Final Rounds of US Open In Prime Time

The US Open Is On The West Coast this year and NBC is going to take advantage of that by broadcasting the last two rounds in Eastern prime time. The time difference between Torrey Pines in San Diego means that the third round on June 14 will finish at 10 pm eastern, and the fourth at 9 pm.

That’s terrific news, especially for the USGA. Showing its biggest event in prime time will reach a much larger general audience. And if Tiger is in contention, it’ll get the biggest ratings of any golf event ever.

It’s probably no coincidence that three of the next five US Opens are on the West Coast.

Father’s Day. Prime time golf. It doesn’t get any better than that.

By the way, you can see a photo tour of my trip to Torrey Pines in San Diego here.

  1. “I read somewhere that trees are 80% air. I wonder why my balls always hit the 20%”

    The “80% air” refers to volume. But your golf ball needs a straight line through. You have to imagine the tree flattened like a pancake/wall. It would no longer be “80% air,” but you have not added any branches or leaves. To get by, your ball needs to find one of the holes in that flattened pancake.
