Cherry Hills (PC)
For one of the most famous major championship venues in the country, we travel to the Rocky Mountains and the Cherry Hills CC. Cherry Hills has twice been the host of the PGA Championship. First in 1941 when Vic Ghezzi beat Byron Nelson 1 up in a 36-hole final back in the old match play days. The second was in 1958 when Hubert Green bested Lee Trevino by 2 strokes. The 1990 U.S. Amateur was won by some guy named Mickelson. The 1993 U.S. Senior Open was captured that Nicklaus fellow. And the 2005 U.S. Womenâ€™s Open was taken by little known Birdie Kim. The course has had the pleasure of hosting three U.S. Opens. In 1938 Ralph Guldahl won by 6 strokes. The 1960 Open was a classic and marked the birth of Arnieâ€™s Army. Four strokes back of the amber, Jack Nicklaus, Palmer started his round by famously driving the green of the 346 yard first hole. He went on to shoot 65 and win by 2. Cherry Hills returned to the PGA when it hosted the 2014 BMW Championship as the next to last stop for the Fedex Crown. As a side note, when Ghezzi won the 1941 PGA, the winner’s share was $1,000 even. When Billy Horschel took the BMW crown his take was $1,440,000. It was once one of the longest courses that the pros played, but several others have caught up to it a bit lately. The ASG version plays to a par 70, 7,352 yards. We’ve made it bit easier for you by introducing the effects of altitude on your ball flight. Have fun.
