At first glance that Rory McIlroy photo above is just a photo of Rory McIlroy wearing a Nike shirt working on his short game at Pinehurst No. 2.
But look directly behind him. McIlroy is blotting out the "G" in "USGA" so that it just says "USA" -- that's a pretty cool look for our nation's open championship.
Also, here's Kevin Streelman hitting out of the sand (this should give you a better idea of the terrain golfers will have to navigate this week).
And this one of Justin Thomas gives a good idea of just how big the US Open stage is.
