US Open officially headed back to Torrey Pines
The San Diego City Council will receive $4 million for hosting the 2021 US Open at Torrey Pines.
What was reported last week has now become official. The San Diego City Council has voted unanimously to host the 2021 US Open at Torrey Pines.
And why not when you're getting $4 million?
According to the San Diego Union-Tribune the money will come from two different sources.
"In their comments before the vote, City Council members lauded the improved financial deal the city received for the ’21 Open. The USGA will pay $2.5 million – five times the amount from 2008 -- to the Golf Enterprise Fund while sharing hospitality revenue that could produce $1.7 million in revenue for the General Fund."
This isn't one-sided excitement, either. The USGA seems fired up to head back to the scene of Tiger Woods' last crime.
"We could not be any more excited about the concept of returning the U.S. Open to California and back to Torrey Pines Golf Course, which in 2008 saw one of the most historic and most exciting finishes in U.S. Open history," USGA president Tom O'Toole said.
Tiger will be 45 in 2021 and hometown boy Phil Mickelson will be 50.
