The USGA released it’s 2018 schedule of events for this year and it includes some old and new locations. The PGA tour will play the US Open at the famed, Shinnecock hills in Southampton NY. This will be the 10th time the course has hosted the US Open. The course actually was the host of the second ever Open in 1896. In that even James Foulis defeated defending Champ Horace Rawlins by 3 strokes. Here is a quote from Stuart Francis, the USGA Championship Committee Chairman.
“The courses hosting in 2018 are excellent partners and we appreciate their efforts in preparing to conduct exemplary championships,” said Stuart Francis, USGA Championship Committee chairman. “The USGA has always honored the history of the game, so it is fitting that we are returning to two of the Association’s five founding clubs. Shinnecock Hills is the lone venue to host U.S. Opens in three centuries and Chicago Golf Club was founded by Charles Blair Macdonald, a major figure in early American golf.”
