What Are The Top Golf Tournaments

PGA TourThere are some golf tournaments whose pedigrees demand respect and admiration for what they contribute to the game's history. These tournaments test the resolve and skills of the players to a degree that other contests can't begin to match. Actually, it's a good thing that the really great golf tournaments don't come around but a few times each year. Anything beyond the strain evident in those occasional contests could be so dangerous to the psyches of some players that they might very well have short golf careers.

U.S. Open officials don't like their tournament being roughed up by par breaking players. On Sunday, the pin placements are in their toughest positions and the greens are slick as glass.
