TCC As A Tournament Host

Jim McCabe puts to rest rumors reported in Golfweek that The Country Club was looking to join a Deutsche Bank rotation with the TPC Boston (just typing that was difficult). He also reports that the 2013 U.S. Open at TCC is highly unlikely.

'We definitely want to do some sort of celebration of the 100th anniversary of Ouimet's victory, but it's highly unlikely it will be a US Open," said John Cornish, a longtime TCC member who is on the club's Tournament Policy Committee and was instrumental in pulling off the 1999 Ryder Cup, a spectacular event. ''An amateur event would be more appropriate. We've always been a big supporter of amateur golf."
