Baltusrol...Odd NY Course Out?

"It would be silly of us to remove a course like Baltusrol from future consideration for USGA championships, including the U.S. Open. And we haven't," David Fay wrote in a letter to the club he's a member at.

"On the other hand, the rest of the country might look at the greater N.Y. metro area having four different courses in the so-called (and definitely unofficial) de facto U.S. Open rota and howl about geographic bias."

Translation: you're fourth in line behind Winged Foot, Shinnecock and Bethpage. Three's a crowd.
