Sick of wicker yet? Not as sick as some of the players at Merion. Consider, for instance, Matthew Goggin, who saw a promising approach at the 6th bounce off the metal flagstick and pinball a hundred feet away. Goggin would bogey the hole, continuing a good-but-not-great day.
Given how brutal the course has been, we're thinking most Tour players would be just fine if they didn't see any more wicker flagsticks for another 32 years.
