The number one player in the world didn’t get a chance to tee it up today in what was an on and off day at Oakmont. We had three different rain delays, and over 7 hours played only 10 holes. Tomorrow will be a full day of golf at Oakmont if the weather cooperates and gives us some sunshine which is now badly needed after todays flooding. The course completely changed over night, as the softer conditions changed the whole approach off the tee, and even more into the greens. These we firm and fast, and today they were soft and fast. Even with the moisture, the greens still had tremendous speed, which at times made no sense.
Tomorrow will be a full day of golf starting at 7:30 and ending near dark, as the USGA will attempt to catch up, and get the players around, many of which will need to play 36 holes tomorrow. Tomorrow I suspect the rough will be a lot hardy as it will retain its moisture and be very very difficult. I suspect scores will be higher as the championship continues.
