FAR HILLS, N.J. — The 2008 U.S. Open was awarded to the South Course at Torrey Pines in La Jolla by the U.S. Golf Assn. on Saturday, pending approval of the San Diego City Council.
It would be the second public course to play host to the tournament. The Black Course at the Bethpage State Park in New York, where this year's U.S. Open was played, is the only public layout to have been the site of the championship.
