Pinehurst Continues Prep For Back-To-Back US Opens

PINEHURST, N.C. (AP) -- Pinehurst is getting ready to make history next year with the first double-dip of U.S. opens.

USGA Executive Director Mike Davis said Friday the resort's renowned No. 2 course will be set up roughly the same way for the men's and women's opens when they are held there on consecutive weeks in June 2014.

The course will be slightly longer for the men and the greens will be a touch softer a week later for the women.

Davis says No. 2 will play at roughly 7,500 yards for the men's event and approximately 6,800 yards for the women. Par will be 70 for both. He says the greens will be roughly 11 1/2 to 12 on the stimpmeter.
