Bellerive was awesome, although the round I was at (Friday) was obviously cut short by rain/storms.
There was zero wind and the balls just stopped on the green a few inches from the pitch marks. It was target golf...which is great, but the scores would not be as low in different conditions. There were some LONG par fours. 4 and 10 in particular.
Food situation was horrible. Everyone had to wait at least an hour in line to get food. And, it was super, super hot. But, a fun time was had by all.
To Cruzer's point, is there any doubt the PGA has passed the US Open in terms of its place in the major championship loop? Better tournaments, better courses. Better major.
