US Open Golf History

The first US Open was played in 1895 on a nine-hole course at the Newport Country Club. It was a 36-hole competition contested on a single day between ten professionals and one amateur.

Since 1898 the tournament has been 72 holes of stroke play (4 rounds on an 18-hole course), with the winner being the player with the lowest total number of strokes.

The US Open is held at a variety of courses in the United States which are often tight and difficult. Accurate driving is imperative with the winner traditionally finishing around even par.

The US Open has been traditionally won by players from the United States. Players from only six countries outside the United States have won the tournament since 1950.

Willie Anderson, Bobby Jones, Ben Hogan and Jack Nicklaus all won four US Open titles. Hale Irwin and Tiger Woods have both won three US Opens.
