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's history 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. Every tournament has its niche, and with the U.S. Open, it’s said to be made the toughest for those with inconsistent drives. They try to keep the course long and therefore courses that want to be a part of the U.S. Open rotation will sometimes undergo renovations to make itself attractive to the tournament.
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. The tournament is one that every golfer dreams of winning, and being that it is held all over the country, you’ll have a chance to see it without having to travel too far. Don't miss your chance to be a part of golf history! Score with TicketCity - the place to go for US Open Golf tickets.
2014 US Open Preview

In 2013, the anticipation behind the 113th US Open hit an all-time high with the announcement of the Woods, Mcllroy, Scott pairing but slowly faded as nerves seemed to get the best of the three stars. Though Mickelson headed the leader board for a decent part of the tournament he was unable to hold on to the top spot after shooting 4 over in the final round. With 3 solid rounds at 71, 69, and 71 Justin Rose carded an even 70 in the final round to take a 2 stroke lead and his first US Open victory.
