In June, the U.S. Open returns to North Carolina for the third time in 16 years. The legendary Pinehurst #2 will host players in what is often cited as the most mentally taxing golfing event of the year. Designed in 1907 by Donald Ross, the evil genius, this course has served as the site of more single golf championships than any course in America. In 2014, this course will make history again, serving as host to the U.S. Open and Women’s Open Championships in consecutive weeks. When anyone who knows anything about golf hears “Pinehurst #2” they think of Payne Stewarts legendary “fist punch” or associate it with class.
You see, Pinehurst #2 elicits memories of greatness that most want to have associated with their company or brand. When someone hears your company or brand name, what are they thinking? How are you leveraging each opportunity, like the U.S. Open, to grow this image?
