The USGA has established four “phone zones” for spectators along the course. This makes the event that much more fun and manageable for patrons attending. Tickets are still available to purchase.

4/17/15 - The US Open Golf major tournament is approximately two months away and players are preparing for the huge upcoming battle. Predictions for the future US Open title winner are all over the board, but currently Rory Mcllroy and Jordan Speith are topping the charts as crowd favorites. Coming up closely behind is Tiger Woods, Adam Scott, Dustin Johnson and Phil Mickelson. This year the US Open will be played at the Chambers Bay Golf Course in University Place, WA. There is much anticipation regarding this chosen golf course because it is brand new terrain. The last time the US Open was held at a spanking new course was back in 1970. Between the new course and line up of eligible players, this tournament is going to be mind-blowing. Tickets are available for purchase starting at $14.
5/28/14 - With the US Open just three weeks away, Tiger Woods confirmed the universal suspicion he would withdraw from his sixth major as he recovers from back surgery-- a procedure that has kept him out of competition for nearly three months. Irish import Shane Lowry finished one stroke behind Rory McIlroy at the BMW PGA Championship in England, while Adam Scott claimed victory in Texas. The three are among the top 60 ranked men in the world that will be awarded a US Open berth without having to qualify. US Open sectional qualifying is underway with a record number 10,127 players competing for a place at Pinehurst No. 2 in June. The 18-hole local qualifier was held in over 100 locales, with advanced players reaching the current 36-hole qualifier. While making it to Pinehurst No. 2 is the first step, Phil Mickelson is letting everyone know they'll have to get through him too. The optimistic veteran sent out the warning: "I'm going to win at least one US Open, maybe two."

The US Open Golf Tournament is held at a different location annually, this year it will commence at the beautiful Pinehurst Resort and Country Club (N.C.) with an all new scheme. For the first time, the Open will host a double header: the US Open and Women’s Open will go back-to-back in June of this year, and in what better venue than at legendary Pinehurst No. 2? The US Open will take place June 12-15, followed by the US Women’s Open from June 19-22. US Open Golf tickets are averaging $912 for an all-week pass, but you can get into the Gallery for $444 Monday through Sunday. This year, many are flocking to the luscious Pinehurst gardens and conveniently staying for both tournaments.
The last time Pinehurst hosted the US Open, Michael Campbell shot par to effectively defeat Tiger Woods by two strokes almost 10 years ago. The women were there in ’07, when Christie Kerr took the title. This year presents a great opportunity for the women to go toe-to-toe against the men on the same big-name course. Much talk this year surrounds Phil Mickelson on his course to completing a career Grand Slam—the only title missing being the US Open. Despite some spectacular play, Mickelson has never won the US Open to which he recently stated, “I actually believe I’ll win a couple,” starting in 2014.
