4 Of The Best US Open Stories in 100 Years!

I love these amazing stories from US Open tournaments that have taken place over the last 100 years.

I think the most astounding event happened 25 years ago, in 1990.

Hale Irwin was given a special exemption to play. He hadn't won in five years on the PGA Tour, but he had won the US Open in 1979.

What did Irwin do with his special invite?

Take a guess!

17 Rules of Golf that every golfer should know. #4 is the most abused!

As a golf instructor, I help people improve their golf.  One of the sessions I hold at my club once in a while is a rules seminar.  In order to play good golf and score well, you need to know some basic rules for situations that you will come across fairly regularly.  If you don't know the rules you will get penalized and this will add strokes to your score.  How many times do we see on the PGA and LPGA Tours, golfers who make an innocent mistake that costs them dearly.  Dustin Johnson in . . .
