Tom Kite, a 19-time PGA Tour winner who just captured his 10th
Champions Tour victory Sunday at the Boeing Classic near Seattle, took
a day out of his preparation this week to tour _ and play – Chambers
Bay Golf Course.
He liked it.
And he sees plenty of work ahead for the site of the 2010 U.S. Amateur, and 2015 U.S Open.
“I thought the … whole complex was impressive. Holy smokes, to take
that quarry and make it the facility they have is fantastic,” said
Kite, who played the course Tuesday, three days before the start of the
Boeing Classic. “They are going to have to hurry to get it ready (for
the U.S. Am).”
In a couple weeks, Chambers Bay will celebrate its 15-month anniversary.
