GolfWRX is live from the 2018 U.S. Open at Shinnecock Hills Golf Club (par 70; 7,440 yards) in Southhampton, New York. The U.S. Open returns to Shinnecock for the first time since 2004 when Retief Goosen won (he failed to qualify for the 2018 event).

Phil Mickelson, who has two top-5 finishes at Shinnecock Hills, will seek to fill out his career Grand Slam with a win this week. Also, it's Tiger Woods' 10-year anniversary of winning the legendary 2008 U.S. Open at Torrey Pines -- that was his most recent major championship victory.

Also in the field are headliners Dustin Johnson (now ranked No. 1 in the Official World Golf Rankings), Justin Thomas (No. 2), Justin Rose (No. 3), Jon Rahm (No. 4) and Jordan Spieth (No. 5).

Brooks Koepka (No. 9) is the defending champion; he won last year by four shots for his first and only major so far in his career.

Check out our photos from Shinnecock Hills below!

A warm-up weight that most would use for full swing.

Justin Thomas and Titleist tweeted and FaceBooked a tease photo.  I think you can see enough to figure out the color scheme.

So I really liked the putter head cover with all the Native American headdress characters on page 1 of the photos. I looked on the USGA website however and I couldn't find the exact same one. Does anybody have any ideas where to get one?

Rahm won't carry both 60's, will he?  Or does he need the extra one in case he breaks one across his knee?!

Interesting to see what Kuchar is doing with his wedges.  Looks like he finally replaced his Cleveland RTX (original wedge) with a Callaway MD4 X grind 58.  Then it looks like he's tinkering with possibly a Cleveland RTX-3 62 as well.  Anyone else notice this?

Duf is such a baller, but watching him putt gives me the same feeling in my stomach as all of those Ben Stiller movies where you're just meant to feel uncomfortable for the main character. Whatever the hell is happening in that drill is not helping the situation.

I have 14 clubs from the same OEM
and I'm feeling self-conscious
about it.

**Internal monologue** It's a carry bag. Not judging others finances, but how bad can a fabric carry bag be? **Looks a Stitch site** HOLY s***.
