2019 U.S. Open -- June 13-16

Facts and figures for the 119th U.S. Open golf championship:

Dates: June 13-16.

Site: Pebble Beach Golf Links.

The course: Designed by two amateur players, Jack Neville and Douglas Grant, Pebble Beach opened in 1919. Jack Nicklaus redesigned the par-3 fifth hole along Stillwater Cove for the 2000 U.S. Open. It was bought 20 years ago by a group that included Arnold Palmer, Clint Eastwood, Peter Ueberroth and Dick Ferris.

Length: 7,075 yards.

Par: 71 (35-36).

Cut: Top 60 players and ties.

Playoff (if necessary): Two-hole aggregate immediately after 72 holes are completed. Sudden-death if tied after aggregate.

Field: 156 players.

Purse: $12.5 million. Winner’s share: $2.16 million.

Defending champion: Brooks Koepka.

Last year: Koepka became the first player in 29 years to win back-to-back in the U.S. Open by closing with a 2-under 68 at Shinnecock Hills for a one-shot victory over Tommy Fleetwood. Koepka set himself up with a 72 in a third round so difficult the last 45 players to tee off failed to break par. The USGA pledged to put more water on the course, and Fleetwood responded with a 63. He finished when Koepka still had 11 holes to play. Koepka never lost the lead. He finished at 1-over 281.

U.S. Open champions at Pebble Beach: Jack Nicklaus (1972), Tom Watson (1982), Tom Kite (1992), Tiger Woods (2000), Graeme McDowell (2010).

Three in a row: Koepka will try to join Willie Anderson (1903-05) as the only players to win the U.S. Open three straight years.

Grand Slam, Part III: Phil Mickelson is the third player this year to try for the career Grand Slam, following Rory McIlroy at the Masters and Jordan Spieth at the PGA Championship. This is Mickelson’s fifth U.S. Open with a Grand Slam at stake.

Television (all times EDT):
Thursday-Friday, 9:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. (FS1), 4:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. (FOX)
Saturday, 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. (FOX)
Sunday, 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. (FOX).

edit: I think those ending times are short. I expect those times to go well into ET prime time.

Rory just won here, so I'm going with him.

Tremendous round by Woodland, finishing with the bomb.

Ootz was all over the place but it works. LOL.

Wide open weekend.

Woodland, Rose, and Koepka are playing so well today. Very entertaining.

I'd be shocked if it's not one of them winning it. All playing solid.

Should be a good Sunday.

Koepka is charging, picked up 2 shots net on Woodland so far.

Edit: Make that 3 shots. He has birdied 4 of the first 5 holes.

He's so good that even when he's in trouble, he's not really.

If he does win this, I think they should rename it the Brooks Koepka Open

Some credit to Woodland. He's playing the same as he did the first 3 rounds. Very solid golf.

He's been rock solid. Very impressed so far.

Always happens to me when I say stuff like that

Surprised that no one can make a run at him. Woodlands just not giving up anything.

What a fantastic putt by Woodland to finish it off!



Coming into this he was 0 for 7 in PGA events when leading after 54 holes.



I'd say he put that record to rest with this win.

Impressive job by Woodland. Koepka right on his heels but he didn't buckle.

That was definitely not Koepka's A game though. Still finishes 2nd. So he's finished 1-2-1-2 in the last 4 majors.
