Amazing History of the US Open Golf Championship
The US Open kicked off on 4 October 1895, as a 9-hole golf course located at Newport Golf and Country Club, Rhode Island. At the time, 1 amateur golfer and 10 pro golfers competed in the 36-hole tournament. Horace Rawlins won the contest and a prize of $150. The current format of 18 holes taking place over 4 days was put into effect in 1965.
In 2012, a Chinese player named Andy Zhang became the youngest-ever U.S. Open golf competitor at the age of 14. By 2014, some 10,127 golfers qualified for this golf Major – a record. With so many entrants, golf bettors turn to leading bookmakers like 888sport to get the best US Open odds.
Over the years, many US Open records have been shattered by legendary golfers. The youngest ever winner was John J. McDermott in 1911 at just 19 years of age, while the oldest ever winner was Hale Irwin in 1990, at 45 years of age. In 2000, Tiger Woods made history by winning the US Open by a margin of 15 strokes, and Arnold Palmer defied critics to come from 7 behind and win the U.S. Open in 1960.
Of all the professional golfers who have won all 4 Golf Majors, none of them have completed the Grand Slam. Many feel that Bobby Jones should qualify, but that was during the pre-Masters era. Tiger Woods succeeded in winning 4 consecutive Majors, known as the ‘Tiger Slam’, but not in the same year. 5 pro golfers throughout history have notched up wins on all 4 majors, including Tiger Woods, Jack Nicklaus, Gene Sarazen, Gary Player, and Ben Hogan.
