There were complaints from people who didn’t understand, and that’s OK. There are always going to be people who can’t see the forest for the trees.
Because what Mike Davis and the USGA did by having back-to-back U.S. Opens at a revamped Pinehurst No. 2 was the execution of the best idea they’ve had in . . . well, maybe since choosing Bethpage Black as a U.S. Open site . . . or maybe ever. Honestly, it sounds like hyperbole, but in 30 years from now, this single event might very well be considered the watershed moment (no pun intended; keep reading . . .) for the governing body of the sport.
