One of the more difficult challenges about the U.S. Open is just how thick the rough can get. With the brutally tall grass lining the course, the pros definitely have their work cut out for them if they are unfortunate enough to land in it. It’s one of the things that makes for tough competition even for the most talented golfers. This year’s event will be held at Torrey Pines in San Diego, and they aren’t making things any easier on the field of competitors.
Local pro, Xander Schauffele, stopped by the course last week to check out the conditions. He is no doubt feeling a tremendous amount of pressure after seeing just what’s in store. In the video posted by Callaway Golf, Schauffele’s ball can’t even be seen as is lies in the rough off the 18th green and his club is stopped dead in it’s tracks as he makes contact.
