    Just wondering if you will be able to shoot some practice/warm up rounds on BPB on Mon 6/22 prior to playing your final round for the championship?

    I doubt it. We've been practising for a month now .. tomorrow we just play with higher winds.

    I wouldn't want to play without practising, I'm always a bit rusty out of the gate :P

    But I didn't make the cut unfortunately! I could have one time, but I messed up a 4 feet put on 15 (and I bogied 16 on top of that, not that it really mattered anymore).

    In hindsight I should have bought the R9 driver earlier, I only bought it 3 days ago, it really makes a big difference on Bethpage Black.

    Good luck to everyone who made it, I'm looking forward to the results!

    Am I missing something?  Where did you find BP to play a practice round?

    Go to the us open screen - then go to play a round - You will get an option for single or group. Play is from the blue tees and wind is moderate

    Yeah the tees are up in the practice round. I just birdied #5, take that you ungrateful hole!! lol... Front seems to mirror the back with what they did in multiplayer.

    In the Us Open screen, it's under the  'Experience Bethpage' tab, as opposed to the 'Championship Events' tab.

    Darn, I suppose those blue tees are a little closer than before, I just had a lost ball on 3 because it was way over the green!

    I sure hope we will be able to play the difficult tees again, I would like to be able to get par or lower in the same conditions as qualifying.
