Erin Hills golf course big winner at U.S. Open

Erin Hills golf course big winner of...

Overnight rain created record-setting rounds on Saturday.  Winds put the bite back into the course on Sunday.

Reviews on Erin Hills are mostly favorable, including Jordan Spieth who called it "tough and fair".

"I think it's an awesome golf course. I think that's been the consensus from everybody. In my opinion I would like to see another one here down the road," Jordan Spieth said.

"I think it's a great test. If the wind was up like this all week, your winning score is much higher than it would have been. And the scores were low because the greens were good," Brian Harman said.

"It would be a lot of fun to see this course firm and fast. Here if you played some solid golf and hit your shots where you needed to, you still needed to be precise but you got rewarded and you could take advantage of that. A little bit more of a mental headache if we do get to see that," Rickie Fowler said.

"I'd like to see the fescue a little bit thinner and the fairways a little bit narrower so it's not a full shot penalty for hitting it in the fescue but it would be harder to hit the fairways kind of thing," Steve Stricker said.

One thing that was almost a given heading into the week was the support another major championship would get here in Wisconsin.  Stricker calling the crowds unbelievable, and they came out in full force.
