The US Open 2017 will be launched in Wisconsin at Erin Hills for the first time in 117 years. Departure schedules will begin on Thursday, June 15, and will be completed on Father’s Day weekend on Sunday, June 18.
Erin Hills is the first US Open field played in a par 72 since the 1992 United States Open at Pebble Beach.
The course ranks as the longest ride in major championship history at 7,693 yards, depending on the day. Erin Hills has traditional elements and modern challenges in the open field of hills with almost no obstruction from the trees. The course features a series of blind shots and alter terrain to provide an extra challenge if the course length is not enough to test the course during the second major golf championship.
The US Open 2017 has a mixed field of veterans, young professionals, amateurs and some long distance qualifiers who will offer interesting rounds of play from the outset.
Phil Mickelson originally announced that he would miss the US Open to attend his daughter’s graduation. However, with scheduling and a little time support, Mickelson could simply make his start time set for Thursday afternoon.
Early favorites to watch include champion defending Dustin Johnson, who has the power to do well in the long, exhausting course. Johnson appears to be the first to win consecutive US titles since Curtis Strange in 1988-89. Also in his group are the recent United States champions Jordan Spieth and Martin Kaymer.
The last three Masters champions also grouped together with Bubba Watson, Adam Scott and Sergio Garcia leaving Thursday afternoon.
