The US Open is right around the corner. If you really put any thought into it, it is really one of the coolest concepts in sports. Amateurs, as long as they maintain a certain criteria, can actually play their way in to a Major event and play alongside golf legends.
As a big fan of baseball, football and basketball, this idea is inconceivable. Hell, even the field of players that move on to pros from college is really microscopic if you look at the grand scheme of things. That’s what makes the US Open fun and exciting.
