Key Stats and Course

US Open betting odds preview tipsThe Donald Ross masterpiece and hole-by-hole restoration ahead of the 2014 U.S. Open at Pinehurst shows so many sides of the strategic choices and challenges at Pinehurst No. 2. A decade later, a severe and stiff challenge awaits with the bermuda turtleback greens providing the most difficult challenge of the year on Tour along with the very firm and fast conditions. Beyond some of the key strokes gained stats, players will need to overcome mental obstacles which are provided in this video and outlined in my additional course and U.S. Open coverage in Forbes. 

A "very imaginative and inventive short game" is needed, says Rory McIlroy.
