I was more asking myself, where could I play a few holes when I arrive at 7PM on Monday evening? Even though English is my second language, I really wanted to share this experience with you and how much it meant to me.

US Open preview: What no one is talking about

By Connor Brown

The US Open is just a few days away and what an exciting time golf is in right now. We’ve all heard about the young guys like Justin Thomas, Jordan Spieth, Rickie Fowler and crew who can win any particular week.

With Tiger rolling into the Hamptons with his 20 million dollar yacht and reminding everyone that he was king (and still is?) you just never know who may win the US Open this year at Shinnecock. There are a few things that no one wants to talk about however, but I certainly will.
