Erin Hills is the longest U.S. Open course in history. The rough is thick, as usual. It may make for an ultimate test of golf, but those expecting another major showdown between Stenson and Mickelson, a la last year’s British Open, or Sergio Garcia and Justin Rose, a la this year’s Masters, might be disappointed.
