The Re-Massacre at WInged Foot – the 2006 U.S. Open


Here’s a telling stat.

Halfway through today (it’s 1:35PM) and Winged Foot already has exceeded the highest first round scoring average of the last five U.S. Opens

Today at Winged Foot – 75.8

2005 Pinehurst – 74.7
2004 Shinnecock – 73.4
2003 Olympia Fields – 72.5
2002 – Bethpage Black – 74.9
2001 – Southern Hills – 75.1

Also, we have a star studded leaderboard at the moment with Montgomerie, Mickelson, Furyk, Funk, Weir and Singh all bunched up.

Like I said before – no course has more of a synergy of U.S. Open history and U.S. Open misery as Winged Foot.
