The U.S. Open is returning to Winged Foot, the New York club with a history of clutch moments and one unforgettable collapse.

The U.S. Golf Association will announce Monday that the West Course at Winged Foot will host the 2020 U.S. Open. Only two other courses — Oakmont and Baltusrol — will have held the national championship more times.

The most recent trip to Winged Foot was memorable — not for Geoff Ogilvy winning with a superb up-and-down from below the 18th green, but for Phil Mickelson blowing his best chance to win the U.S. Open.

Billy Casper won his first U.S. Open at Winged Foot in 1959. Fuzzy Zoeller won in '84 in a playoff over Greg Norman, who holed a long putt across the 18th green for par.
