Matt Ginella's 10 toughest golf courses you can play in the U.S.

Golf is a tough game, particularly when a course is built and set up to challenge the best in the world. My list of the top 10 toughest courses you can play coast-to-coast has a good dose of Pete Dye and PGA Tour venues. It also has a well known brute in Hawaii and, of course, the famed Black Course at Bethpage State Park, host of The Barclays during the FedEx Cup Playoffs, not to mention past U.S. Opens and a future PGA Championship.
