2014 U.S. Open History
The first US Open was held in 1895 at Newport Country Club in Rhode Island, a nine-hole
course, and the ten contestants played thirty six holes on a single day. These days the field at the US Open consists of 156
total players, making for unique blend of the most explosive talent that you're going to find anywhere. Amateurs are able
to qualify as long as they have a proven handicap less than 1.4 and can either compete in qualifying events successfully or
receiving an exemption. With a blend of the stars of both today and tomorrow, it doesn't get any better than the U.S. Open,
a place where dreams tend to come true and the fans are the ultimate winners each and every spring.
Did you know that John McDermott was once the youngest golfer to ever win the U.S. Open?
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 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.
