U.S. Open Championship Information:

The U.S. Open Championship is always held annually in mid-June, with the final day always landing on Father’s Day. It is just one of four major championships in golf and the event always staged by the United States Golf Association. The U.S. Open is held on a variety of courses and is usually the hardest scoring even of the four main championships.

The top 15 finishers at the U.S. Open are automatically exempt from qualifying for the following year’s event. And the top eight are automatically invited to the following season’s Masters.

The 2007 winner was Angel Cabrera of Argentina, who shot a 285 (+5) at the Oakmont Country Club in Oakmont, Pennsylvania. Four players have won the event four times: Willie Anderson (1901, 1903, 1904, 1905), Bobby Jones (1923, 1926, 1929, 1930), Ben Hogan (1948, 1950, 1951, 1953) and Jack Nicklaus (1962, 1967, 1972, 1980).

American golfers haven’t faired well of late at the U.S. Open. A streak of four consecutive non-American winners has occurred from 2004 to 2007. It’s the first time since 1910 where an American golfer has not won the event in four consecutive years.
