Great finish to an Open. Nobody finishes under par, which you could say is par for the US Open.
Next year the wicker baskets of Merion.
It was on the 11th hole where Bobby Jones played his last competitive hole of golf in winning the US Amateur in 1930 and completing the Grand Slam.
20 years later, a year after suffering a near fatal car accident, Ben Hogan made his comeback official by winning the Open in a playoff.
Other Open champions at Merion were Olin Dutra in 1934, Lee Trevino in 1971, and David Graham in 1981.
It's been 32 years since the US Open has been held at the old historic course off the Main line of Philadelphia. It's about time.
Just an explanation of the Wicker basket comment. The "flag" sticks on the golf course-193px-MerionGolfClubLogoLoRes.jpg
