Golf’s second major of the season is arguably its most demanding. Like the other three majors, the US Open is played over four rounds between Thursday and Sunday. An interesting fact about the date that the US Open is played is that it is always scheduled so that the final day of play on the Sunday coincides with the date of Fathers Day in America, which is always around the middle of June.
The United States Open Championship is an open men’s golf tournament, held in the USA every year. It is organized by the United States Golf Association in June. It is usually planned so that the final round is always held on the 3rd Sunday of June. It is also one of four major championships in men’s golf in the USA and is officially on the agenda of the PGA TOUR and the European Tour. The U.S. Open takes place at a number of grounds, which are generally established so that low scoring is practically impossible. Actually, an Open course is longer than a usual one and has rough, hilly greens and pinched fairways. Some grounds, that try to get on the rotation for the tournament, are redesigned in order to receive these features.
Any professional or any amateur with an up-to-date USGA handicap index not exceeding 1.4. can qualify to compete in the U.S. Open. Golfers reach the 156-player field by being fully exempt or by successfully competing in qualifying tournaments.
The first ever U.S. Open Championship took place on October 4, 1895, in Newport, Rhode Island. It was held in the form of a 36-hole competition and was played in one day. The participants consisted of 10 professional golfers and one amateur. The victory was gained by a young Englishman called Horace Rawlins. He got $150 out of the award fund of $325, and a $50 gold medal. His club was given the Open Championship Cup trophy, granted by the USGA.
US OPEN GOLF HISTORY
Horace Rawlins, an Englishman, won the first U.S. Open title in October, 1895, on a nine-hole course in New Port, RI. Ten professionals and one amateur competed in the 36-hole tournament played in one day. Rawlins won $150 cash, a $50 gold medal and a trophy out of a prize fund of $325.
The U.S. Open, which is one of the four major golf tournaments held yearly, didn’t have an American-born winner until 1911 when John J. McDermott won at the Chicago Golf Club. The other majors are The Masters, The US Open and the Professional Golfers Association (PGA) championship.
Players from only four nations, other than the United States, have won the U.S. Open since 1950. South African golfers lead the way with five championships since 1965.
The last three U.S. Opens have been won by non-American golfers. Retief Goosen, South Africa, won in 2005; Michael Campbell, New Zealand, in 2005; and Geoff Ogilvy, Australia, in 2006. No European player has won since England’s Tony Jacklin, captured the crown in 1970.

In fact, the Northern Irish youngster reached 17 under for short periods in his round before moving back to his finishing score.
