Geoff Ogilvy has a theory about Pinehurst No. 2

Recently on The Fried Egg podcast, 2006 U.S. Open Champion Geoff Ogilvy recounted a conversation from the 2014 U.S. Open that he had with a few locals about why they love Pinehurst No. 2. Ogilvy’s reasoning for why he loves No. 2 is very different, but fits in precisely with what has allowed Donald Ross’ masterpiece to endure for more than a century. Take a listen.

Also, please take some time for both parts of The Fried Egg’s podcast with Ogilvy. It you’re a golf nut, it is definitely worth your time.

Part II with Geoff Ogilvy

And finally, take a look at The Fried Egg’s detailed look at No. 2’s 8th hole. 

And if you really want a fun rabbit hole, The Fried Egg and Brandel Chamblee had an interesting Twitter debate last week around the podcast.
