In celebration of famed golf architect Donald Ross’ birthday, Matt Ginella took a look back at the restoration of Pinehurst No. 2 on Sunday’s Morning Drive.

“Almost every golfer in America has a Ross course just down the street,” he said. “Not too long ago Pinehurst ownership and management realized that after several alterations, the most important Ross design had gone down the wrong street.”

The segment includes interviews with then-President Don Padgett II and current President Tom Pashley as well as designers Bill Coore and Ben Crenshaw.

“It’s a national treasure and we had to restore it,” Padgett said.
