The third major golf championship has arrived this year.
The US Open is full of challenges, allowing only the best in the game to win. By right, the tournament has the largest prize fund of the championship among all four major tournaments.
The first annual tournament was held in 1895 when the competition took place on a nine-hole course (a 36-hole competition) and was played over the course of one day. In 1898, the competition moved to an 18-hole course (72-hole competition) over two days. The event currently lasts four days and is attended by 156 golfers.
John Rahm became US Open champion last year, becoming the first player from Spain to win the tournament. This victory propelled Rama to first place in the official world golf rankings.
However, in the first round of the tournament, Ram finds himself in a 12-man draw and is ranked 14th with a rating of 1 under par. This group includes Justin Thomas, Colleen Morikawa, Adam Scott, Will Zalatoris and Open 2019 champion Gary Woodland.
At the top of the leaderboard is Canada’s Adam Hadwin with 4-under. It is closely followed by a group of five runners-up led by Rory McIlroy, 3rd down. Dustin Johnson, Matt Fitzpatrick and Justin Rose continue to claim 2nd place.
Phil Mickelson entered the tournament surrounded by a cloud of controversy after joining the Saudi-backed LIV Tour. He struggled out of the net on the first day, scoring eight overs, and is in serious danger of missing the net. Despite finishing second six times in his career, the Open remains the only major championship that Mickelson is missing from his trophy case.
