U.S. Open 2017: Phil Mickelson keeps playing options open with eye on weather. Andy North overcame injuries to win U.S. Open – twice.
The 117th US Open is the second major of the year and it will be held at Erin Hills in Erin, Wisconsin for the first time in its 23-year history. It’s situated in the south east of the state that borders Illinois in the south and Minnesota and Iowa to the west.
The US Open 2017 will see the likes of Rory McIlroy and defending champion Dustin Johnson attempting to write their names into the history books alongside famous names such as Ben Hogan, Jack Nicklaus, and Tiger Woods.
The favourites for the US Open 2017 are Dustin Johnson (11/2), Jordan Spieth (9/1), and Rory McIlroy (10/1).
Erin Hills will be the sixth public course to host the US Open — with Pebble Beach, Pinehurst, and Torrey Pines before it — and is expected to attract 350,000 spectators.
CAMBRIDGE – Andy North, standing inside his cottage on Lake Ripley, motions for a guest to enter through the screen door. He’s moving slowly, gingerly, wincing with every step. His face is drawn and pale.
“Double hernia surgery,” he says, an explanation and an apology conveyed with a broadcaster’s economy of language.
Pardon the pun, but it’s par for the course. North, 67, of Madison, is the only golfer from Wisconsin to win the U.S. Open, and he did it twice. But he was waylaid by an assortment of injuries, surgeries and illnesses, the cumulative result of which left him a shell of the golfer he could have been.
There were back and neck problems, which plagued him throughout his career. Five surgeries on his left knee. One on his right knee. One on his neck. Skin cancer. Plastic surgery to rebuild his nose. Prostate cancer.
“I had surgery every year from 1986 to ’93,” he says. “I was going through operations every year. You know, it’s Labor Day, let’s go have surgery.”
It’s been more than 30 years since North won his second U.S. Open title in 1985 and he has played little competitive golf over the past decade. Most golf fans today know him more for his astute observations as an analyst and reporter for ESPN than for his playing career, which effectively ended in the early 1990s.
