Crooked Stick Golf Club
Crooked Stick Golf Club is located in Carmel, Indiana, a suburb north of Indianapolis. Built in 1964 by the famous course architects Pete and Alice Dye, it was host to the PGA Championship in 1991 won by John Daly and the U.S. Women’s Open in 1993, won by Lauri Merten. It also hosted the Solheim Cup matches in 2005. Crooked Stick also hosted the 2012 BMW Championship, won by Rory McIlroy, and hosted the tournament again in 2016, where Dustin Johnson won with a record breaking -23. For many years it has been noted as one of the top 100 courses in the U.S. by Golfweek and Golf Magazine, two of golf's most popular magazines.
