Basket Cases

Merion Golf Course wins. Champions are under siege. Diabolical greens, witchy weather, basket-sticks. Perfectly struck, well-read putts rarely hit the bottom of the cup. Two survivors limped in today under par. Phippy and an unknown duffer. Weekend equilibrium will be tested. If you care. Meanwhile, love the pace of play campaign. Step up to the ball. Take the shot. While We’re Young.

June 1981. Last U.S. Open played at Merion. Before Dr.Husband. June 1982. Guests watched Pebble Beach as I married Dr.Husband at 122 E. 76th. Fast work. Still standing.
