115th US OPEN

On Thursday Tom and I (along with Papa) went to the first round of the US OPEN.
The merchandise tent.....it felt like a REAL store not a TENT!
 The perimeter walls were just covered with hats!
 Walking to find a spot to watch.....
This is the second tee.....
Yup we were THAT close.....
 (Not zoomed in)
 Watched them put the 16th hole in
We found a spot in the middle of the 2nd hole where we could watch the drive, the approach shot and then the putting.....
Again it was AMAZING to be so close to players that you watch on tv!
 The 17 hole.....
We spent most of our time on the 16th hole where we sat in the grandstands.  We saw all the players come through!  This is the group of Dustin Johnson, Adam Scott and Sergio Garcia.   
Later we watched Phil Mickelson, Bubba Watson and Angel Cabrera come through but those pictures are on Tom's phone so I will post another time.  After we watched the morning groups, go through, we had lunch and we watched Tiger Woods, Rickie Fowler and Louis Oosthuizen play number 2 before we left.  

We had orginally planed on taking the boys with us but after Nana and Papa went to the first practice round we all decided it was not a good idea.  Nana stayed home with the boys while Tom, myself and Papa went.  We got up at 4am just to get to the parking site where we had to catch the shuttle to get to the course.  Just a little in site we did not make it onto the course until after 730am!  The course is beautiful but not ment to have people walking all around it, so we decided to pick a spot and stay put.  We did watch all the moring groups and almost all the afternoon groups play the hole we were sitting at.  
I am so glad we were able to go and experience it.  I hope once the boys get older we can experience it with them as well!
