U.S. Open Facts

The U.S. Open is the annual open golf tournament of the United States. It is the second of the four major championships in golf, and is on the official schedule of both the PGA Tour and the European Tour. Presented by the United States Golf Association (USGA) in mid-June, the tournament is scheduled so that the final round is played on the third Sunday, which is Father's Day (weather permitting).

This year marks the 119th U.S. Open Championship, and the sixth U.S. Open to be played at Pebble Beach.

Playoff format: The playoff format for the Open championships is a two-hole aggregate. If a tie remains, the players will go to sudden death.

Defending champion: Brooks Koepka

U.S. Open Championship facts:

  • The top 10 finishers and ties at the U.S. Open are fully exempt from qualifying for the following year's U.S. Open, and the top four are automatically invited to the following season's Masters Tournament.
  • The first U.S. Open was played on a 9-hole course at the Newport Country Club on October 4, 1895, during the same week and on the same course as the first U.S. Amateur.
  • The U.S. Open received its first national television exposure at the Baltusrol in 1954. That year also marked the first time a U.S. Open course was roped from tee to green.
  • The oldest U.S. Open Champion was Hale Irwin. He was 45 years and 15 days old when he won the U.S. Open in 1990 at Medinah Golf Club.
  • The youngest U.S. Open Champion was John McDermott. He was 19 years, 10 months, and 14 days old when he won the U.S. Open in 1911 at the Chicago Golf Club.
  • During the 1960 U.S. Open, Arnold Palmer staged the greatest comeback in the history of the Open when he erased a seven-stroke deficit during his final round to win his only U.S. Open Championship.

Brief History of the U.S. Open

The U.S. Open was a small operation when it was first played in 1895. In that first decade, the championship was largely staged for amateurs and immigrant professionals, principally from Great Britain. Both the U.S. Open and the U.S. Amateur originally had been scheduled for September, but they were postponed because of a conflict with a more established Newport spectacle, the America’s Cup yacht races.

As American golfers continued to develop, the U.S. Open grew in stature as an important world golf event. Young John McDermott was the first native-born American to win the U.S. Open, clinching titles in 1911 and 1912. Then, Francis Ouimet, a 20-year-old amateur from Brookline, Massachusetts, stunned the golf world with his playoff victory over two of the game's greatest players, English professionals Harry Vardon and Ted Ray, in 1913. In 1933, John Goodman became the fifth and most recent amateur to win the U.S. Open. Other amateur winners are Jerome D. Travers (1915), Charles Evans, Jr. (1916), and Bob Jones (1923, 1926, 1929, and 1930).

As the U.S. Open gained popularity among eligible players, sectional qualifying was introduced in 1924 to determine the strongest field. In 1959, U.S. Open entries reached what was a record high 2,385 entries, causing the USGA to expand the qualifying system to two stages, local and sectional. Since 1959, only two players have survived both qualifying stages and won the U.S. Open Championship: Ken Venturi in 1964 and Orville Moody in 1969.

Jack Nicklaus won the 1962 U.S. Open in his first season as a professional. He also won in 1967, 1972, and 1980 to become one of only four golfers to win four U.S. Open Championships. The others are Jones, Willie Anderson (1901, 1903, 1904, and 1905), and Ben Hogan (1948, 1950, 1951, and 1953). At the 2011 U.S. Open at Congressional Country Club, Rory McIlroy shot 2-under-par 69 in the final round for a record-breaking 16-under par 268 to claim the 111th U.S. Open Championship by eight strokes. Brooks Koepka tied McIlroy's record for lowest total under par with his 72-hole total of 16-under par 272 to win his first major at the 2017 U.S. Open at Erin Hills.
