Pain And Suffering At The US Open

The US Open ended on Sunday. This year it was at Merion Golf Club in Ardmore, PA. The course was considered too small for modern equipment. The course measured in at 6,996 yards. The experts thought scoring records were going to occur. They thought the modern tour professional playing modern equipment at an old course like Merion would be a joke.
Merion got the last laugh.
Even par won the tournament.
Justin Rose won his first major over Phil Mickelson, who suffered another heartbreaking loss at the Open.
He was the overnight leader on Saturday. It looked like he just might pull through. The first two holes he was vintage Phil. Then he double bogeyed #3. He made an eagle. Then he bogeyed the shortest and easiest hole on the course at #13.
Then Justin Rose came out of nowhere and won the championship. Phil was the bridesmaid for the sixth time.
So close yet so far away. Now we all have to wait for next year again.
