2015 US Open: Tiger Woods keeps trying to solve Chambers Bay

Tiger Woods was one of the few golfers playing in the US Open this week who took Mike Davis seriously last month when Davis said anyone who wanted to contend would need multiple practice rounds.

Woods made his way up to the site of the 115th US Open before the Memorial two weeks ago.  He continued prep in chase of his fourth national championship and 15th overall major on Sunday evening and then again on Monday with Jason Day and Dustin Johnson.

Then he spoke to ESPN as if he was discussing his iPhone 6.

"There's no way you can play this course blind,'' Woods said. "There is so much information to download. You don't have any chance if you haven't seen this place.''

He also talked to USA Today about how diverse the course is depending on what the wind is doing and where the tee boxes are.

"You see more options," Woods said. "And this is a different wind so that changes all your numbers. You just have to take in as much as you can. Every hole seems like it is uphill. Feels like we played 18 today."

Can Big Cat figure out the crazy course by Thursday when the tournament starts? I doubt it, but it will be fascinating to see who can. Or who will come Sunday.
