It’s starting to look a lot like a U.S. Open.
Two weeks from today, the USGA will crown it’s 2013 U.S. Open champion at Merion.
And one week from today — well, really next Monday — the week-long event kicks off with the start of practice rounds and the opening of the U.S. Open Experience (a big merchandise tent and some other exhibits) at Independence Mall.
Tournament play goes from Thursday, June 13 – Sunday, June 16.
Often mentioned over the last few months was the logistical challenge of bringing an event as large as the U.S. Open to a site as small as Merion. Well, the USGA posted these photos to its Facebook page on Friday, allowing you an early look at some of the setup on the clubhouse-side of Ardmore Ave.
