The World Cup 2018 is not the only sporting tournament to kick off on Thursday, June 14, with the US Open 2018 golf tournament also starting on the day.
It will be a particularly special major with the legendary Tiger Woods returning to the Shinnecock Hills course for the first time since 2015.
As if the tournament wasn’t exciting enough, Woods will be partnered with the two current best players in the world, No.1 Justin Thomas and No.2 Dustin Johnson.
That’s not the only exciting draw—Rory McIlroy will partner with Jordan Spieth and Phil Mickelson.
Here is all you need to know about the US Open 2018 Golf tournament including when it’s on, tee times of everyone including Tiger Woods and Jordan Spieth, odds and how to watch on TV.
When is the US Open 2018
The US Open 2018 Golf tournament runs between June 14-17, 2018.
Where is the US Open 2018?
The US Open 2018 will be on the Shinnecock Hills golf course in Long Island, New York.
The last time the course was home to the US Open was back in 2004. During that year’s tournament play actually had to be suspended during the final round in order to water the seventh green, which was described as ‘ridiculous’ and ‘unplayable’.
Shinnecock was one of two US Open gold courses to be under 7,000 yards, with the other being Merion in 2013.
Who is playing in the US Open 2018?
This year’s tournament will see the return of Tiger Woods, who will play against the world’s best golfers including Jordan Spieth, Justin Thomas, Dustin Johnson, Rory McIlroy, Jason Day, Justin Rose, Rickie Fowler, Hideki Matsuyama.
Last year’s winner Brooks Koepka returns, as does Phil Mickelson, who is seeking his first US Open win to complete a career Grand Slam. Mickelson has been the runner-up six times.
Britain’s Tommy Fleetwood, who came fourth at last year’s event, also returns.
What are the First and second round tee times?
McIlroy, Mickelson and Spieth are paired together for the first two rounds and will tee off at 08.02am local time (1.02pm BST) on Thursday, June 14.
Defending champion Brooks Koepka is paired with two-time Masters champion Bubba Watson and former world No.1 Jason Day. They tee off from the first at 07.40 local time (12.40 BST).
