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.

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.
