US Open Golf History

The U.S. Open has traditionally been the most challenging of the four majors, and this week's championship at Pinehurst No. 2 will without a doubt be another of those. The world-renowned course in the Sandhills - North Carolina is expected put up a stern test for the strongest 156-man field in world golf.


Favourites to raise the 2014 U.S. Open Trophy are Rory McIlroy, Adam Scott, Phil Mickelson, Bubba Watson, Justin Rose and Henrik Stenson.

A U.S. Open course is seldom beaten severely, and there have been many over-par wins (partially because par is usually set at 70, except for the longest courses). Open courses are usually quite long and will have a high cut of primary rough "Open rough", pinched fairways (especially on what are expected to be less difficult holes) and surging greens (such as at Pinehurst No. 2 in 2005) are all features that depict just the tip of the ice berg with regards to the challenging characteristics related to a US Open golf course.

This year’s event will tee off at the Par 70; 6996 yard East Course at the Merion Golf Club, of Ardmore, Pennsylvania.

The Hugh Irvine Wilson designed East course has been apprised by the Golf Digest as one of America's greatest golf courses and will certainly deliver yet another challenging Major championship. An Interesting Fact - Since 1916 the East course pins have been topped with wicker baskets instead of the usual flags.

One important factor relating to the Merion wicker basket tradition is the fact that unlike any other golf course that the Merion baskets are visible no matter which way the wind is blowing – but in no way do the give the golfer any indication of wind direction at the green.

Has been drifting in a good way for some time now, he is currently ranked at No. 1 in the world, and is playing exceptional of late, when compared to the other top ranked contenders.

Rory Mcllroy (2)

the two time major championships has bounced back in exceptional fashion after lousy 2013 season. Anything can happen at a Major and according to Mcllroy things could definitely go his way, with a little bit of work ahead of the main event.

Matt Kucher (4)

has had a really good season thus far, and Pinehurst might be where he finally wins his first ever major championship.
