Jon Rahm looks to defend his maiden major championship title as the U.S. Open heads from the west coast to the east coast for 2022.
This year's U.S. Open will be contested at The Country Club at Brookline, a return to the Boston-area course for the U.S. Open for the first time since 1988.
FIELD NOTES: FedExCup leader Scottie Scheffler looks to become just the sixth golfer in history to win both the Masters and the U.S. Open in the same season. The world No.1 has won four times already this season including the Green Jacket… Justin Thomas looks to win back-to-back majors after capturing the Wanamaker Trophy in May. Like Scheffler, Thomas is looking to join five other golfers as winners of the PGA Championship and U.S. Open in the same season… Jon Rahm returns to defend his U.S. Open title from a year ago. Only two golfers in the last 50 years have gone back-to-back at the U.S. Open… Rory McIlroy hopes to capture his first major championship since 2014. In that timeframe he's had 15 top-10 finishes in majors… There was plenty of intrigue, drama, and suspense on the “Longest Day in Golf” last Monday, with qualifiers happening across North America. Here's a deeper look at who got through… Tiger Woods will not tee it up as he continues to rehab his body. He returned to action after a 14-month recovery to make the cut in the Masters. He found the weekend at the PGA Championship but ultimately withdrew after the third round… Eighty-nine golfers were exempt into the U.S. Open and 66 made it in via qualifying… There is still one spot left to be filled. If the winner of the RBC Canadian Open has won a PGA TOUR event in the last 12 months but isn't otherwise qualified, they get in. Otherwise, it will go to the first player on the alternate list.
