Congrats to the NCGA for rallying to retain the Hanna-Wehrman Cup for the 10th straight year, and to the NCPGA Seniors for capturing their fourth straight Staedler-Jetter Cup!
Poppy Hills continued to make fans out of the Champions Tour players, from Colin Montgomerie to Tom Watson and John Cook.
Tom Watson had a birdie putt at the last to shoot his age, but was ecstatic to shoot 4-under 66 at a Del Paso course that he said has the toughest Open rough he’s ever seen.
This week’s U.S. Senior Open in Sacramento won’t look anything like what we just saw at Chambers Bay. But it nearly did.
This year’s U.S. Open at Chambers Bay will be unlike any ever held. It’s the first U.S. Open in the Pacific Northwest, the first on all fescue grass, the first with holes that will oscillate between a par 4 and a par 5 on any given day, and the first with uneven tee boxes. See what Poppy Hills architect Robert Trent Jones Jr. has to say about his Chambers Bay creation.
