Watch How Crazy The Greens At Chambers Bay Are Rolling

US Open 2015: Mike Davis Talks Chambers Bay
During the Day 1 recap of Live at the U.S. Open, USGA President Mike Davis talks about Chambers Bay and the start of the 2015 U.S. Open with hosts Ryan Asselta and Jeff Ritter.

The greens at Chambers Bay are bumpy. 

Be it the type of grass or the lack of rain, they're bumpy. And many of the players don't like it. 

Colin Montgomerie aired his grievances about the greens after his 1-under first round.

"The greens themselves, that is the poorest part of this," he said. "I don’t want to be critical in any way, because of everything that has been done here. But the greens are very, very poor. The quality of the surface of the greens is extremely poor. That is going to take away the consistency of the putts. The 10-footers that you see people hole all the time, that won’t be happening this week. The greens are extremely poor. A course of this demanding nature had to be in perfect condition and unfortunately it is not."

That might be how Darren Clarke felt after this putt from the opening round:



Players would be better off taking the Jason Day approach and just hole their pitch shots.
