U.S. Open done the Fox Way

I've held off on passing judgement on Fox's first attempt at covering my favorite major: the U.S. Open. Until now.

Joe Buck is a pain and I've never liked him and during the open my disliked for him grew. During the four rounds, Buck drove me nuts but talking over shots the whole time. Listening to Buck for four days make me yern for the days of Dan Hicks. 

Greg Norman was ok, not great. Norman gave some good insight on Jason Day's issues but beyond that he was not great.

The one thing I did like was the time they gave golf course designers to talk about all for the issues regarding fescue grass and the way it dominates the course. 

For a first major championship, Fox did an ok job but there is a ton of improvement that has to be made next year at Oakmont, my favorite US Open venue.
