I've seen putt-putt courses with better setups than some recent U.S. Opens. You would think it was rocket science to set an appropriate test.

^^^ This.  You could pick any random week in any random summer (when they're not hosting a US Open of course) and Shinnecock as it sits would be a better test than after the USGA has set it up.

Mike Davis said they weren't going to repeat the mistakes of the past at Shinnecock and three days later he's on TV apologizing for repeating the mistakes of the past.  That just doesn't happen at any of the other three majors.  And yet it's something of a habit at the US Open.

If you ever want to see the definition of an organization unable to get out of its own way just take a look at the USGA.  Just embarrassing that they can't do better.
