Under bright sunshine and a gentle breeze, Sergio Garcia signed autographs near the tee box at the 16th hole during his final practice round for the U.S. Open. He then sent his drive in the direction of one of those charming red wicker baskets that sit atop the flagpoles, the white ball coming to rest nicely in the middle of the fairway with nary a smudge of mud.
Play is underway at the 113th U.S. Open.
Under cloudy skies and with weather prospects dicey for the rest of the day, the U.S. Open returned to the Merion for the first time in 32 years.
"The naysayers dominated the early part of that conversation," O'Toole added. "But they've gone by the wayside now."
"The question with Merion was always whether the other things that go into staging an Open _ infrastructure, logistics, those things mostly _ would work out. It took a lot of creativity," he said.
