The annual open national golf championship in the United States is called the United States Open Championship, or simply the US Open. It is officially scheduled on the PGA Tour and the European Tour schedules and is the third of the four major golf tournaments for men.


The competition has been 72 holes of stroke play (4 rounds on an 18-hole course) since 1898. The United States Golf Association (USGA) organises it in the middle of June, with the final round taking place on the third Sunday, assuming there are no weather delays. The US Open is held on a variety of courses, all of which are designed to make scoring extremely challenging and to emphasise precise driving.

US Open Field List 2024

With the 124th US Open quickly approaching and the tournament returning to Pinehurst No. 2, there will be lots of speculation about the players we will see on the greens.

Three-time champion Tiger Woods will return to the USGA's main event after his special exemption. Although Wyndham Clark was an improbable winner a year ago, he is one of nine previous champions competing at Pinehurst. 156 players are scheduled to compete over four testing days, making it an open field in every sense of the word.
