U.S. Open History
A staple in the professional golfing circuit since 1895, the U.S. Open is the second of four major championships in the sport. Traditionally held in mid-June, the field of 156 players dwindles through the weekend of Father's Day, with the final tournament day being held that Sunday each year.
The first-ever U.S. Open was held at Newport Country Club in Newport, Rhode Island in 1895. The 36-hole competition was held over just one day on October 4 and 21-year-old Horace Rawlins of Shanklin, England was crowned the winner. The tournament was dominated by talent from across the pond up until 1911, when John J. McDermott became the first American-born player to take the title. Over the last century, the tournament has largely seen U.S. golfers claim the championship. Since 1950, just six other countries outside of the U.S. have claimed winners. South Africa has displayed five of those winners since 1965.
The top four finalists are automatically invited to the following season's Masters Tournament, which is typically held at Augusta National Golf Club in Georgia. The last U.S.-born player to win the tournament was Webb Simpson in 2011. 2014's winner was Martin Kaymer, a native of Germany who took the title at Pinehurst Resort in North Carolina. The winner's purse has exceeded $1 million each year since 2002, with Tiger Woods being the first player to receive a seven-digit prize in earnings that year. Kaymer's win in 2014 was the biggest yet at $1.62 million and the pot will likely increase in 2015.
