Once a year, when the U.S. Open is played, the United States Golf Association picks a course and then modifies it wickedly so that even the world' s best golfers often scramble to avoid triple-bogeys.
Now Golf Digest writer John Strege reveals how over the past fifty years the USGA has venomously transformed already difficult courses into "monsters." With relish, he tells what happened to the pros -- Nicklaus, Palmer, Player, Woods, Snead, Hogan, among others -- who hooked shots into the rough, missed putts and routinely finished over par in this grueling annual competition.
