Twitter reacts to Shinnecock taking world’s best behind the woodshed

Phil Mickelson at Shinnecock Hills during the 2018 U.S. Open

Shinnecock Hills is decisively winning the fight against the world’s best golfers during the first round of the U.S. Open.

With strong winds and a dried out course, the conditions are exceptionally difficult.

The Twitter world took notice.

But this wasn’t about one disappointing, big-name group. Shinnecock was laying waste to just about everyone.

And golfers got no breaks. Literally every hole on the course provided a vast challenge.

It’s going to be quite a battle on Friday to see who can even make the cut. Then again, those who don’t may be getting off lucky.
