    I could get used to this.

    Other than virtual reality, Fox will also make use of flying drone cams to cover the event, cameras around the tee box, and microphones embedded in the bottom of every hole around the course. There's a camera-equipped RC car to provide ground level shots, as well as high frame rate cameras and 4K cameras to provide a better look at each swing.

    Phil's shirt is going to cause seizures on close ups.

    always wear solid colors.

    Never stopped. Especially the majors. Golf and baseball are they only sports on this time of year.

    I'm surprised by the scores so far with as much as everyone was crying about how difficult the course is.

    I think the USGA had to play it somewhat safe with the set up on Day 1 plus it doesn't look windy at all... Hope they put some water down throughout the week and just let them play....

    Would love to see a Spieth/Phil final pairing

    The grounds were an abandoned quarry as of 2002.

    I love that Fox is putting this on during primetime tonight. Don't think I've ever watched golf until 11 pm before.
