One of the keys to winning the U.S. Open? Staying out of the rough, typically the most talked about thick stuff of the season.
Alas, it's a safe bet that every player in this week's field will wander a bit from Olympic Club's fairways and greens.
In the above video, we asked Titleist Brand Ambassadors Rory McIlroy and Kyle Stanley exactly what they're thinking as they stand over a rough-and-tough U.S. Open lie and how important it is to make the right decision with their next shot.
How do you win the U.S. Open?
Get up-and-down from inside 100 yards (almost every time), according to Titleist Brand Ambassador Geoff Ogilvy, the 2006 U.S. Open champ. (For Geoff's full answer, watch the above video.)
"Three, four, five times a day at worst you're going to have an up and down from 20 or 30 or 40 (yards) for par," he told Team Titleist recently. "I got almost all of those up and down for a whole week…"
In 2006, Geoff closed out the final round of the U.S. Open at Winged Foot with perhaps the best two pars of his life.
On the par-4 17th, he holed his Pro V1 golf ball from 30 yards from a nasty bit of rough. On 18, he got up-and-down from in front of the green (after a tough break), pitching his Pro V1 to 6 feet and making the putt.
"I think anybody who wins the U.S. Open, that's what they're doing," Geoff said.

It's been 14 years since the U.S. Open was last contested at Olympic Club in San Francisco.
That was 1998, before Luke Donald, Adam Scott or Geoff Ogilvy first played in a PGA Tour event. Before Rickie Fowler and Kyle Stanley had even teed it up in the American Junior Golf Association.
In other words, not many players in next week's field are used to racing around this Olympic track, especially not under U.S. Open conditions.
Which means it's time to hit the books. Team Titleist recently caught up with Luke, Adam, Geoff, Rickie and Kyle to talk about their U.S. Open prep and forming a game plan for the year's second major.
Check it out in the above video.

Titleist is the #1 ball for more players and more champions across the worldwide professional tours. In fact, to date in 2012, Titleist golf ball players have recorded 75 victories around the world, compared to 10 for the nearest competitor. Since the introduction of the Pro V1 in 2000, the golf ball franchise has been the golf ball of choice for more than 1,700 champions worldwide.
Below is a listing of tournaments won by Titleist golf ball players on the major worldwide professional tours in 2012.
Wins on the European Tour, the Champions Tour and the LPGA Tour for Lee Westwood, Tom Lehman and Shanshan Feng respectively showcased another multiple win week for Titleist golf ball loyalists around the globe this weekend.
Pro V1x loyalist Westwood blasted through the field at the Nordea Masters on Thursday (the second day of the tournament) with a blistering 8-under round of 64 and didn't relinquish his hold on the lead, running out winner by five shots on Saturday evening with a 19-under total of 269.
With four rounds in the 60's, it was Westwood's imperious iron-play, and the ability to trust in the performance of his Pro V1x golf ball that swept him away from the chasing pack at the Bro Hoff Slott course near Stockholm, Sweden.
The 39-year old from Worksop recorded his first ever European Tour win at this event in 1996 and captured the title again in 2000. This win marked Lee's 22nd European Tour victory and is a good vein of form to take to the US Open this week at the Olympic Club in San Francisco.
“It feels really special winning here another time – I’ve won it in three decades now which just shows how old we’re getting!" laughed Westwood.
Titleist was the overwhelming ball of choice at the Nordea Masters with 100 players, more than four times the nearest competitor.
It was a 1-2-3 finish for Titleist at the second senior major of the season, where Tom Lehman (Pro V1) withstood day-long rain and relentless challenges from fellow Pro V1 loyalists Bernhard Langer and Taiwan's Chien Soon Lu to win his second straight Regions Tradition. Lehman shot a final round 4-under 68 en route to a 14-under 274 victory total. The win also marks Lehman's sixth Champions Tour victory.
Titleist was the top golf ball choice of 53 players (70%) in the 76-player field, more than five times the nearest competitor with 9. Titleist was also the field favourite in the irons (19) and wedge (57) categories.
Elsewhere, Pro V1x loyalist Shanshan Feng became the first-ever player from mainland China to win an LPGA event, and she did it on a major stage. The 22-year-old Feng entered the final round of the Wegman's LPGA Championship three strokes off the lead, but climbed her way up the leaderboard, finishing with five birdies, no bogeys and a tournament-low round of 5-under 67.
The round was highlighted by a key birdie on the 17th hole that helped clinch a two-stroke margin of victory over four players, including fellow Pro V1x player Stacy Lewis.
Titleist was the top golf ball choice of 100 players (67%) in the 150-player field, more than six times the nearest competitor with 15.
The five-win weekend was completed by Pro V1x loyalist Lee Williams, who captured the Mexico Open for his first ever Nationwide Tour win, and fellow Pro V1x loyalist Andrew Roque, whose final round 9-under 61 secured the Times Colonist Island Savings Open on the Canadian Tour.
