Fun Fact: Ben Hogan described the one shot 10th hole as “a 3 iron into some guys bedroom window”.

All morning the skies looked ominous and rain was falling sporadically, but we remained optimistic that we would get the round in. Pulling into Winged Foot is a great feeling for any golfer. After driving through the gates and down a tree lined drive you see what must be the most beautiful clubhouse in all of golf. The magnificent stone structure with its slate roof lets you know that you are somewhere special and makes a… More >
