DESCRIPTION: It’s been said that you can land a jumbo on the fairways without dislodging a pine cone, but it’s one of the toughest courses from 50 yards in, with its upturned-bowl greens. Due to host the mens’ and womens’ US Opens in consecutive weeks in 2014, so Ben Crenshaw and Bill Coore are in for a renovation.
