See the complete list of golfers to win the US Open

 

The US Open is one of golf’s four major championships. It was first played in 1895 when Horace Rawlins won at Newport in Rhode Island.

Since the Englishman’s victory at America’s inaugural national championship, the trophy has been won by some of the game’s best-ever players including Jack Nicklaus, Tom Watson, Gary Player, Arnold Palmer and Tiger Woods. But this is only to name a few of the event’s 129-year history.

Below we have the full list of players who have won the US Open and each venue where they won it. From Rawlins to Wyndham Clark, from Myopia Hunt to Los Angeles Country Club.
