1. Winged Foot Golf Club (West Course), Mamaroneck, N.Y., 1923
Given the edict to "build us a man-sized" course, Tillinghast did just that, creating a stern test for the ages with lengthy par-4s and frighteningly deep bunkers guarding imaginatively contoured, pear-shaped greens. Among its five U.S. Opens, Bobby Jones's miraculous downhill, 12-foot, left-to-right breaking putt in 1929 to earn a playoff stands out, although Fuzzy waving the white flag at Greg Norman in 1984 is a Hall of Fame moment as well. Geoff Ogilvy, left, got up-and-down to par the 18th on Sunday en route to his 2006 Open win.
