Pinehurst No. 2 is playing so firm, fast, and difficult, that players are now actually performing great feats of athleticism to mark their ball before it starts rolling off the Donald Ross turtleback greens.
Rory has hit some good shots today, and isn't playing particularly bad, but he's 3-over through his first five holes and caught some really tough breaks on these greens.
One way to take all that danger out is by simply dunking it right in the cup, as Matt Kuchar did right after NBC's Johnny Miller exclaimed just how difficult a shot he was facing in a bunker at No. 4.
