1966 Sandra Spuzich edges defending champion Carol Mann by a stroke at the U.S. Women's Open. Bag sponsors mourn the missed opportunity.
1970 At the U.S. Open, a disgruntled Dave Hill quips that Hazeltine's only missing "80 acres of corn and a few cows. They ruined a good farm when they built this course." Ignoring moos from the galleries, Hill finishes a career-best second to Tony Jacklin.
1977 Hollis Stacy, 23, goes wire-to-wire to win the U.S. Women's Open. It's the biggest victory at Hazeltine for a player with two first names until... Northwestern's Luke Donald wins the 1999 NCAAs.
1977-1983 The course is ripped up and redesigned. Among Minnesota makeovers, it ranks with Jesse Ventura trading pro wrestling for politics.
1983 Billy Casper wins the U.S. Senior Open, defeating Rod Funseth in a playoff. Confusion ensues when Casper strips down to jump in "Lake Ovaltine."
1991 Payne Stewart shoots 75 to edge Scott Simpson in a Monday playoff at the U.S. Open (thankfully for Stewart, Simpson makes eight bogeys and cards a 77). Larry Polasky, an 18-handicapper from Duluth, finishes three back.
1994 Hazeltine hosts the U.S. Mid-Amateur. Tennessean Tim Jackson wins, then brings down the house with rousing rendition of Don't Rock the Jukebox. Oh, wait...that's Alan Jackson?
2002 The club is awarded the 2016 Ryder Cup. Or, as Rory McIlroy calls it, the 2016 "Exhibition."
2002 Antacid-downing Rich Beem holds off Tiger Woods at the PGA. Overheated agent pitches new sports drink: "Pepto-Ade."
2006 The club declines a chance to host the 2012 BMW Championship. In snowy Minnesota, the Dodge Durango Championship might have had more legs.
2006 Richie Ramsay becomes the first Scotsman in 100-plus years to win the U.S. Amateur. And he hasn't been knighted?
