The USGA announced the 2019 U.S. Amateur Four-Ball Championship move on Tuesday
Relocated: The 2019 U.S. Amateur Four-Ball Championship, from Chambers Bay in University Place, Wash., to Bandon Dunes Golf Resort in Bandon, Ore., the U.S. Golf Association announced Tuesday. The move was made to accommodate a turfgrass change at Chambers Bay, which will transition its greens from fescue to Poa annua. Chambers Bay, a 2007 Robert Trent Jones Jr. design, sits on the Puget Sound site of a former sand/gravel quarry. The course was widely criticized for its bumpy putting surfaces during the 2015 U.S. Open, which Jordan Spieth won when Dustin Johnson three-putted the 72nd hole from 12 feet. Chambers Bay will play host to the 2021 U.S. Amateur Four-Ball, the USGA said.
