The Country Club is getting its first U.S. Open in three decades.

The USGA on Wednesday announced three sites for golf's U.S. Open, including The Country Club, in Brookline, for the 2022 championship.

The course outside Boston was the scene of perhaps the most important golf championship in American history. It's where Francis Ouimet won a playoff over British titans Harry Vardon and Ted Ray. The upset put golf on the front pages of newspapers.

Curtis Strange won the last U.S. Open in Brookline in 1988.

The last big event there was the Ryder Cup in 1999 that featured the great American comeback under captain Ben Crenshaw.
