The U.S. Open, or the United States Open Championship, is one of the four major championships that take place each year on the PGA Tour. Annually taking place during mid June, the U.S. Open is scheduled so that the final round will take place on Father's Day. Many look at the tournament as the best among the major championships, with crowds following the every move of their favorite golfer. You can have a chance to witness history by getting U.S. Open tickets today and securing the opportunity to see golf's elite.
The U.S. Open had very simple beginnings. Taking place in Newport, Rhode Island, the first U.S. Open was won by 21-year-old Horace Rawlins who took home a $150 prize and a gold medal. The tournament consisted of only 36 holes and was almost considered secondary to the U.S. Amateur Tournament, which was bigger in that era. But as time went on, the U.S. Open began to grow in importance and popularity as transcendent players began to take to the tees.
All time great players like Walter Hagen, Gene Sarazen, Bobby Jones and Ben Hogan all can say they lifted the U.S. Open trophy, but like nearly every other major golf tournament, there are two golfers that have brought the sport and the tournament to the mainstream. Jack Nicklaus and Tiger Woods are unarguably the best of their separate generations, and they were able to set multiple records at the U.S. Open. Jack Nicklaus holds or is tied for records in lowest score for 72 holes, lowest for 18 holes and most consecutive opens started. Tiger Woods holds the record for largest margin of victory when he won by 15 strokes in 2000 and most strokes under par for 72 holes. They will constantly be viewed in comparison to one another with records defining each.
For golf lovers, the U.S. Open is as good as it gets, with great players competing on the most difficult of courses. Be a witness to that greatness by finding hard to get U.S. Open tickets on TicketNetwork, your source for the best selection of cheap U.S. Open tickets!
