    I'm sure most of you have seen this before, but I had to comment on a putt I just made at the first green on Oakmont. No, not "made", it didn't go in, but rather 10 ft. past the cup lol! Just to set this up, I'm on T11 speed with the pin at the front left. My approach drifted to the high side of the hole so I ended up with about a 15 footer, but downhill about 9" (ouch). So I thought "I need to really baby this thing". I pulled back what I thought was about 3.75 ft of power and the ball took off like it had a bottle rocket stuck to it. Turns out I had the 30 ft. scale up on the putter LOL! Ooops! So, note to self and everyone else, check your putters before you hit :)
