Chambers Bay hits a ‘home run’

Golf Channel announcer Steve Burkowski used a baseball phrase Sunday to grade the U.S. Amateur at Chambers Bay. I think this place hit a home run this week," he said. Burkowski was effusive in his praise of the first major golf tournament at the county-owned course in University Place, as were officials of the United States Golf Association, Pierce County Executive Pat McCarthy, Gov. Chris Gregoire and legions of spectators.
