Bruce discusses his life playing and working in golf, and his journey to becoming a course architect, from the first time he thought of pin location through his field of study in college.  When a designer's course hosts a major, that is as "big time" as it gets.  We discuss the 2015 US Open at the Chambers Bay course Bruce designed with his team.  We also discuss golf's status as a worldwide sport, and how people can continue to spread the word that, as we say here on Ground Under Repair, golf is for everyone.
