TOURNAMENT OVERVIEW

SEPTEMBER 17-20, 2020

U.S. Open

Location & Course Information

MAMARONECK, N.Y. WINGED FOOT GOLF CLUB Designed by A.W. Tillinghast and opened in 1923, the West Course at Winged Foot is one of the most challenging courses in the nation. It hosted the U.S. Open in 1929, 1959, 1974, 1984 and 2006 and the PGA Championship in 1997. Yardage: 7,469; par 70.

Notable Course Features

At 469 yards, the 18th hole doesn’t require a long-iron approach in today’s game, but with its tight, turning fairway and a small green that is difficult to hit, chip or putt on, it ranked as the toughest par 4 on the course in 2020 with a 4.402 scoring average.

“As difficult as this golf course was presented, I played it beautifully. Even through the rough, I was still able to manage my game and hit it to correct sides of the greens.” — Bryson DeChambeau
