Description The United States Open Championship, commonly known as the U.S. Open, is the annual open national championship of golf in the United States. It is the third of the four major championships in golf, and is on the official schedule of both the PGA Tour and the European Tour. Since 1898 the competition has been 72 holes of stroke play (4 rounds on an 18-hole course), with the winner being the player with the lowest total number of strokes. It is staged by the United States Golf Association (USGA) in mid-June, scheduled so that, if there are no weather delays, the final round is played on the third Sunday. The U.S. Open is staged at a variety of courses, set up in such a way that scoring is very difficult, with a premium placed on accurate driving. As of 2019 the U.S. Open awards a $12.5 million purse, the largest of all four major championships and tied for largest of all PGA Tour events (The Players Championship also with $12.5 million).
The 2020 United States Open Championship was the 120th U.S. Open. It was played over the West Course at Winged Foot Golf Club in Mamaroneck, New York. Originally scheduled for June 18–21, the tournament was postponed to September 17–20 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. This marked the first time the U.S. Open was held in September since 1913.
Bryson DeChambeau won the tournament with a 72-hole score of 274 (−6), six strokes ahead of runner-up Matthew Wolff. It was DeChambeau's first career major championship victory; he had never finished better than a tie for 15th in five previous U.S. Open appearances. Wolff, at 21 seeking to become the youngest U.S. Open champion since Bobby Jones in 1923, and the first since Francis Ouimet in 1913 to win in his tournament debut, took a two-shot lead into the final round but fell behind DeChambeau with a final-round score of five-over 75.
