Video: Here’s Jeremy Roenick Swimming in the Long Rough at Merion

Jun 6, 2013, 2:30 PM EDT

No, really. That’s former Flyer Jeremy Roenick swimming in the long rough at Merion, the site of the 2013 U.S. Open next week. It’s a jungle out there.

You can watch the moving pictures below in an outtakes clip of Roenick’s memorable moments from a round he played with Villanova’s head basketball coach Jay Wright, Philadelphia Phillies shortstop Jimmy Rollins, and Comcast SportsNet’s Neil Hartman. Their round will be turned into a television special called “An Open Challenge” which you can catch on Saturday on Comcast.

My major takeaway from this outtakes clip: Who doesn’t wish they could have Jimmy Rollins as a pal to narrate your entire life. Guy has to be a blast to play a round of golf with in your foursome.
