An insider’s pass to the world’s greatest golf tournament!

 

The U.S. Open, generally considered the preeminent golf championship in the world, is contested on some of the nation's finest courses—from the rolling hills of Winged Foot to the famed fairways of Baltusral to the breathtaking holes of Pebble Beach that overlook Carmel Bay. Tom Kite describes the tournament as "without a doubt the most physically, psychologically, and emotionally exhausting event we play," while Jack Nicklaus ranks it as the number one major.

One Week in June: The U.S. Open takes fans behind the scenes, giving them a rare and privileged peek into the tournament: its glorious history, finest moments, and even its quirkiest happenings. It features pieces by many of our best-known sportswriters, from Grantland Rice to Dan Jenkins and Rick Reilly, as well as the words of the golf greats themselves.
