US Open returns to Congressional in 2011

The U.S. Open will return to Congressional Country Club in 2011.

The U.S. Golf Association scheduled a news conference for Wednesday to formally announce that the tournament will be held at the suburban Washington, D.C., club for the third time. Congressional also hosted the event in 1964 and 1997.

The USGA will also announce that Congressional will host the 2009 U.S. Amateur championships.

The 1964 event is most remembered for champion Ken Venturi's perseverance through the heat and humidity of the Maryland summer. South African Ernie Els prevailed in 1997.

Congressional also hosted the 1976 PGA Championship and next year will be the temporary home of the PGA TOUR's Booz Allen Classic. The Booz Allen's usual course, the Tournament Players Club at Avenel, is undergoing renovations.
