The U.S. Open, founded by the USGA in 1895, is the second oldest major tournament on the PGA Tour and remains one of the sternest tests in golf. Famed for the use of “Open doctors”, course architects like Rees Jones and before him his father Robert Trent Jones, to alter already difficult tracks into nearly unplayable courses complete with fast greens, tight fairways and deep rough often referred to as “Open” rough. These upgrades test golf’s finest players and golfers tend to struggle to break even, as show in 2019 when Brooks Koepka won with a score of +1. The course selection for the U.S. Open is handled by the USGA and unlike the Open Championship in the UK, there is no set rotation for courses. In all, 53 courses have hosted the tournament with 49 still in operation.
