Note to the United States Golf Association: If Jordan Spieth is pissed off Cheap Men's Nike Air Max 95 Black Anthracite UK , you're doing something wrong.On Sunday, Spieth won the US Open, becoming the sixth golfer in history to do so after winning the preceding -Masters. But during the tournament's second round, television -microphones caught the eventual champion muttering about the "dumbest hole I've ever played in my life."
The normally mild--mannered Spieth was clearly frustrated by the double -bogey he shot on Chambers Bay Golf Course's 18th hole, a 525-yard (480-meter) par four. But his comments were far from the only discouraging words -spoken by a golfer last week.
This type of controversy isn't a new concept at the US Open. The USGA loves to create -overly difficult playing conditions for its national tournament. More often than not Cheap Nike Air VaporMax 97 Summit White UK , that leads to lousy golf (which no one wants to see) and public complaints from the players (which no one wants to hear).
This year, however, the -players weren't squawking about degree of difficulty. -Instead, they complained about the miserable quality of the putting greens. Ian Poulter posted a Twitter photo that looked less like a golf course and more like a hardscrabble, Los Angeles front lawn during a drought.
The problem with Chambers Bay's rarely watered Cheap Men's Nike Air Max 97 Trainers Black University Red UK , randomly uneven greens is that for four days, they essentially removed the element of skill from the game of golf. The fact that the tournament was won by Spieth, the sport's most -recent breakout star, was more of a happy accident than an accurate reflection of his eye-catching abilities.
Is that really what fans want to see? What if the NBA Finals were played on a court with moving baskets? What if the Super Bowl awarded six points for some touchdowns, but three points for others? Fans want to see champions crowned on the basis of skill Cheap Women's Nike Air Force 1-100 Low White UK , not winning--lottery-ticket luck.
The good news is that a -worthy champion won last weekend's US Open at Chambers Bay. The bad news is that he had to play that course in the first place.
