The Country Club at Brookline to host 2022 U.S. Open



We've got a good feeling about this.

The Country  Club in Brookline, Mass., is set to host the 2022 U.S. Open, according to the Boston Globe. An announcement is pending the forging of a formal agreement between the club, via its Board of Selectmen, with the USGA. Both sides have already done the dance of inviting and accepting the opportunity to bring the U.S. Open back to the club for the fourth time.

Back in 1913, Francis Ouimet won the U.S. Open at The Country Club in the championship's defining moment. Curtis Strange won his first of back-to-back Opens there in 1988. Matt Fitzpatrick won the U.S. Amateur there in 2013 -- the championship whose difficult scoring confirmed modern technology had not passed the club by and made it a relevant option to host the Open again.

And, of course, the U.S. staged a record comeback there on the final day of the 1999 Ryder Cup.
