Done. If anyone wants Rickie Fowler, you have 2 hours to claim him.

Poulter appears to not actually be in the field so pick a replacement quickly! I guess the fairest thing is you can pick anyone who hasn't teed off.

There's a question below the featured coverage window that asks, "On the first tee at the US Open, I would ________"

A. Stripe a drive down the middle.
B. Play it safe with an iron.
C. Be lucky to even make contact with the ball.

We can safely rule out "B" because it's 275 to even reach the fairway on hole 1 lol

Josh Lyman, or any other tech goon,

I'm at work trying to stream coverage on my laptop. Personal laptop, connected to work wifi. Website will load but video won't play. There's no error message; it's just a black screen. Tried Chrome and Edge.

However, my personal phone connected to the same work wifi will play it in browser (Chrome). What gives? How do I remedy this?

Could be something crazy like a port being blocked, but the logical first guess would be some kind of Adblocker.

Try an Incognito window.

Incognito mode didn't work, neither did pausing my Adblocker.

For what it's worth, can see the scroll bar below the video for a split second before the entire viewing window goes black.

That sounds like an codec issue. Is this the link you're trying? http://www.usopen.com/watch/live/pl...#!5472115728001

You know how Windows Firewall will pop up a warning when you launch a new program about allowing it internet access with 2 checkboxes, one for private (home) and one for public (work, etc.)? Because you're at work, that could be causing issues.

I guess you could always try Firefox.

Sounds like port blocking on the firewall. Use your phone if you can, that's what I have to do.

And we haven't even got to Buck yet. Fox is terrible. But, the flight track/trackman stuff on every hole is great for a course like this.

Brad Faxon is excellent for player insight, but that's almost a pre-requisite for any player who steps into the booth.
