The best golfers in the world have spent a lot of time at Oakmont Country Club over the last few days as they prepare for next week's U.S. Open. Several players have posted photos and videos of the tough conditions at the always-challenging Oakmont, and we'll use Graeme McDowell's posts as our most recent example of just how hard it might be.

Check out the thickness of the rough around the green on McDowell's shot below. You can't even see the ball or the club head! He says it will be the key shot of the week.

Also, how fast are the greens and some of the slopes on the fairways? McDowell posted a video showing us that, too. You can watch both videos below. It should be a fun, and interesting, week at Oakmont.


Back to the traditional US Open set up here at Oakmont.
