Lightning forced the USGA to clear the course Thursday morning at the U.S. Open. Inevitably, that meant hoardes of media members flooding to the media dining tent because well … that’s what we do.
But hungry, underpaid journalists weren’t the only ones who showed up. Lee Westwood, Martin Kaymer, Luke Donald and their caddies came to take in a little football err… soccer.
England was locked up with Wales at Euro 2016 and despite a quest to win a major — which would be a first for Westwood and Donald, the two Englishmen — the soccer match was apparently important enough to brave the elements for.
That, or the media tent was closer than the clubhouse.
