The US Open kicks off Thursday at Shinnecock Hills Golf Club in Southampton, New York. Players must cross the course from 6:45 am ET until 7:00 PM Streaming begins as soon as the game is running on FOX Sports GO, and the TV show starts on FS1 at 9:30 before switching to FOX later in the day.
Expect the best players in the world to have plenty of difficulty when they tee off at Shinnecock Hills Golf Club in Southampton, New York, for the first round Thursday. The tournament is scheduled to conclude Sunday, barring any long weather delays.
This tournament is a great deal in any year. It’s the national championship, and the field of 156 men is great. Includes 12 former champions of the US Open UU And, for the first time since 2015, this list includes Tiger Woods. The most famous player in the world has not been in this scenario since the injury was lost when he was injured in Chambers Bay three years ago, and this tournament brings the excitement that can only exist when Woods plays well to reach a major. Woods’ last two starts were a 1-1 draw at the Players Championship in May and a top 25 at Memorial on the first weekend of June. He had three weeks to prepare for this championship. He is among the favorites of the punters.
The USGA constantly sets its courses to be among the most brutal tests of golf. Last year at Erin Hills was an exception. Brooks Koepka won with a score of 16 under 72 holes, tied for the lowest number tied in a US Open. It will not happen at Shinnecock. This is the fifth time this Hamptons circuit hosts the championship, and the last two winning results are parity (Corey Pavin in 1995) and 4 under par (Retief Goosen in 2004). The fairways are now wider than they were then, and maybe the course will be easier. But whoever wins this championship will probably have to make an effort to do it.
