Game 186 | June 17, 1970
Lee Trevino, P. J. Boatwright, Jr.

The U.S. Open came to Hazeltine in 1970, and Trevino was one of the favorites. Boatwright, one of the world's foremost authorities on the rules of golf, was in his first year as executive director of the United States Golf Association. Trevino had won the Open in 1968 and would win again in 1971. He led golf’s money-winning list in 1970, but could not compete at Hazeltine, with Tony Jacklin winning by seven strokes over Dave Hill. This was the first major championship played at the relatively new golf course in Chaska.
