True to the character of the Steel City, Oakmont Country Club is one of the toughest tests in Major championship golf.
Team Titleist traveled to the site of the 116th US Open to meet the people who live and breathe the game and are proud to call Pittsburgh home. These are their stories.
At Oakmont there is a game called SWAT. Why is it named as such? No one knows. Oakmont Country Club Founder H.C. Fownes not only designed and built a world-renowned course in 1903, he also teed it up in The SWAT. The club’s membership has preserved the records of The SWAT with hard-bound ledgers that go back to the 1950s. And the game remains as competitive as its storied history.
