Golf This Week: June 10 – 16, 2024

PGA TOUR: The US Open

The PGA TOUR plays the US Open.

Wyndham Clark is the reigning champion.

There’s a lot of confusion on the interwebs — particularly among LIV “fans” (or more likely people in China paid to pretend to be LIV fans) — about the relationship between the US Open and the PGA TOUR. For the record, the PGA TOUR controls exactly ZERO of the Majors. The USGA runs the US Open.

The first US Open was held in 1895. The PGA TOUR did not come into existence until 1968, when the playing division of the PGA Of America split into its own entity.
