They’re Cutting The Knee High Rough At Erin Hills A Couple Days Before The Tourney Starts

That didn’t take long, but don’t freak out over the Erin Hills grass crew working like crazy today cutting down the fescue on at least one hole for the U.S. Open. I’ve been researching into this fescue cutting a little bit and the Twitter golf experts are saying that the crew is just cutting down where the sprinklers have given the grass a healthy drink.

Have to trust the Twitter Golf Experts on this one. Nothing to see here. Just guys hurrying around to get that grass removed.

Normal Tuesday trim on the 4th:

Hahahahahahaha

USGA really took the bite out of some holes, trimming the heather back by 10 yards in spots #USOpen pic.twitter.com/0YflOqNEXB
