McIlroy confident in swing ahead of U.S. Open

  • Tommy Fleetood's golf equipment Monday at the 2019 U.S. Open

Since 2017, Brooks Koepka has won two U.S. Opens, two PGA Championships and finished second to Tiger Woods at the Masters. Visibility was reduced to about 250 yards.

Having missed the cut on that occasion McIlroy enjoyed a record-breaking victory at Congressional 12 months later, but since then his best finish in the US Open is a tie for ninth at Chambers Bay in 2015 and he has missed the last three halfway cuts.

The USGA admitted they went "too far" with the set-up of Shinnecock Hills previous year after only three players broke par in a third round during which Phil Mickelson was penalised for hitting a moving ball as it rolled off the 13th green. "And really just to create something where players' shot-making ability, mental resolve, physical stamina are tested".

Williams was on Woods' bag for 13 of his 15 career major wins and also won the 2013 Masters with Scott. "It's just that when I'm stiff and not moving as well it becomes a little bit more hard", he said.

"I had a chat with Johnny Miller at the champions dinner and he said if you look at the history of major championships, that first round is so important", said McIlroy, who started the 2011 US Open, 2012 US PGA, 2014 Open and 2014 US PGA with rounds of 65, 67, 66 and 66 respectively. He could, and possibly should, have gone one better the following year as he led going into the final round of the 2016 US Open at Oakmont.

The USGA tries to make the U.S. Open the toughest tournament in golf in terms of course setup so it's quite possible no player finishes under par this year. No one has greater history at Pebble Beach than Woods, not so much by number of victories but margin of victory.

Tiger Woods returns to Pebble Beach where he won the 2000 US Open by 15 shots. "Athletically, that's one of the challenges".

And he says: "I will use the coming days to take in all the news". "We know that newspapers sometimes have to make a show to move the market and sell".

Simpson was fifth at Augusta in April on a course that doesn't suit, so now that he gets a challenge he likes, his recent good play could be rewarded 50/1. He drained a 30-foot putt that guaranteed his participation in the Open Championship at Royal Portrush next month.

He put in a bogey-free round under pressure then and his patient approach may serve him well again. Power never hurts anywhere in golf, though it's not as necessary as venues like Erin Hills or Torrey Pines. "And these greens. we don't face greens like this, this small and this steep. And I hit it a little right on two and it hit a rock and went out of bounds", McIlroy said. "I'd much rather be in the fairway hitting a 7-iron in than you're trying to hit a driver up there".

Woods and Spieth will be in the same group Thursday afternoon when it counts. Koepka (+850) won the 2017 U.S. Open at Erin Hills in Wisconsin by four shots and then a year ago by a stroke at Shinnecock Hills in NY.

"It's just one of the most awesome pieces of property in the world, and the fact that we get to play golf on it is pretty unbelievable", Spieth said. It's certainly a very different golf course than we're used to seeing in February.

So the USGA has spent extra time leading up to this year's tournament talking to dozens of players about how best to lay out the course so it can still achieve the goal of being the "toughest test" in golf, while not crossing the line and being unfair to the players.

The USGA wants to get it right after four years of various mishaps. "I want to win more majors".
