Welcome to the party Bryson DeChambeau and Patrick Reed. Further proof that Winged Foot has no interest whatsoever in reputation comes with the addendum that if two of the players jousting for US Open glory were afforded a final 36 holes in front of New York crowds, the past would feature prominently.
