Coming to the United States Open, the topic of Winged Foot was just how challenging it will be and how great it will be to gain some over-par ranking.
The track certainly remains a big trail, but so are some of the shooting that we saw during the first 2 days.
The best shot in the week so far has been a crazy putt from Zach Johnson in the first round of the game on Thursday. His putt is among those which are fun to look at.
But in the shooting department at Winged Foot, Johnson is not the only one.
Up till now, we had two holes-in-one. On Thursday, both of them came to the 7th hole. Patrick Reed’s first was who shot his ball into the cup. A few hours later the seventh was aced by Will Zalatoris. He nearly got another, but his flagstick clung to his 13th green ball.
We got to see some more interesting shots on Friday.
On Par 4 15th hole, the 2nd shot by Matthew Fitzpatrick can only be identified as a good shot.
J.T Poston took a wild one-handed reverse swing.
Cole Hammer aced on a slope with a lengthy putt up.
On Friday, with a 380-yard pass, a second attempt by Bryson DeChambeau scooped up the ninth and last hole.
The pin place at No. 1 also allows players the ability to take advantage of the slope
