The Metropolitan Open is a golf tournament organized by the Metropolitan Golf Association, which covers New York City and its suburbs and surrounding districts in northern New Jersey and southwestern Connecticut. The tournament has been played annually since 1905, and is the second oldest "Open" golf tournament in the United States, after the U.S. Open. It is held at member clubs in New York, New Jersey, and Connecticut. It was considered a PGA Tour event from 1916 to 1940. In fact, it was one of the "major" tournaments of this period.[1] The 2009 winner was Andrew Giuliani, the son of former New York City mayor Rudy Giuliani.
