U.S. Open History

 
The U.S. Open is the second of four major championships in golf, as this tournament began in 1895. The 2014 U.S. Open championship was hosted by Pinehurst Resort in Pinehurst, North Carolina.

Four golfers have won this tournament four times each, including Willie Anderson, Bobby Jones, Ben Hogan, and Jack Nicklaus (last win came in 1980). Tiger Woods has finished on top of the U.S. Open leaderboard three times in his career, with his last victory coming in 2008.

The 114th U.S. Open at Pinehurst No. 2 was a runaway, as Martin Kaymer set a U.S. Open record with back-to-back 65's in the first two rounds, posting the lowest-ever score (130) in the first 36 holes of the U.S. Open. While he faltered somewhat in the third round with a 72, no one was ever really able to get within arm's length of the German, who has been ranked No. 1 in the world at one point of his career.

The eight-stroke lead was Tiger-esque, and really came out of nowhere for bettors, as he was 40/1 long shot entering the second major of the 2014 PGA Tour season..

The 116th U.S. Open will be played at Chambers Bay in University Place, Washington.
