If anyone on this site has played there, can you give me a few words about the experience? Anyone know if Freddie is playing this year?

What makes you think he won’t be more accurate off the tee?  He’s had two weeks to work on things

He had plenty of time to work on his game back in the day but he missed fairways then. Hopefully he will hit plenty but if he manages to hit 50% that will be progress.

I love this event.  This may be my second favorite course (after Augusta) out of the courses that the tour plays every year.  It doesn't seem to favor any one style of play and tests every aspect of the game.  One of these days, I need to plan a trip out to LA to attend the tournament just so I can walk the course.

For a primer check out the highlights from the US Am last year at Riviera...these dudes must've been playing out of their minds, Doug Ghin lost ground in the morning on the back 9 after making 3 birdies because Doc Redman made 5!!! Holy schnikees.

Thanks for sharing this! What an incredible final round by both players! Redman's eagle putts were insane. Ghim's putter just went cold there on him during the final 18 holes were he could've built a bigger lead. To watch Redman come back from 2 down and drop a ~40ft eagle putt on the 35th hole then birdie the 36th to square it up and go on to win on the 37th was incredible. I'll have to remind myself to DVR the FS1 channel for this year's USGA tournaments. The women's am here at SD Country Club was awesome as well.

“The Simpsons” is his favorite TV show, porterhouse steak is his favorite food and his 1st tee Riviera walk-up song of choice would be “Return of the Mack” by Mack Morrison.

I stand corrected...don't know why I thought he was playing!  So Speith/McIlroy are second choices, though I don't really fancy either in current form.

DJ is going off at 5-1, which is about the lowest odds I can recall since Tiger's heyday.

As for Riviera itself, course looked immaculate today...breezy and cool (for LA!)...unless you're single digit or solid low teen, it's a really long slog - take it from me! (distance + heavy air + wind + kikuyu)
