Established in 1895, the US Open is the second of the four major championships taking place in the golfing calendar and is co-sanctioned by both the PGA Tour and the European Tour. It attracts the leading golfers from both tours in one of the most hotly-anticipated tournaments of the season.
Staged at various courses around the United States, the US Open is regarded as one of the most difficult tournaments to win, but scrolling through the roll of honour highlights the calibre of golfer needed to lift the coveted trophy.
One idiosyncrasy of the US Open is that unlike the other three majors if there is a tie, the players at the top of leaderboard will play an 18-hole playoff rather just a solitary hole. If the players are then tied after the 18 holes, they will then battle it out in a sudden-death hole. The last time this happened came in 2008 when Tiger Woods and Rocco Mediate tied for the lead and Woods eventually won in a sudden-death hole after the players had tied in the fifth round.
