2014 U.S. Open Trivia
Did you know that John
McDermott was once the youngest golfer to ever win the U.S. Open?
All the way back in 1911, when this tournament was
still in the phases of taking off, McDermott etched his name in the annals by shooting his way to the title, making it just
the second time an American had won the U.S. Open. Before that, it was Scottish golfers who dominated, which makes sense considering
it's practically a birth right over there, but it was with McDermott that the Americans started to catch up. American golfers
would win seven straight titles including McDermott, and since then it's been a melting pot of golf talent from all over the
world as this tournament continues to expand and grow its legacy.
