Pinehurst No. 2 Awarded 2014 U.S. Open

Pinehurst's Number Two course has received a nice present during the season-long celebration of its 100th birthday.

The course with the famed turtleback greens has been awarded the
2014 U-S Open.

It's the third time Pinehurst will host the national championship.

The 1999 and 2005 Opens also were at Pinehurst, as were the 1951 Ryder Cup, the 1994 U-S Senior Open and the Tour Championship in
1991 and '92.

The U-S Amateur was played at Pinehurst in 1962, and returns next year.

Pinehurst C-E-O Robert Dedman Junior says Pinehurst Number Two
continues to be a test for golfers.

Though the course is almost 15-hundred yards longer than when it
opened in 1907, it remains true to designer Donald Ross' original vision and is one of the most celebrated in the country.
