2005 really spoiled us in terms of unique, exciting, and must-see courses hosting major events. Still, there's Newport, Winged Foot and Prairie Dunes. Thank God the USGA Executive Committee still picks courses they want to play the day after.
I know, that doesn't explain going to Rees-stored Torrey Pines. But sometimes you have to pay the bills.
