Wisconsin’s Jordan Niebrugge (nee brew ge) is the first to tee off as the 117th U-S Open golf tournament begins at Erin Hills. The Mequon native has a 6:45 tee time, and the state’s only other golfer in the field — Steve Stricker of Madison — has one of the day’s final starts at 2:20. This is Wisconsin’s first U-S Open, and a couple of issues arose during three days of practice rounds in the town of Erin near Hartford in Washington County. The U-S-G-A ordered an emergency cut of some long fescue rough along four holes, after some golfers complained that rain and high winds made part of the rough virtually impossible to hit a ball from. The rains interrupted play the past two days, and the current forecast has a 40-percent chance of rain during Friday’s second round — and a 50-percent rain chance during Saturday’s third round.
