The US Open returns to The Country Club….
The Country Club in Brookline, Mass. first hosted the U.S. Open in 1913, then again in 1963 and 1988. This year, the course was transformed from its previous years. According to Golf Digest, the routing used for the 2022 US Open features “a new sequencing of holes than the order played in the 1963 and 1988 tournaments.” It also includes “a hole not utilized in a major since 1913,” reports Golf Digest.
Though The Country Club presents some novelty this year, the course is indisputably historic – established in 1883 as the first country club in the United States. In relation to the US Open, it is one of the courses that helped bring golf to mainstream America after a no-name caddie won the 1913 US Open. Francis Ouimet is now a household name for transforming the sport stateside, and the venue still pays homage to the 20-year-old amateur who beat out professional golfers Harry Vardon and Ted Ray. Oh, and The Country Club is currently ranked 17th on Golf Digest’s list of America’s 100 Greatest Courses.
There are 156 registered players in the 2022 US Open but the names to know are: Scottie Scheffler, ranked as the number one golfer in the world and just won the Masters in April; Jon Rahm, who won the US Open last year at Torrey Pines; Rory McIlroy, who has been playing well and is trending for a long-overdue win; Justin Thomas, who just won the PGA championship; and Collin Morikawa, who took home the 2021 Open Championship title on his debut.
Please find below a link to the digital copy of the 25th Annual Breezy Bend US Open Pool form.
Please return your completed entry form(s) to Breezy Bend Head Golf Professional, Kris Ehnes prior to Thursday, June 16th at 8:00am. Good luck!
