HIS U.S. OPEN TITLES AS WELL, BUT HOW DID THE CLUB ITSELF ACTUALLY GET ITS NAME?>>HI, I’M RICK WOLF. I SERVE AS ONE OFC CO-HISTORIANS HERE. IT WAS NAMED FOR A FARMER WHO USED TO FARM THIS LAND WHO WAS MURDERED IN 1841. HIS FIRST NAME WAS BALTUS. LAST NAME ROL. WE HAVE SOME COOL ITEMS IN OUR CLUBHOUSE ON DISPLAY. THIS FRAMED PIECE IS FROM THE 1960s U.S. OPEN, WHICH WAS WON BY JACK NICKLAUS IN A VERY FAMOUS DUEL WITH ARNOLD PALMER. THE ORIGINAL WAS LOST WHEN THE CLUBHOUSE BURNT DOWN IN EAST LAKE. THE UNITED STATES GOLF ASSOCIATION REPLACED IT WITH THE CURRENT TROPHY IN 1926 AND IT WAS FIRST AWARDED HERE AT BA BALTUSROL. THE FIRST U.S. OPEN WE HOSTED WAS IN 1903, WON BY WILLIE AND ANDERSON. WE’RE PROUD OF THIS PRINT THIS IS ONE OF THE MOST FAMOUS GOLF SCENES. EVERY SINGLE PERSON IN THIS PRINT PAID TO GET THEMSELVES INTO IT. WE’RE DOWN IN OUR MEN’S LOCKER ROOM. YOU SEE JACK NICKLAUS HERE, WHICH IS A FAMOUS POSE OF HIM SINKING A PUTT IN THE 1980 U.S. OPEN. HERE IS ALL EIGHT OF JACK’S
