We’re excited to kick off Fried Egg Golf’s 2024 U.S. Open coverage with this video breakdown of what makes Pinehurst No. 2 both such a special example of American golf architecture and an incredible major championship test.

Presented by our friends at Oars + Alps, this video features interviews with Bill Coore (architect for the course’s extensive restoration ahead of the 2014 U.S. Open) and 2006 U.S. Open champ Geoff Ogilvy.

Hopefully this gets you excited for what should be an amazing week of golf, while enhancing that week of viewing by offering some examples of what to look for from an architectural perspective.

Thanks for watching and stay tuned for plenty more Fried Egg Golf U.S. Open content over the coming fortnight.
