Merion Golf Club is hosting the 2013 U.S. Open Championship, and is now available to play free online on World Golf Tour (WGT).
Hole 1 at Merion is one of golf's great opening tee shots, right next to the clubhouse patio for some extra pressure. It's a shorter dogleg right par-4, about 350 yards, but the sycamore tree on the right will discourage most big-hitters from trying to drive the green. A more conservative drive and an accurate approach shot will avoid the bunkers and could yield an opening birdie.
