Sunday at Oakland Hills

The overnight rains have softened the course just enough to keep balls in the fairway. We'll see as the day goes on how the course plays for all, but it certainly helped the players finishing on Sunday morning or playing all of round three on Sunday.

It will be curious to see what happens with three balls off each nine to try to avoid the weather. A broadcasting coup for TNT and not what sagging CBS wanted - probably an early finish.

Oakland Hills for the average player without excessive green speeds and thick rough remains for the club player a reasonable albeit hard test of golf that is enjoyable if one likes challenging greens, if you don't it's not for you. One tip for the player who someday gets to play Oakland Hills South, keep the approach below the pin position.
