SOUTHAMPTON, N.Y. | Beep Beeeeeep! Traffic greets US Open golfers at Shinnecock
SOUTHAMPTON, N.Y. (AP) — The world’s best golfers are crossing their fingers and hoping for luck as they head to Shinnecock Hills for the U.S. Open this week.
It’s not the pin placements or green speeds they’re worried about.
Not the weather or the depth of the rough, either.
It’s the Long Island traffic that has snarled their commutes to the course, stranding them on two- and four-lane roads, staring at brake lights for hours on trips that would otherwise be as short as 15 minutes.
