It's hard to fathom how the back-to-back U.S. Open(s) could have gone much better.
Two champions who have been either the best or almost the best player in the world this year.
A golf course that held up beautifully for two weeks and made for fascinating viewing.
And the USGA staff's outstanding effort to create a qualify fan experience at Pinehurst.
Still, there was a sense in Pinehurst and in social media comments that the second week fell a little flat in spite of Michelle Wie's compelling victory.
So the first natural question: should the USGA hold back-to-back U.S. Opens again?
