Gil Morgan in 1992 @ Pebble Beach was the first player to reach 10 under par in the US Open and got it to 12 under by the 7th hole.
Only two players in the first 116 US Opens ever reached 10 under par. Tiger in 2000 and Rory in 2011.
Then the wheels fell off finishing 77-81 in rounds 3 & 4.
That and if is was being played as a par 70.
read the thread. Course was set up based on normal wiscy winds and not being soft. If winds were up and not soft scores would be half of what they are now
Only two players in the first 116 US Opens ever reached 10 under par. Tiger in 2000 and Rory in 2011. There are currently five players at 10 under par or better through three rounds. But do tell me again how this course is super difficult.
I won't be too hard on myself for forgetting Morgan considering the self-immolation that took place in the ensuing rounds. Point still stands, this course is giving up scores at a record pace.
