first_imgBut, as you can see, the weather spiked on the Sunday before to 2019 U.S. Open. It was 73 and 89 degrees, then jumped to a high of 95 and 90 degrees on the Monday and Tuesday of Open week. PEBBLE BEACH, Calif. — I’m not going to lie: I like my U.S. Opens tough. High heat, long rough, hard greens, complaining. I love it all.
