This year’s U.S. Open will be the third contested on Pinehurst No. 2 and the first since 2005. The U.S. Women’s Open has been played three times at nearby Pine Needles Lodge and Golf Club in Southern Pines, most recently in 2007.

Pinehurst No. 2 has hosted six USGA championships, including two U.S. Opens. In 2005, Michael Campbell became the first New Zealander to win the U.S. Open with a two-stroke victory over Tiger Woods. The 1999 U.S. Open at Pinehurst provided one of the most dramatic finishes in golf history when Payne Stewart, who was recently announced as the 2014 Bob Jones Award recipient, sank an 18-foot par putt on the 72nd hole to edge Phil Mickelson by one stroke. Pinehurst also hosted the 1962 U.S. Amateur, won by Labron Harris Jr.; the 1989 U.S. Women’s Amateur, won by Vicki Goetze; the 1994 U.S. Senior Open, won by Simon Hobday; and the 2008 U.S. Amateur, won by Danny Lee.
