The Barclays visits Bethpage Black this week, a course so brutal that a first-tee marquee infamously warns players on the impending difficulty. The sign has become as popular as the course itself, with many a golfer stopping to snap a photo of the post. Which got us thinking: What are the most famous landmarks in golf?
Originally known as “Sundial Boy” until the 1970s, the statue was briefly located in the World Golf Hall of Fame. However, it returned to the Pinehurst clubhouse in 1990, residing once more by the Pinehurst putting green.
Named for Jack Nicklaus, who redesigned the course, PGA National's 15th, 16th and 17th holes are more than a marketing ploy: At the 2015 Honda Classic, there were 145 birdies at the Bear Trap against 299 bogeys or worse.
