Hills alive for 2018

Shinnecock Hills, the course which caused much controversy the last time the US Open was held there seven years ago, will stage the event again in 2018.

Retief Goosen won in 2004, but only after play in the final round had to be suspended after the seventh green became virtually unplayable.

After three of the first four players on the 189-yard par three hole had taken triple bogeys and the other a miraculous bogey the action was halted so hoses could be used to soften the surface.
