Par 4 Video: Gajtka, Weiss Tee Up a Fall U.S. Open, Talk Golf Seasons



The U.S. Open has come to September for the first time, with Zac Weiss joining me to tee up our nation’s championship on another Par 4 video!

Dustin Johnson is on top of the golf world — and literally on top of the world ranking — after his FedEx Cup tour de force, but is he the favorite at Winged Foot? Which of the other challengers might have an edge at one of the most frequent U.S. Open venues?

Also, Zac and I dig into the USGA’s decision to lean back on traditional courses for future Opens. Good for the game, or too risk-averse? Finally, we debate which season of the year is best for playing. I vote for fall, but Zac had a different thought.
