"Oakmont is going to be tough"

June 27, 2010

PITTSFORD, N.Y. -- The next major stop for the LPGA Tour is the U.S. Women's Open at Pennsylvania's Oakmont Country Club in two weeks, and many of the players are already preparing for a grueling test. "My caddie heard the greens there are like potato chips," said Ai Miyazato on Sunday.

Uber-coach David Leadbetter was in the gallery at Locust Hill watching over his pupils Michelle Wie and Suzann Pettersen this week, and he recounted Pettersen's review after she played a practice round at Oakmont earlier this month. "She said it's going to be really tough," he told me. "She thinks there will be plenty of players who won't break 100."
