Pinehurst Reborn

The recently-restored Pinehurst No. 2 was put to its first tournament test

July 5, 2011
The 111th North & South Amateur Championship, which concluded July 2 with a victory by Jack Fields over David Erdy in the final, was the first tournament to be played on Pinehurst Resort's venerable No. 2 course since a dramatic restoration by Bill Coore and Ben Crenshaw returned the layout to the original design of architect Donald Ross. Acres of Bermuda rough were transformed into sandy, natural areas.
