Maximizing golf intake with least movement at Pinehurst

Posted June 12

The grandstand alongside the 4th and 6th tees might be the best vantage point on the entire course to watch the most golf.

— So, you're headed to the United States Open Championships at Pinehurst this weekend, but you're not sure what to do when you get inside the gates. Whether you're an experienced tournament goer or taking in an event of this magnitude for the first time, attending a U.S. Open can be a bit overwhelming.

Unless you've got one of those hoity-toity luxury tent/club/suite/penthouse passes, I have to assume that you're interested in actually seeing some golf while you're here. Honestly, even if you've got one of those badges you probably want to watch the guys swing and miss greens a bit.

Before and during rounds, these are the two best places to stop:

First, you must spend some time on the driving range. If you like golf, you have to watch these guys hit the ball on the range. The ball sounds so different coming off the club -- sort of like a click and a hiss, as though the air was being let out of a tire. Incredible. Spend about a half hour at the range and then take this advice.

The grandstand alongside the 4th and 6th tees might be the best vantage point on the entire course to watch the most golf. From the middle of the bleachers you can see players play shots into the 3rd green, watch them tee off on the long, par-4 4th, finish the par-5 5th and play the par-3 6th in its entirety.
