Amid a heavy load of responsibility – the U.S. Senior Open this week, the upcoming U.S. Ryder Cup as the new captain – American Corey Pavin, a former U.S. Open winner, was asked Wednesday if he’d seen Chambers Bay.

Come to find out, Pavin will get a good look at it for the first time Sept. 11 for a corporate outing where he’ll play a round.

“I heard it’s a pretty cool golf course, pretty neat and kind of a linksy course, I believe, so I’m actually looking forward to seeing it and playing it,” Pavin said.

When told the course had one tree, overseeing the 15th green, it only reiterated the links-style comparisons to championships courses in the United Kingdom.

“One tree?” he said. “Sort of like last week at Carnoustie, there is one tree on the course.”
