But if you saw the shots he made yesterday to save par/bogey in several instances, you'd understand. Dude has the best short game in golf, might as well take advantage.
If the guy would hit the fairway with that 11* 3-wood, it wouldn't be an issue. Finesse around the greens is more important than distance off the tee in a US Open, IMO.
Hitting fairways is Phil's problem.
