The United States Open Championship is one of the four 'majors' (major championships) in men's golf. The event dates back to 1895 where it was first played on a nine-hole course in Newport, Rhode Island. Since 2007, the men's event has once again been held at the prestigious Oakmont Country Club in Oakmont, Pennsylvania. Oakmont has hosted more major championships than any other course in the United States. It is regarded as one of the most difficult courses in the country and recently voted the fourth best course by Golf Digest.
