US Open 2019 Here are the next 7 US Open venues following

first_imgAfter recent visits to Erin Hills and Chambers Bay, there were some who believed the USGA was losing its classic-venue identity. But if you look ahead to the U.S. Open’s post-Pebble future, it’s clear that iconic, formidable venues abound. Check out the sites we have to look forward to in the next seven years.2020: Winged Foot Golf Club (West Course), Mamaroneck, N.Y.Of the five U.S. Opens contested at Winged Foot, three have produced a winner who finished over par. Perhaps the most notorious of those instances came in 1974, an event that would be known, aptly, as “The Massacre.” That year, Hale Irwin prevailed in one of the most difficult tests in the sport’s history, winning the tournament at seven over par. The USGA has been widely criticized for their handling of course setups in recent years, so it’s unlikely there will be comparable bloodshed when the U.S. Open comes back to Mamaroneck. But Winged Foot will certainly provide a test that’s more than up to snuff for the nation’s championship.John Bodenhamer speaks to the media on Wednesday at Pebble Beach.NewsU.S. Open 2019: USGA acknowledges it’s ‘critical’ they get this U.S. Open right2021: Torrey Pines Golf Course (South Course), San Diego, Calif.The mere mention of “Torrey Pines” and “U.S. Open” conjure images of Tiger Woods fist-pumping in 2008, having overcome a torn ACL to claim his third U.S. Open. Woods made a 12-foot birdie putt on the 72nd hole to force an 18-hole playoff with Rocco Mediate, which Woods would win the the next day. It’s a performance that will live on in golf lore in perpetuity. In 2021, the U.S. Open returns to San Diego for an encore, and let’s just say 2008 will be a tough act to follow.2022: The Country Club, Brookline, Mass.The U.S. Open will return to Brookline, Mass. for the first time in 34 years in 2022. The last time the championship was staged there, Curtis Strange edged out Nick Faldo in a playoff. The Country Club is the oldest country club in the United States, formed in January of 1882. The course has held tournaments for over a century, ranging from men’s and women’s amateur events to major championships. Perhaps most famously, it hosted the 1999 Ryder Cup, which saw the United States narrowly prevail over the Europeans, 14.5 – 13.5, after trailing 10-6 heading into Sunday’s singles session. It remains one of the shining moments in United States golfing history.2023: The Los Angeles Country Club (North Course), Los Angeles, Calif.The U.S. Open will make its inaugural trip to the Los Angeles Country Club in 2023 on the heels of a wildly successful Walker Cup in 2017. The year 2023 will mark 75 years since the last U.S. Open in Los Angeles — a tournament Ben Hogan won at Riviera Country Club. The championship will be contested on the North Course’s newly-restored 7,200-yard layout.last_img read more
