U.S. Open: How Tricky Conditions at Oakmont Will Affect Play
The GOLF LIVE team looks at how Oakmont's fast greens and deep rough (along with unpredictable weather) could alter players' strategies this week at the U.S. Open.

OAKMONT, Pa. -- The caddie for U.S. Open qualifier Chris Crawford fell into a bunker and reportedly broke his ankle during a practice round at Oakmont on Tuesday.

Australian golf writer Benjamin Everill tweeted the news and detailed the events. World No. 1 Jason Day was playing with Crawford and was among those who helped the caddie out of the bunker.

According to Everill's tweets, the caddie slid down the grass of a slope and into the bunker with a "crack" sound. Oakmont has more than 200 bunkers, many with steep slopes.

Crawford recently graduated from Drexel and advanced to the Open by making this putt as sectional qualifying.
