I know that there was a number of trees removed from the course for the last US Open played at Torrey Pines but this year it looks like even more were removed so that there are only a handful of trees (if that many) on most of the holes on the course. Now, I didn't follow the tournament at Torrey much the last couple of years but the amount of trees on the course now seems like a lot less than in the last 4-5 years. I know that the USGA has convinced the members and owners of a number of courses where USGA events have been played in the last decade to remove large amounts of trees (Oakmont, Inverness, LACC and Winged Foot to name a few) - but isn't the Torrey Pine a tree with a very limited geographical area of residence in the La Jolla area and is there any impact on that species when removing so many of those trees from the two TP courses?

I was told when they redid the North course some trees were “diseased” and others were removed to open up the view of the ocean? I see they have now removed some trees on the South course as well. Not a fan. Aim points gone, depth perception altered, the cozy feeling trees impart framing a hole/a green vanished. When playing the approach to the (now) 13th hole on the North it looks and feels like I am on a links course on some barren wasteland not a beautiful, plush Torrey Pines. Some of those old courses were designed without trees, I like Torrey better with trees.

Yes I'd agree some trees are removed for what ever reason at Torrey than I can recall as well. Storm damaged trees must go. I know some on the 18th were downed a few years ago. The aerials of that hole looked different.

The rough was the feature that surprised me the most. That stuff was nasty and will only get worse/better? for the June US Open.

Captain America was able to conquer it with or without controversial penalties. If you win by 5 what's the worry?
