This years U.S. Open Golf Championship will be held at the historic Olympic Club, in San Francisco. The dates for the Championship are June 14-17, 2012.
The U.S. Open has been hosted at this venue four times before. They were in 1955, 1966, 1987 and 1998. This event presents golfers around the world with the chance to watch the world’s best professionals compete on this classic and prestigious stage, and to play some of America’s finest public golf courses including Pasatiempo Golf Club, CordeValle, Pebble Beach, and Spyglass Hill.
It really is a truly beautiful setting in this part of the world, and all the top players love playing down the west coast of America with most of it’s courses having spectacular ocean views.
All the players will be looking to hone there game in time for June the 14th and will all be looking to lift that huge trophy. McIlroy will be defending this time around. I don’t know what to expect from him after his lackluster Masters performance a couple of weeks back. I get the feeling it will be much of the same?
I’m sure all the talk will be on him and Tiger again, let’s just hope they don’t let us down this time and give us something to get excited about!
I will be covering this tournament in more detail nearer the time.
Until then….. Happy golfing
