I think the only changes to the course since the 2010 U.S. Open have been the new greens on 14 and 17. I remember watching 17 on Sunday in 2010 and almost no one hit the green so that should make the hole more fair.
Jerry -The US Amateur will be held at Pebble Beach next month (Aug. 13-19). My guess is the course set-up for that event will be pretty similar to next year's US Open, less than grandstands, hospitality pavilions, etc.DT
So are we really going to see something significantly more challenging than what we see each year during the AT&T? Perhaps the question is whether they should use a course for the US Open which is regularly used for the PGA Tour? PB is such a beautiful and iconic venue so the public is happy just viewing the course. But does the same hold true for Torrey Pines which has great views but architecturally is not overly interesting however it has the logistics available so that it can host the event plus it is on the west coast.
