UNIVERSITY PLACE, Wash. (AP) - For the first time in years, Matt Allen at Chambers Bay isn't explaining to golfers why a temporary green is being used or why a path is blocked off for construction equipment.

All the physical changes are essentially complete at the waterside links course that will become the first Pacific Northwest golf course to ever host the U.S. Open when it comes here in 2015. Allen, the general manager at Chambers Bay, feels a mix of relief and accomplishment.

From the time that the course first opened in 2007 to how it looks now wouldn't be considered overly dramatic from a broad perspective. But tucked inside those dunes are significant changes, some learned when the course hosted the 2010 U.S. Amateur and some learned in daily feedback from recreational golfers.
