The United States Open Championship, commonly known as the U.S. Open is now one of the biggest sports betting events of the year. It is the annual open golf tournament of the United States. It is the second of the four major championships in golf, and is on the official schedule of both the PGA Tour and the European Tour. It is staged by the United States Golf Association (USGA) in mid-June, scheduled so that, if there are no weather delays, the final round is played on the third Sunday, which is Father's Day.

The tournament is open to any professional, or to any amateur with an up-to-date USGA Handicap Index not exceeding 1.4. Players (male or female) may obtain a place by being fully exempt or by competing successfully in qualifying. The field is 156 players.

The Pinehurst #2 course is a 72 Hole stroke play; Field will be cut to low 60 scores and ties following the completion of 36 holes. An 18-Hole playoff will take place if two or more players are tied after 72 holes. If the playoff results in a tie, play will immediately continue hole-by-hole until a champion is determined.

US Open Golf History

This 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.
