And so it begins....

Pinehurst is ready for the Open!  There are several areas to be watching closely, golf digest outlines them here
The greens are reported at 12-12.5 feet.  There is some concerns about a few of them as the rain that was predicted didn't come.  In order to keep greens at these speeds, they have to be on the edge of death.  They don't push them too soon, they are meant to peak on Sunday.  Pay close attention to how these greens look over the course of the tournament, you will notice that their is a price to pay for keeping them fast.  Pinehurst hosts the Women's Open immediately following the Men's, so it will be interesting how the greens will come out of this weekend.
