Muirfield Village Golf Club was the dream of Jack Nicklaus and a vision born on a brilliant April day in 1966.

It was after one of the Golden Bear’s rounds in that year’s Masters Tournament, and he was sitting with high-school friend Ivor Young, discussing how wonderful it would be to have something like Augusta National in their hometown of Columbus, Ohio.

GULLANE, Scotland -- Some of the most significant moments in recent history of the British Open at Muirfield have come on the 17th hole.

Ernie Els recovered from a mini-collapse with a birdie that put him into a playoff he won in 2002. Jack Nicklaus took the outright lead in 1966 by reaching the par 5 in two shots for a birdie that carried him to his first claret jug. It's where Lee Trevino chipped in for par, which ultimately denied Nicklaus a shot at the third leg of the Grand Slam and demoralized Tony Jacklin.

But it's not just Muirfield.
