LAMM AT LARGE: The US Open Is Here

todayJune 14, 2022

Golf returns to one of its most iconic courses this week with the U.S. Open being played at The Country Club in Brookline, Mass., just outside of Boston.
It is at The Country Club where a 20-year-old caddie named Frances Ouimet took down two of the game’s titans, Englishmen Harry Vardon and Ted Ray, to win the 1913 Open and inspire many Americans to start playing golf.
Since then the Club has hosted many national events, most of them national amateur championships. The Club has hosted three Opens but none since 1988.
I’m telling all of this because this week ought to be a celebration of the game at one of the five clubs that started the USGA.  On a quirky course made up of holes from three nines, many totally different from others.
But I’m afraid all that wonderful history will be pushed aside by the media which is still salivating for more info about players now tied to the LIV  Tour, specially Phil Mickelson and Dustin Johnson.
I’m sick and tired of hearing about the LIV Tour. Players have made their decisions and the PGA Tour has handed out punishment. Now let’s move on and enjoy what should be a great Open.
