Ten greatest tournament moments from the course's long history as reported by Sean Martin for PGATour.com
1. 1950 U.S. Open
Itís only fitting that this championship is memorialized in one of the gameís indelible images, for Ben Hoganís victory at the 1950 U.S. Open was not only one of the greatest achievements in this game, but in all of sport.
The famed Hy Peskin photo of Ben Hogan hitting a 1-iron into Merionís 18th green will be shown countless times this week. Hoganís strike on the final hole did not immediately clinch victory, though.
