Chez Reavie, Gary Woodland and Aaron Watkins are just a handful of golfers representing the Kansas City area in some fashion in the 2012 U.S. Open. You can view all of their tee times and pairings right here.
But the more poignant angles of this tournament are documented by SB Nation's Brian Floyd at our dedicated golf hub page. He breaks down the difficulty of the course, who to watch and even the schedule. The most relevant of these points is the difficulty of The Olympic Club, where at a par of 70 -- 34 out and 36 in -- and a length of just over 7,100 yards, the course plays both long and narrow.
Fans will be interested to see the golf pairing of Tiger Woods, Bubba Watson and Phil Mickelson, each one a golfer who could be considered a favorite to win the tournament.
