Re: US Open Golf

Hmmm Dechambeau looks pretty solid. I reckon they need to start rethinking how to set up these courses Absolutely nothing wrong with the course set-up, long rough, tough greens. As in all majors, hitting fairways and greens is 'job one'. I'm not a DeChambeau fan, but the guy is so strong, hitting f...

Re: US Open Golf

Finally USGA got a course set-up right! Long rough, no tricked up greens, although time of year has made a difference. Winged Foot is showing it's teeth. As for DeChambeau, he is an arrogant pr**k, one thing in his favour is his swing is based on Moe Norman, arguably the most pure ball striker ever,...

Re: Where will we finish next season

I doubt it takes a brain surgeon to figure out the next season will be our toughest to survive, other than the first under Dyche. The incoming clubs are far stronger, on paper, than the departed. In Dyche......and commitment to team spirit....... we trust. Anything north of 18th works well for me.
