MINNEAPOLIS, Minnesota (Steve Karnowski/AP) — It’s hard to imagine a more prime location for an out-of-town Ryder Cup spectator to spend the night than Jason Wendlandt’s two-bedroom home.
It’s 80 feet from the main entrance to Hazeltine National, the course in the Minneapolis suburb of Chaska that’s hosting the prestigious international golf tournament this weekend. It’s well inside the tight, extended security perimeter.
And it’s $900 a night, sleeps four people and offers a view over Lake Hazeltine.
