There was quite a racket after the U.S. Open ended last week. About $10,000 worth of alcohol leftover from the game was stolen after the tennis tournament, which took place at Merion Golf Club and was from last Thursday through Sunday.
The Trophy Club, located on Haverford College’s campus, was the scene of the crime. The Trophy Club has been described 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 18th hole at Merion Golf Club,” by U.S. Open’s spectator guide.
The drinks available at the club ranged from beer to wine to mixed drinks, but the township’s police department didn’t specify what type of alcohol the thieves stole. So far, no one has been arrested for the crime. We are assuming that the most important lesson here is to not store $10,000 of alcohol on a college campus at next year’s U.S. Open.
