Cypress Point: The Greatest Walk In Golf . . .

Golf Digest Senior Travel Editor, Matt Ginella, gives you a video tour of the walk from the 15th hole to the greatest stage in golf: the 16th tee at Cypress Point in Pebble Beach, Calif. An Alister Mackenzie course that opened in 1928, Cypress Point was the site of the 1956 battle between Ben Hogan and Byron Nelson versus Ken Venturi and Harvie Ward, recently written about by Mark Frost in the book, The Match.
