If you want proof of just how ridiculous the US Open greens at Oakmont are, watch Rory McIlroy holing this incredible 80-foot putt.
The world’s best players are in for an incredibly tough time at Oakmont this week, where lightning quick greens are just one of the challenges they face, together with thick, foreboding rough and hundreds and hundreds of challenging bunkers.
During a recent bit of practice on the greens, McIlroy gave ample evidence of just what the Oakmant greens have in store.
Watch as his ball ends up way back from where it started and drops right into the hole after a circuitous 80-foot journey on the putting surface:
