Reflections On The U.S. Open

June 2011
The U.S. Open routinely exposes a golfer's emotions, good and bad. Some players can laugh about the ups and downs right away; some need a few years to gain perspective. These classic stories from the pages of Golf Digest take you behind the scenes and experience the Open in a completely different way.
-- Mike O'Malley
Tom Weiskopf

Tom Weiskopf, whose best U.S. Open finish was a T-2 behind Jerry Pate at Atlanta Athletic Club in 1976: "When people say they dream of playing in the U.S. Open someday, what they're really saying is, they'd like to be good enough to play. Trust me, the U.S. Open is not fun."
