“Predictable,” he said. “Bethpage, it’s all green. Bethpage is carry. I don’t know if there’s any green you can run up on. . . . It’s a really long course from the back tees. I mean, it’s incredible.”
That said, Ogilvy figures that if the weather and U.S. Golf Association officials cooperate it “will be a really fun Open.” Now there are two words that don’t always fit: Open and fun.
