On June 18, the U.S. Open Golf Championship will begin at the Chambers Bay golf course in Washington. One of the most interesting tidbits about this tournament has to do with the opening hole which will change in par from one round to another. The first hole will either be 496 or 598 yards long and will either be a par 4 or 5. It depends on the scoring, the wind – and the decision of Mike Davis, the USGA’s executive director. This hole goes due west, right in front of Puget Sound. While the water does not get anywhere near the hole, the prevailing southwesterly wind can make this a tough way to start a round of golf betting. The new back tee gives the tournament director the choice of making it a par 4 or 5. As a par 4, using a middle iron to the green makes it a tough shot to hold. As a par 5, there is more room from the tee, but that southwest wind will make it hard to get to the green in two, particularly because the area before the green sends balls to the left and down a slope.
