Erin Hills cutting some fescue
Posted: Jun 14, 2017 3:04 PM CDT
The Erin Hills fescue has been a big topic of conversation already at the U.S. Open.
The fescue even has its own parody twitter account that has been up for over a year.
Over the weekend professional golfer Kevin Na went on a rant about the long grass located at every hole around the course.
In a statement Tuesday evening the USGA issued a statement saying they thought they might have to mow certain parts of the rough due to a combination of high winds and heavy rain. Erin Hills picked up about an inch and a half of rain Monday night so the grounds crew mowed limited areas of fescue on holes 4, 12, 14 and 18.
That should make some golfers happy.
