2022 U.S. Open to Country Club: Report
By Torleif Sorenson on 4/30/15
According to Michael Whitmer of the Boston Globe, The United States Golf Association has accepted an invitation by The Country Club to host the 2022 U.S. Open Championship. If all sides agreen, this will make the fourth time the historic Brookline, Massachusetts club will have hosted America's national championship.
Whitmer reports that the Brookline Board of Selectmen voted to "execute a letter of intent" with the USGA. Brookline town administrator Mel Kleckner has until this coming October 31 to negotiate a formal agreement.
Of course, the USGA has not formally announced the decision, but their director of public relations, Janeed Driscoll, said planning is headed in that direction:
"We can confirm that we have been in discussions with them related to a future U.S. Open Championship. I can also tell you that we're not quite there yet.In his article, Whitmer noted that a tremendous amount of logistical planning and agreements need to happen between several organizations. Among other things, Robert T. Lynch Municipal Golf Course and Larz Anderson Park will have be taken over for temporary spectator parking, with a large fleet of buses transporting ticketholders to the club.
Whitmer also noted that USGA Executive Director Mike Davis was on-board with the idea of The Country Club hosting another U.S. Open. In his article Whitmer recounted Davis's comments moments after the 2013 U.S. Amateur Championship:
"There is zero doubt this golf course is good enough for an Open — zero. If anybody thinks this golf course isn't good enough, they don't know what they're talking about. It's easily good enough.The Country Club has an extremely longstanding relationship with the USGA; the club was one of five involved in the founding of the USGA in 1894. Six TCC members have served as president of the USGA, and the club has hosted 16 different USGA national championships — most recently, the 2013 U.S. Amateur Championship, won by the talented young Englishman Matthew Fitzpatrick.
Three U.S. Opens have been held at The Country Club:
Of course, 1999 saw "The Battle of Brookline" in which the United States Ryder Cup team captained by Ben Crenshaw roared back from a 10-6 deficit to capture the Cup, 14½ - 13½.

The heck with that. Yet another Championship played on a course on which 99.9999% of us will never have the opportunity to tee it up. The tournament is "Open" and should be played somewhere that is also "open".
