U.S. Open soundbites: JT says fans of bizarre will love Winged Foot

The interview area was busy Tuesday at Winged Foot, as several of the biggest names in golf, from Tiger Woods to Rory McIlroy to Justin Thomas, took to the podium to field questions about the upcoming 120th U.S. Open.

Among the topics was how tough Winged Foot will play this week in its first U.S. Open since 2006.

"It is probably the hardest golf course I've ever played," said Justin Thomas. "... But that being said, I'm not going into it scared. I can't play tentative. I can't only try to make pars. If I have a scoring club, I need to try to make a birdie.
