Chambers Bay, friends, it's going to be a real good time. Well, according to some, it's going to be a real bad time. But it's going to be lively either way.

Peter Uihlein, who won the 2010 US Amateur at Chambers, described it the same way Phil Mickelson did recently. 

“The first time you play it, it's like St. Andrews,” Mickelson told PGATour.com. “You don't know where to go. … I can see why the first impression isn't as favorable for some. But I think the more you play it, the more you like it.”

“Funny, but I hear people say you have to have an open mind, because it’s so different,” added Uihlein to Golfweek. “That leads people to think it is tricked-up, but if you go to the Old Course, how many times will shots you think are good be rejected?"

“The (par 3) 15th, I’ll never forget,” Uihlein told Golfweek. “One day I had to rip a 2-iron. The next day, I hit wedge.”

Mike Davis is already shaking with glee.
