I thought it was an entertaining US Open. I've liked Matt Fitzpatrick since he won the US Am, also at Brookline, with his kid brother hauling his clubs around.

Also at the Hazeltine Ryder Cup in 2016 he was subject to some severe heckling. That Friday afternoon he was not in the the lineup but on the range working on his game. A large booming voiced bellowed out "HEY FITZPATRICK, WHAT TIME IS YOUR MOM PICKING YOU UP?!?!" Even a couple of Euros started to chuckle.

Still does not really look old enough to drink, but he's got a Major at age 27.

Mickelson was right. The PGA needed competition.

Lo and behold, they're increasing payouts and creating a better schedule due to LIV.

Workers have a lot of power if they're willing to use it.

More limited field no cut events. Meh...

That's for a few tournaments. Others with bigger payouts will cover the entire field.

Working conditions are also improving.

You have to earn your way into those events. By either winning (Tournament of Champions) or being in the World Top 64 (WGC events)
I get it, just those don't interest me much, but neither do the vast majority of regular PGA Tour/WGC events.
