$10,000 worth of alcohol stolen from U.S. Open tent

Posted at 5:07 PM by Coleman McDowell | Categories: 2013 U.S. Open, Merion Golf Club

Unattended alcohol sitting on a college campus is begging for trouble.

In the week following the U.S. Open, $10,000 worth of alcohol was stolen from the U.S. Open Trophy Club tent that resided on the lawn of Haverford College right down the road from Merion Golf Club, according to Philly.com and the Haverford Township Police.

The USGA spectator guide describes the Trophy Club as "an exclusive on-site, air-conditioned pavilion with live U.S. Open coverage located at Haverford College, approximately 400 yards from the clubhouse parking area and the 18th hole at Merion Golf Club."

The logistics of stealing $10,000 worth of liquor don't seem simple. This was quite the operation. Could it be fans who were denied entry seeking their revenge? Was it players who suffered through four rounds of sloping fairways and calf-high rough? Or was it just college freshman who wanted some free booze?

Stay tuned..
