The 2020 U.S. Open is set to tee off Thursday at the Winged Foot West course in Mamaroneck, N.Y. The competition is typically scheduled for mid-June, but due to the coronavirus pandemic, the United States Golf Association had to push it back to mid-September.

As of 2019, the U.S. Open awards a $12.5 million purse, which is the largest of all four major championships and is tied for the largest of all PGA Tour events (The Players Championship also has a $12.

5 million purse).

Gary Woodland is the reigning U.S. Open champion, having won his first and only major title last year at Pebble Beach. He is currently ranked 26th in the world and is at 60-1 odds to reclaim his crown. World No. 1 and FedEx Cup champion Dustin Johnson enters Thursday's play at 17-2 in the latest 2020 U.S. Open odds.

Tiger Woods has won the event three times, in 2008, 2002 and 2000.


Here are the last five winners of the U.S. Open tournament.

Gary Woodland won the 2019 U.S. Open by three strokes over world number one Brooks Koepka. Woodland had a 72-hole winning score, which was 13-under-par 271, and it was the lowest score relative to par since 2011 and it included an impressive stretch of 34 straight holes without a bogey.

At Shinnecock Hills Golf Club in Shinnecock Hills, N.Y., defending champion Brooks Koepka shot a final round 68 for 281 (+1) to win his second straight U.S. Open, one stroke ahead of runner-up Tommy Fleetwood. Koepka was only the third golfer to defend his title since World War II, following Ben Hogan in 1951 and Curtis Strange in 1989.

Brooks Koepka won his first major title at the 2017 U.S. Open. He shot a 16-under-par 272, which was four strokes ahead of runners-up Brian Harman and Hideki Matsuyama. Koepka's score was tied for the lowest ever at the championship, which was set in 2011 by Rory McIlroy.

At Chambers Bay in Washington, Jordan Spieth won his first U.S. Open and consecutive major titles (he won the Masters earlier that year), one stroke ahead of runners-up Dustin Johnson and Louis Oosthuizen. At 21 years old, Spieth became the youngest U.S. Open champion since Bobby Jones won it in 1923.
