The 115th U.S. Open is Here!

The U.S. Open is the annual open golf tournament of the United States. It is the second of four major championships in golf. The U.S. Open is on the official schedule of both the PGA Tour and the European Tour. The tournament is staged by the United States Golf Association (USGA) in mid-June. If there are no weather delays, the final round is played on the third Sunday, Father's Day.

U.S. Open History

The first U.S. Open was played on October 4, 1895, on a 9-hole course at the Newport Country Club in Newport, Rhone Island. At that time, the tournament was played in a single day as a 36-hole competition. Just ten professionals and one amateur entered the competition, with the winner being a 21 year old Englishman named Horace Rawlins. The prize was $150 cash and a $50 golf medal. At first, the tournament was dominated by experienced British players. Then, in 1911, John J. McDermott became the first native-born American winner. American golfers soon began to win regularly and the tournament evolved to become one of the four majors.
