U.S. Open 2012: Bubba Watson Expecting High Scores At Olympic Club

Former University of Georgia golfer and Masters champion Bubba Watson isn't expecting any record-breaking scores at this weekend's U.S. Open.

The 112th U.S. Open will take place at The Olympic Club in San Francisco. The course last held the U.S. Open in 1998, when Lee Janzen won with a score at even par. Modifications have since made it even tougher. Although Watson has made his share of wild shots, even he isn't excited about the course. From the Chicago Tribune:

"On every hole, there's something around the corner. Even the shortest hole is tough, and the longest hole is tough," said the American. "There's something on every hole that can get you. It makes it very difficult."

"Do I like it? I'll tell you in a few days," he said. "As of right now I don't like it. There's an 80 lurking. After four days of golf if there's not an 80, then I like it all right."
