Isn't delaying the women's U.S. Open for fog a contradiction?
Pardon me for quipping about this two days after it happened, I’ve been getting settled in Europe (small dogs, smaller cars) and learning my way around TravelGolf.com’s massive Castle Office.
Suspending the U.S. Open an entire day for fog is ridiculous. I thought the U.S. Open was supposed to be golf’s most difficult test. So shouldn’t fog be exactly what they’re looking for? Who says difficult conditions can be regulated ONLY by the tournament committee? Man, the LPGA is so hot right now even Mother Nature decided that she wanted to participate in making the U.S. Open golf’s ultimate challenge – and She gets disssed!
You can’t cancel a day’s round of the U.S. Open for fog. Annika and Michelle aren’t trying to park ocean liners, they’re trying to hit fairways. It’ll be a little harder in fog, and if it were the Skin’s game, I’d send everyone bowling too. It’d make great TV drama to see someone blast a drive down the wrong fairway because they couldn’t see either.
