1966 Sandra Spuzich edges defending champion Carol Mann by a stroke at the U.S. Women's Open. Bag sponsors mourn the missed opportunity.
\n1970 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.
\n1977-1983 The course is ripped up and redesigned. Among Minnesota makeovers, it ranks with Jesse Ventura trading pro wrestling for politics.
\n1983 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."
\n1991 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.
\n2002 The club is awarded the 2016 Ryder Cup. Or, as Rory McIlroy calls it, the 2016 "Exhibition."
\n2002 Antacid-downing Rich Beem holds off Tiger Woods at the PGA. Overheated agent pitches new sports drink: "Pepto-Ade."
\n2006 The club declines a chance to host the 2012 BMW Championship. In snowy Minnesota, the Dodge Durango Championship might have had more legs.
