By Community | January 28, 2013
Winged Foot will again host the US Open after the United States Golf Association (USGA) announced they will host the event in 2020.
The New York venue will host the major for the first time since 2006, when Geoff Ogilvy lifted the title after one of the most infamous final days in the tournament’s history.
“We’re thrilled to bring the US Open back to this outstanding club,” said USGA vice president Thomas J O’Toole Jr.
“Winged Foot offers a spectacular setting in a dynamic market and has justifiably earned its reputation as one of the premier US Open venues in the nation.”
The course, located 25 miles north of New York City in Westchester County, last hosted the U.S. Open in 2006 when Australian Geoff Ogilvy won.
