Rugged rough at Oakmont

July 07, 2010

OAKMONT, Pa. -- The graduated rough at Oakmont, while fairer to those who miss fairways by just a hair, will really penalize the wild hitters. I just came back from a late-day stroll around Oakmont and snapped the 30-second video below to illustrate exactly how high and intimidating this rough will be. (The tallest rough is about three and a half feet high.) Because, you know, Oakmont isn't quite difficult enough.
