It’s finally here, today marks the opening round of the US Open at Pinehurst. Much has been made of the new-look number two course and world number one Adam Scott is happy with the changes:
"It's been much anticipated by most of the players coming back here, because of significant changes and we're all interested to see what they did with the golf course since 2005. I don't think anyone's disappointed. I think what they've done has made a great golf course even better and it's going to present a great challenge for the US Open championship this week."
Despite an uneven last time out at The Memorial, Rory McIlroy has had a good start to 2014 with a victory at the BMW PGA Championship recording a total of eight top 10 finishes in his 11 appearances this year.
Winner of this tournament in 2011, the Northern Irishman targeting multiple major wins this season:
"I think it's definitely a reasonable goal. There hasn't been many, you have to go back to I think Padraig Harrington in 2008 to have a multiple Major champion in a single year. So, it doesn't happen that often, but I feel like my game is in a good enough place where I can definitely give myself a chance to do that. I've got three Majors left this season and I do feel as though my game is good enough to contend in all of them."
Golfing World’s Cara Robinson has been at Pinehurst all week and she caught up with Dustin Johnson to see how he was feeling going into the second major of the season:
