GolfWRX is live from the 2014 U.S. Open at Pinehurst Resort and Country Club in the Village of Pinehurst, N.C. The No. 2 Course, designed by Donald Ross, will play as a par-70 measuring 7,562 yards, more than 300 yards longer than it played for the 2005 U.S. Open.
Pinehurst is most memorable for the late Payne Stewart’s 18-foot putt to save par and win the 1999 U.S. Open Championship over Phil Mickelson and Tiger Woods. His often imitated fist-pump pose with an arm extended and leg kicked out was turned into a statue and stands on the premises in remembrance.
This year’s field will include all of the world’s top-ranked players as expected, minus Tiger Woods, who has slipped to No. 4 in the Official World Golf Rankings. Justin Rose (No. 9 in the OWGR) will be defending his 2013 U.S. Open victory at Merion Golf Club, but he will have to fend off the worlds best, including Adam Scott (No. 1), Henrik Stenson (No. 2), Bubba Watson (No. 3), Matt Kuchar (No. 5) and Rory McIlroy (No. 6).
The 156-player field will also include a number of sectional qualifiers from around the country, as well as two international qualifying sites, England and Japan.
Check out our photos from this season’s second major championship.
