"(AP) — Facts and figures for the 116th U.S. Open golf championship: Oakmont was designed in 1903 by Henry C. Fownes, a steel magnate and accomplished amateur golfer. The course is famous for its 'Church Pew' bunkers between the third and fourth fairways, for its notoriously fast greens and for being one of the hardest golf courses in America. Spieth two-putted for birdie on the 18th hole at Chambers Bay to win by one shot over Dustin Johnson, who three-putted for par from 12 feet on the final hole. Spieth joined Arnold Palmer, Jack Nicklaus and Tiger Woods as the only players to win the Masters and U.S. Open in the same season since 1960. Angel Cabrera closed with a 69 for a one-shot victory over Tiger Woods and Jim Furyk. 1935), Ben Hogan (1953), Jack Nicklaus (1962), Johnny Miller (1973), Larry Nelson (1983), Ernie Els (1994), Angel Cabrera (2007.", www.chron.com

The USGA could move the tee forward for one weekend round and tempt players to try to reach the green. The second shot with a short iron is uphill, making it a blind approach to a green that slopes gently away from the fairway. The fairway narrows about 160 yards from the green, and the approach shot is to a green that is well below the fairway. Accuracy is key on the approach, for there are substantial contours and ridges that will funnel misplaced shots away from the hole. The tee shot is downhill to a narrow landing area, and the fairway slopes from right to left. The tee shot is uphill toward the clubhouse, so the landing area can't be seen from the tee. The longest hole on the course, the power hitters might have a chance to reach in two, but keeping it in the fairway is difficult because the ball rolls out.
