Finally, Chambers Bay is on the clock. It feels longer than six years ago that the 2015 U.S. Open was awarded to the public golf course along Puget Sound that will be the host for the first championship played in the Pacific Northwest. But once Martin Kaymer was handed the championship trophy at Pinehurst No. 2 on Sunday, the focus of the USGA shifted to the opposite corner of the country. While Pinehurst, Oakmont, Pebble Beach and Olympic all have significant history with the USGA, Chambers Bay is an infant with no backstory on hosting major events outside of the 2010 U.S. Amateur.
