Northern Trust Open History
The Northern Trust Open is a professional golf tournament that is a part of the PGA
(Professional Golfers Association) Tour season each year. This tournament dates all the way back to the 1920s, when it was
originally known as the Los Angeles Open. The tournament has changed its names multiple times since then, but has retained
a rich history of incredible displays of golf throughout the years. The event is played early in the PGA season as part of
the PGA Tour's "West Coast Swing," and several golf legends make regular appearances at the Riviera Country Club in Pacific
Palisades, where the event has been held nearly every year since 1973 – except a period between 1983 and 1998. Plenty
of historic golfers have won the event, including Tom Watson, Johnny Miller, Arnold Palmer and more, and this event is always
worth the effort to see whether you're a hardcore fan or just looking for a great display of golf.
Do you know who holds the record under par for the Northern Trust Open?
The answer is Lanny Wadkins,
who shot a record 20 under par in 1985 to set the all-time tournament record.
