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.
Golf tips are like aspirin. One may do you good, but if you swallow the whole bottle you will be lucky to survive.
