The 2007 U.S. Open Championship at Oakmont: A preview

It seems each U.S. Open tries to outdo the previous in terms of difficulty, and this year's Open at Oakmont, outside of Pittsburgh, is no different. The course has been lengthened since its last championship in 1994, when it played a humane 6,940 yards and a par 71. This year, it will play 7,230 yards, and par has been dropped to 70.
