When is the 2019 US Open?

The US Open is one of the toughest tests in golf
 

Long courses, thick rough and tough conditions are attributed to the higher scoring you see at the US Open.

Here’s the lowdown on the 2019 tournament.

A brief history of US Open

The US Open is the annual national golf championship in the United States. It is the second major to be played during the season and run by the USGA.

The tournament was first played in October 1895 on a nine-hole course at the Newport Country Club in Rhode Island.

Did you know…

Rory McIlroy holds the record for the lowest 72 hole score of 268 thanks to rounds of 65-66-68-69 helped him win the US Open at Congressional in 2011.

There is no age limit on who can enter the US Open and recently 15 year old Cole Hammer played in the 2015 event at Chambers Bay as well as 14 year old Andy Zhang who qualified in 2012 at Congressional.

Justin Thomas holds the record for the lowest round relative to par in US Open history. His round of nine under par (63) at Erin Hills in 2018 broke Johnny Miller’s record of eight under par from the 1973 US Open at Oakmont.

Where is the 2019 US Open?

The 2019 edition of the US Open returns to Pebble Beach for the first time since Graeme McDowell’s maiden major win in 2010.

It’ll be the sixth time the course has hosted the event since 1972 when it became the first public course to host the tournament.

When McDowell won the 2019 tournament he became the first non American to do so at Pebble Beach.

When is the 2019 US Open?

The 2019 US Open will be played between Thursday 13 June and Sunday 16 June 2019 at Pebble Beach Golf Club.

Who is the reigning champion?

Brooks Koepka is the reigning champion heading to the famous West Coast course after he became the first player to win the US Open back-to-back since Curtis Strange defended his title in 1989.

Matthew Beedle

National Club Golfer and National Club Golfer magazine

Matthew has been playing golf since he was around 13 and took up the game at a local nine-hole municipal course with his friends before joining Pontefract & District Golf Club just over the hedge.

Still a member of Pontefract with a handicap of 3, he currently sits on the board of directors to help with digital and marketing initiatives in order to improve membership and visitor income.

Matthew graduated university with a First Class in Sports Journalism from Leeds Trinity University and has been working in the golf industry since graduating.

NCG’s social media & marketing manager, Matthew’s main job role is to increase website traffic to the National Club Golfer website via our email and social media channels as well as driving entries to grow our NCG Top 100s Tour events amongst other tasks.

Not one to change his equipment too often, Matthew currently plays the TaylorMade M2 driver which has lasted the test of time in his bag. Elsewhere, you’ll find him using the TaylorMade Stealth 2 three-wood with a Ping G425 Crossover 2-iron to aid his long game.

Through his 4-iron to Gap Wedge, Matthew uses the Ping i500 irons accompanied by Ping’s Glide 3.0 56-degree and 60-degree wedges.

Another club that has stood the test of time in his bag is a Nike Method Core MC-3i putter which has had to have the SuperStroke grip changed at least three times. Ball of choice is the Titleist ProV1.
