Father’s Day is about doing what dads love. What could be better than kicking back and watching the 2014 USGA’s U.S. Open? Considered the universal gift to dads everywhere, the U.S. Open is held every year the weekend of Father’s Day, with the tournament concluding its final round Sunday evening. This year’s U.S. Open is being held in North Carolina on course Pinehurst No. 2, the site of two previous U.S. Open tournaments.
Watching the U.S. Open should get everyone excited for the great golf available here at Verrado with its Championship Golf Course and Club tucked into the foothills of the White Tank Mountains. It was rated by Golf Digest as “The Number One Golf Course in Phoenix”. Victory will promise new, equally exciting golf experiences for golfers looking for exceptional play in an iconic landscape.
The U.S. Open is the second of the four major championships, which include the Masters Tournament – held yearly at the Augusta National Golf Club in Augusta Georgia, the British Open – also known as the Open Championship, and the PGA Championship.
The first U.S. Open Championship was played in 1895 at the Newport (R.I.) Golf Club over the course of a single day.
John J. McDermott was the first American winner of the U.S. Open in 1911, and he remains the youngest U.S. Open champion at 19 years, 10 months, 14 days old.
No player has won all 4 major championships in a single year, and only 5 players have won the Masters and the U.S. Open in the same year — let’s see if Bubba Watson will be added to the list.
We promise we’ll only send you the good stuff.
