The storied history of Winged Foot dates back to 1929 with
Bobby Jones Winning The U.S. OPEN!
I also find the place quite special because in the Spring of 1972, when I was a Faculty Member at Columbia University, Teachers College, I had the privilege of playing bothEast & West Courses with Mr. Dick Metz, a distinguished NY Pro.
It was a wonderful day and at the 19th Hole Dick mentioned that I did not
"3-Putt" all day! -- I couldn't believe it and checked both Score Cards. Sure Enough "NO 3-PUTTS!"
Dick said that he never heard or ever witnessed this at Winged Foot.
I thanked him for noting this and gave my assurance he would never see performance like this from me
In short, the Greens at Winged Foot are
and I had the very best putting day of my life!
It is going to be a wonderful year thinking of the U.S OPEN coming in 2020!
