This year has been anything but normal. Along with the rest of the world, golf’s major tournament schedule has been. The Masters was moved from April to November, the PGA Championship was played in August instead of May, the British Open was canceled and the US Open was moved from June to September.
The US Open tees off on Thursday at Winged Foot Golf Club in Mamaroneck, New York, and will crown a champion at the conclusion of the fourth and final round on Sunday. With its narrow fairways, thick rough and tricky greens, Winged Foot is widely considered one of the most difficult courses in the world. And when it’s set up for a US Open, it might be the toughest test in golf. The course has hosted five previous US Opens, and only once — Fuzzy Zoeller in 1984 — has the winner posted a score below par.
The world’s top golfers will try to tame Winged Foot, including world No. 1 Dustin Johnson, defending champion Gary Woodland, Rory McIlroy, Bryson DeChambeau and Justin Thomas. Tiger Woods is attempting to win his 16th major title, while Phil Mickelson is once again looking for the one major title that has eluded him in his career. CBS ranks the top 20 favorites, lays out 10 storylines to follow and examines Tiger’s chances. Check out the US Open leaderboard for all of the tee times and pairings.
