Golfers want look at Oakmont

Several golfers have committed to visiting Oakmont Country Club prior to the US Open, just to test the course.

Among them are Tiger Woods, Phil Mickelson, Vijay Singh and Davis Love III.

Woods played the course a few weeks ago, but knows it has changed since then. He played three rounds at Oakmont on April 22 and 23rd. Snow had blanketed the Pittsburgh area just one week before and the rough wasn't ready.

Since then, the greens have recaptured their speed. There has been no measureable rain in Pittsburgh in two weeks, and the fairways have firmed as a result. The rough, as well, has thickened deeply, leading to even harder Open-style conditions.

Also in golf news, Tiger doesn't think he will play in another PGA Tour event until the Open, basically confirming that he will play several additional practice rounds at Oakmont.
