This week it’s finally upon us golf nuts the US Open is underway!
This is the 4th time the Congressional Country Club golf course has hosted a major championship. It’s been a few years and had some serious updates have made the course ready and in tip top shape. The last time the US Open was played on this course was in 1997 and Ernie El’s found his second major win. Ideally located just outside of the national capital in Maryland it’s the perfect place for one of this year’s major golf tournaments.
