US Open Golf
U.S. Open Golf has been staged at several courses, and is set up in a manner that makes scoring very challenging with extra emphasis placed on accurate driving. The tournament has tight scoring around or at par by leaders, where the winner often emerges around the even par. It course is rarely beaten severely so that many over-par wins have been recorded, partly because par is frequently set at seventy except in case of the longest courses. Usually, an Open course is very long and has a high cut of the primary rough, pinched fairways and undulating greens. Some of these courses that are trying to bring themselves in rotation for the tournament will be renovated such that they have these characteristic features.
One of the most noted of ‘Open Doctors’ to take these projects is Rees Jones who replaced his father Robert Trent Jones. Just as in any other golf event, the space available on the course’s surroundings along with the local infrastructure, are also evaluated when deciding on the course to hold the tournament. Among some of the future sites is the Pebble Beach Golf Links, Winged Foot golf Club, Shinnecock Hills Golf Club, Erin Hills, Oakmont Country Club, Chambers Bay, Pinehurst Resort and Merion Golf Club.
The tournament is broadcasted on TV by ESPN and NBC, alongside additional coverage of marquee groups arranged by ESPN through the event’s official website. Among players holding the record for winning the most US Open championships with four wins each are Jack Nicklaus, Ben Hogan, Bobby Jones and Willie Anderson. Recent champions include Webb Simpson, Rory Mcllory, Graeme McDowell, Lucas Glover, Tiger Woods, Angel Cabrera, Geof Ogilvy and Michael Campbell.
