With the PGA Championship in full swing at Bethpage Black, the Society of Golf Historians tweeted a photo of a letter A.W. Tillinghast wrote to the PGA of America after getting a personal tour of Pinehurst No. 2 from Donald Ross.
It’s, well, AWESOME:
The day AW Tillinghast sat down with Donald Ross in Pinehurst. Ross gave Tilly a hole-by-Hole tour of Pinehurst #2. A course that Ross claimed had not a single weak hole.

“Donald is certain that this is his greatest piece of work and he is tremendously proud of it, as he may well be for it is a truly great course – without a single weak hole,” wrote Tillinghast on Dec. 6, 1935, a few months before the PGA Championship would be played on No. 2. “…Without a doubt one of the greatest of all American courses.”
