I recently saw something about how DRY and HOT it has been in the UK and how dried out and hard to course will be this week for the OPEN. if you watched any of the coverage of the Scotish Opne last week you know how BAD the course condidions were. I looked at the course and it was hard to watch. The entire course was dried out and brown to the point of being almost DEAD. Golf balls were rolling out more than 50 yards off the tee and some were going well past that. I remember hearing one golfer say he hit a mid iron and it went OVER 325 yards. That's a joke in my opinion and just one more reason I am NOT a fan of the OPEN, be it the US Open or the British or what ever.
I can only hope that the OPEN isn't a repeat of the Scotish mess.
