History of U.S. Open

Here is the first of five covers for the U. S. Open Special sections that ran in the days preceding the start of the tournament. This section covered the history behind the Open with comparisons of what is different today - even showing a close-up photo of a 5-iron from the 1920's versus what would be used today. I had to borrow the modern day iron myself from a local store - The Golf Mart. Thank goodness they were cool about it - they were my third try. Here is the online version of the cover story.

Very interesting - especially since they had such an exciting finish!
