For all the talk at the U.S. Open about the overall overpowering of the modern golfer on a classic course, it was Canadian Taylor Pendrith who not only hung with the best of them, but out-popped them, too.
“I think being long on any golf course is an advantage, and I think the game has just changed,” said Pendrith after a tournament-closing 70. “A lot of guys are hitting it further, technology is better and people are bigger and stronger.”
In his major championship debut Pendrith finished at 10-over. His T-23 was the best finish by a Canadian at the U.S. Open since David Hearn’s T-21 in 2013. Pendrith, prior to this week, had played only two PGA Tour events as a professional.
