Watching golf at home from the comfort of your couch can
be exciting but you really can't get a complete understanding of what the golfers are going through or the nervous tension
in the air without being on the links for yourself. Spending a beautiful summer day outside walking an incredible course while
seeing the best golfers in the world battle one another is an experience you will never forget and one which will likely have
you wanting to never have to settle for watching from your couch again. As the days and holes wear on, the drama builds and
each stroke becomes more and more vital. The nervous tension in the air builds and this can be felt both by the golfers swinging
their clubs and the fans following them from hole to hole holding their breath with each approach to the ball.
US Open was predominantly an event for golfers from the United States, but the 2007 tournament was the first in which there
were more international golfers than Americans.
