Friday, June 5, 2009
OAKMONT, Pa. — The U.S. Open will return to Oakmont Country Club in suburban Pittsburgh in 2016, nine years after the national championship was last played there.
The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reported on its Web site Friday that the U.S. Open will make its ninth trip to Oakmont, which waited 13 years between 1994 and 2007 to play host to its most recent national championship. The 2007 tournament was won by Angel Cabrera.
Oakmont also was the U.S. Open site in 1927, 1935, 1953, 1962, 1973 and 1983.
The USGA is expected to make the official announcement during the U.S. Open at Bethpage Black in Farmingdale, N.Y., later this month, the newspaper reported.
