US Open Golf History

The U.S. Open golf championship, first played in 1895, was originally played concurrently with the U.S. Amateur Open, but both were postponed because of the America's Cup, which was to occur at the same time. Both were scheduled in Newport, Rhode Island, but the Americas Cup, a yacht race, was more popular at the time and so the U.S. Open had to be delayed.

All 36 holes of the US Open were originally played in one day. That changed in 1898 when the USGA changed it to a two day event, with 36 holes on each day, for a total of 72 holes. It changed again in 1926, with 18 holes each day on the first two days, and 36 on the third. Since 1965, the U.S. Open has played with 18 holes per round, for four days.
