What is the U.S. Open? Well, it's only one of golf's four major championships, with the winner taking home over $2 million dollars! The U.S. Open has been held at Pebble Beach five previous times. Legends like Jack Nicklaus, Tom Watson, and Tiger Woods have won this event when it's been held at Pebble Beach — and Tiger will be hoping to bring home his fourth U.S. Open win this June.
Pebble Beach turns 100
Founded in 1919, Pebble Beach truly is a golf mecca. Architect Jack Neville designed the course, with the mission of placing as many holes along the coastline as possible. Over the years, the course has been periodically revised in order to stick to this vision.
The PGA Tour has held several events at Pebble Beach Golf Links — and it's no wonder why. The course is considered among the most beautiful in the world, with its 18 holes hugging the rocky coastline that juts right out into the Pacific Ocean. But don't let the serene surroundings fool you: This course is quite challenging and brings out the best in the pros who attempt to conquer it.
Golf's best face-off
All of today's top golf stars will be turning out for the 2019 U.S. Open. Recent U.S. Open winners like Dustin Johnson, Rory McIlroy, Jordan Spieth, and two-time reigning champ Brooks Koepka will all be competing. And most notably, Tiger Woods, fresh off of his inspiring victory at the Masters Tournament, will take on golf's best in hopes of winning his fourth U.S. Open.
A win at Pebble Beach this June would make Tiger one of only five golfers to win the U.S. Open four times. It would also be his sixteenth major championship win, putting him only two major wins behind golf legend Jack Nicklaus. It goes without saying that all eyes will be on Tiger.
