2020 U.S. Open to Winged Foot
By Torleif Sorenson on 1/28/13
The golfing press has yet to quote Phil Mickelson's reaction, but the USGA today announced that the 2020 U.S. Open Championship will be held at Winged Foot Golf Club in Mamaroneck, New York. This will represent the sixth time the club has hosted the men's Open; they have also hosted the Women's Open twice (1957 and 1972), the men's U.S. Amateur twice (1940 and 2004), a U.S. Senior Open (1980), and the 1997 PGA Championship.
The club is perhaps best-known for hosting two particular U.S. Opens, the "Massacre at Winged Foot" in 1974, when Hale Irwin survived the tournament with the least amount of damage at +7, and the 2006 Open, in which Phil Mickelson double-bogeyed the 72nd hole to hand the championship to Geoff Ogilvy.
In addition to your gut reactions, if any of you have had the rare privilege of playing at Winged Foot, please tell us about it below!

The General Manager at Southern Hills was disappointed they didn't get the nod. Hopefully they can get the Championship in either '21 or '22.
