The U.S. Open is returning to Winged Foot, the New York club with a history of clutch moments and one unforgettable collapse. The U.S. Golf Association will announce Monday that the West Course at Winged Foot will host the 2020 U.S. Open. Only two other courses -- Oakmont and Baltusrol -- will have held the national championship more times. "Winged Foot offers a spectacular setting in a dynamic market, and has justifiably earned its reputation as one of the premier U.S. Open venues in the nation," said Thomas OToole Jr., vice-president of the USGA and head of its championship committee. "And it joins an impressive lineup of future U.S. Open Championship locations that players and fans alike can eagerly anticipate." Winged Foot was designed by A.W. Tillinghast in 1923 and hosted its first U.S. Open six years later, when amateur Bobby Jones delivered one of the biggest shots in championship history with a 12-foot putt on the final hole to force a 36-hole playoff. He won the next day by 23 shots over Al Espinosa. The most recent trip to Winged Foot was memorable for all the wrong reasons -- not for Geoff Ogilvy winning with a superb up-and-down from below the 18th green, but for Phil Mickelson blowing his best chance ever to win the U.S. Open. Mickelson had a one-shot lead when his drive bounced off corporate tents to the left of the 18th fairway. He went for the green and his 3-iron struck a tree and dropped straight down, his next shot plugged in a bunker and he make double bogey to lose by one. "I am such an idiot," he famously said that day. Mickelson referenced that moment just five days ago when discussing his mistake to go public with being unhappy about how much he days in taxes. Winged Foot also is where former USGA President Sandy Tatum offered the defining comment for the U.S. Open. "Our intention is not to embarrass the greatest players in the world, but to identify them," he said in 1974, when Hale Irwin won at 7-over 287. Billy Casper won his first U.S. Open at Winged Foot in 1959. Fuzzy Zoeller won in 1984 in a playoff over Greg Norman, who holed a long putt across the 18th green for par. Zoeller, thinking the Shark had made birdie, jokingly waved a white towel. It only got Norman into a Monday playoff, and the next day, Zoeller won so handily that Norman waved a white towel walking up the final fairway. Winged Foot doesnt have a history of dull moments. The Westchester course is known for the severe slopes on the greens and deep bunkers and doglegs along the tree-lined fairways. USGA executive director Mike Davis was in charge of setting up the Open for the first time at Winged Foot in 2006. He referred to Winged Foot as a "quintessential U.S. Open golf course." "Winged Foot offers the best players in the world a spectacular test of golf and delivers to spirited New York golf fans one of the most exciting venues in the game," he said. The U.S. Open returns this year to Merion, and then will go to Pinehurst No. 2 (2014), Chambers Bay (2015), Oakmont (2016), Erin Hills (2017), Shinnecock Hills (2018), Pebble Beach (2019) and then Winged Foot. "I think its great," Ogilvy said about the return to Winged Foot. "Im excited for the club. Its one of the best clubs in America for that sort of thing. Its a true golf club in the original sense. They love playing golf. The courses are super busy. You meet Winged Foot members everywhere and they cant say enough about it. And its got such a great history, really."

The Oilers fan base was expecting the teams first playoff berth since the 2005-2006 season while the Flames were entering a franchise rebuild after trading cornerstone Jarome Iginla at the trade deadline the previous season and losing long-time starting goaltender Miikka Kiprusoff to retirement.MANCHESTER, England - While Europes other big leagues take a breather over the festive period, clubs in the English Premier League begin a traditionally frenzied spell of fixtures that excites fans, exhausts players, tests managers, and potentially defines campaigns.A run of four games in nine or 10 days kicks off on Friday with a full program, with Chelsea looking to tame one of the surprise teams of the season to stay in first place and keep title rival Manchester City at arms length.West Ham arrives at Stamford Bridge in fourth place and as Londons No. 2 team this season, a side reborn under Sam Allardyce following summer orders from the hierarchy to play a more attractive brand of football.West Ham is certainly doing that — and impressive wins over City and Liverpool so far suggest a trip to Chelsea will hold no fear.Playing against Big Sam (Allardyce) is a hard job for us, we have to cope with it, said Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho, who thinks his team has the hardest festive fixtures of all of the top teams with games at Southampton and Tottenham to come.By beating Stoke on Monday, Chelsea restored a three-point lead over City and ensured it would be top on Christmas Day — a noteworthy milestone that has special significance for the Blues. The last three times Chelsea has led the league on Dec. 25, it has gone on to win the title.What we did in the past is not important, Mourinho said. Whats important is this season, and this season we are top of the league since day one and we are there because we are playing really well.In my opinion we are the best team.Here are some other things to look out for in the 18th round:___EXCITING WEST HAM: When West Ham last travelled to Chelsea, in January 2014, the visitors held on for 0-0 despite conceding 39 shots on their goal, and were accused by Mourinho of playing football from the 19th century because of their defensive tactics.That is unlikely to be the case this time round, with Allardyce recently speaking of his fantastic options up front with strikerss Andy Carroll, Diafro Sakho, and Enner Valencia, and attacking midfielder Stewart Downing looking sharp.ddddddddddddere playing great football, and any team that we play against is going to be worried about us, said Carroll, who has rediscovered his best form after injury. Weve got more than one attacking option - we play it on the floor, play it in the air, down the sides.West Ham hasnt been in a higher position in the top flight of English football at Christmas Day since 1985.NO STRIKERS FOR CITY: Man City manager Manuel Pellegrini is facing the unenviable task of negotiating the festive period without any strikers.Sergio Aguero, Edin Dzeko and Stevan Jovetic will again be missing when City plays away at West Bromwich Albion. City coped on Saturday against Crystal Palace, playing midfielder James Milner up front and winning 3-0.Pellegrini said Dzeko and Aguero are unlikely to return until the second part of January but Jovetic will be sooner.City has won its last six league games in the defence of its title.VAN GAALS TREAT: Louis van Gaal is breaking with tradition at Manchester United and giving his squad Christmas Day off.Players used to train on Christmas Day under long-time coach Alex Ferguson, and did so in David Moyes short tenure last season, too. Van Gaal is dealing with English footballs unique festive fixture schedule for the first time, and sees things differently.I believe in a total human being, so the environment is also important, the Dutchman said ahead of Uniteds home match against Newcastle. They are more pleased to be at home with their wives and children.LEICESTER WORRY: Since the Premier Leagues inception in 1992, only two teams have stayed up when bottom of the standings at Christmas. The omens, therefore, are not looking good for Leicester.Leicester is winless in 12 games, five points from safety, and its manager Nigel Pearson is one of the favourites to become the first Premier League coach to be fired this season.Leicester is at home to Tottenham on Friday. cheap nfl jerseys wholesale nfl jerseys wholesale nfl jerseys cheap nfl jerseys cheap nfl jerseys ' ' '
