The players and caddies at this week's US Open have all had their say on the traditional Merion Golf Club wicker basket in favour of the normal golf flag.

One player who will care to see the back of the wicker is Lee Westwood after an incredibly poor break saw him turn a simple par save into a double-bogey six.

More like wicked basket, if you ask me...
