US Open back at Torrey and in prime time
SAN DIEGO (AP) The USGA is starting to escape that reputation of an East Coast bias for the U.S. Open.
The return to Torrey Pines for the 121st U.S. Open means another prime-time show along the Eastern seaboard, and that's happening with greater frequency for the U.S. Open.
It wasn't until the 48th edition of this national championship that it ventured farther west than Colorado, with Ben Hogan winning at Riviera in Los Angeles in 1948. That was the start of eight U.S. Opens in California over a span of 50 years.
