The Olympic Club aiming for a sixth Open as soon as ’22

The Olympic Games symbolize its five participating continents with a quintet of rings. The Olympic Club in San Francisco may soon be symbolized by hosting six U.S. Opens.

The San Francisco club is preparing to write the U.S. Golf Association to invite it to bring the Open back as soon as 2022, according to the San Francisco Chronicle.



"I think it will happen soon," said Stephen Meeker, the club's general chairman for the Open. "Mike said they'd come back at the drop of a hat. He said it was one of the best Opens they've had in the last 20 years."

Oakmont CC has hosted the most U.S. Opens, with eight. New Jersey-based Baltusrol is second with seven, but now is a member of the PGA Championship rotation.

The U.S. Open is booked through 2019, when Pebble Beach will celebrate its centennial with the national championship. It has otherwise been slated by the governing body for an Open every 10 years.
