SWXRightNow.com -- The conditions and layout of Chambers Bay Golf Course have been called out in recent days because of its hosting of the 115th U.S. Open, and while some have appreciated how hard the course is, others like the legend Gary Player have lambasted the course in a rant on television this morning.

Player's list of issues with Chambers Bay, which you can watch in the video player:

- "This has been the most unpleasant golf tournament I've seen in my life."

- "The man who designed this golf course must have had one leg shorter than the other."

- "It's actually a tragedy."

- "There have never been so many people that missed the cut that are so happy to go home."

- "This is not indigenous to American golf."

Player also wanted to hook up the broadcasters to make them say what they really think about the course and called Chambers Bay a ridiculous public course to play for average golfers.

All-in-all, players is saying what everyone is thinking about the U.S. Open. And he can get away with it. He's Gary Player, he won the 1965 U.S. Open and he can say and do what he wants.
