Every year the U.S. Golf Association hosts a major championship in men's professional golf, the US Open. This championship title is one of the oldest in the sport as it dates back to 1895. Although the competition is played on American soil, the early years were dominated by British golfers. The past 50 years have seen an influx of talented players from throughout the world's golfing community making the US Open one of the most exciting competitions in men's golf.
The US Open is held at different courses each year, and though some courses have made regular appearances at the Open, no course has hosted the event two years in a row. Courses are selected that require high skill level, and rarely produce wins significantly under par. The US Open is unique among the golf majors due to tie-breaking rules that provide for an additional 18 hole round of play held the day after the final. Only after that round, should the contestants still be tied, is a sudden death playoff held. This has happened only 3 times in Open history.
The US Open men's championship is one of the most challenging in the sport. Course designs are demanding and fans are guaranteed a good day of golf. Legends are born at the US Open.
