Torrey Pines is poised to again host the U.S. Open.

According to a Golf Channel report, the U.S. Golf Association has extended an invitation to the San Diego-area course to host the National Open 13 years after Tiger Woods outlasted Rocco Mediate on the 19th hole of a playoff for his 14th, and so far last, major.

The San Diego City Council will have to vote to accept the invitation, with a formal announcement to follow. The 36-hole facility already hosts the annual Farmers Insurance Open on the PGA Tour. The South course would host the U.S. Open again in '21, with the North course used to handle other logistics of the championship. Phil Mickelson is renovating the course.

The USGA has announced U.S. Open sites through 2020:

  • 2014 — Pinehurst No. 2
  • 2015 — Chambers Bay
  • 2016 — Oakmont
  • 2017 — Erin Hills
  • 2018 — Shinnecock Hills
  • 2019 — Pebble Beach
  • 2020 — Winged Foot

A Torrey Pines '21 Open would continue the trend of holding an Open on the East Coast of the country, then moving west of the Mississippi River.

What courses will host the U.S. Open beyond 2021? We speculate here.
