You know the USGA has learned from the Shinnecock Hills fiasco of 2004. With the weather report for the weekend calling for 15-20 mph winds and gusts up to 26 mph, USGA officials will selectively water the greens and fairways to make sure the turf at Winged Foot doesn't dry out. They'll also move planned hole locations around if the wind makes some exposed spots on the greens too precarious.
Do not get into the habit of pointing out the peculiarly salient blade of grass which you imagine to have been the cause of your failing to hole your putt. You may sometimes find your adversary who has successfully holed his, irritatingly short-sighted on these occasions. Moreover, the opinion of a man who has just missed his putt, about the state of the green, is usually accepted with some reserve.
