TOWN OF ERIN, Wis. - Final preparations are being made for the U.S. Open in southeastern Wisconsin where the national spotlight will soon shine on Erin Hills Golf Course.
Championship play runs June 12-18. But, before the professionals arrive, Green Bay Packers players got a chance to try out the course Wednesday. Mason Crosby, Bryan Bulaga, Don Barclay, and Jordy Nelson teed off at 8 a.m. Conditions were windy. But, Crosby, a kicker, was making the adjustments he has made at so many Packers' games.
Crosby told WTMJ-TV that he's used to working with the trajectory of the wind.
Nelson says he's confident Wisconsinites and others will pack the event, which should only encourage tournament organizers to come back.
