Site: Southampton, N.Y.

Course: Shinnecock Hills GC. Yardage: 7,445. Par: 70.

Purse: $12 million. Winner’s share: $1.26 million.

Television: Thu.-Friday, 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. (FS1), 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. (FOX); Saturday, 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. (FOX); Sunday, 11 a.m. to 8:30 p.m. (FOX).

Defending champion: Brooks Koepka.

Notes: Shinnecock Hills is hosting its fifth U.S. Open and fourth since 1986. It held the second U.S. Open in 1896, and then went 90 years until its next one. ... Dustin Johnson returned to No. 1 in the world by winning the FedEx St. Jude Classic. This is the second straight year he is No. 1 at the U.S. Open, ending a streak of six straight years with a different No. 1 at this major. ... Tiger Woods is playing the U.S. Open for the first time since 2015. He has not had a top 10 in the U.S. Open since he tied for fourth at Pebble Beach in 2010. ... This is final year of Woods being exempt to the U.S. Open as a past champion. His last victory — and last major — was 10 years ago at Torrey Pines. ... Phil Mickelson tied for fourth and tied for second in his two previous U.S. Opens at Shinnecock Hills. ... Justin Thomas, Justin Rose, Jon Rahm, Jordan Spieth and Rory McIlroy have a mathematical chance to reach No. 1 this week. ... Sergio Garcia is playing in his 19th consecutive U.S. Open, the longest active streak. ... Woods and Mickelson are among 19 players who played in the last U.S. Open at Shinnecock Hills.

Next year: Pebble Beach.



Site: Grand Rapids, Mich.

Course: Blythefield CC. Yardage: 6,451. Par: 71.

Purse: $2 million. Winner’s share: $300,000.

Television: Thu.-Sunday, 1:30-4:30 p.m. (Golf Channel).

Defending champion: Brooke Henderson.

Last week: Annie Park won the ShopRite LPGA Classic.

Race to CME Globe leader: Ariya Jutanugarn.

Notes: Along with winning on the LPGA Tour for the first time, Park became the fourth American to win this year. That ties with South Korea for most victories by a country. Thailand has three victories. ... The final two rounds last year was a par 69 at Blythefield because of standing water in the fifth fairway that required the par 5 to be converted to a par 3. ... Park was No. 236 in the women’s world ranking, making her the first player outside the top 100 to win on the LPGA Tour this year. ... U.S. Women’s Open champion Ariya Jutanugarn is in the field after missing last week. It was the only LPGA Tour event the Thai has missed this year. ... All four past champions of the Meijer LPGA Classic are in the field — Henderson, Sei Young Kim, Lexi Thompson and Mirim Lee. ... The field also includes Michelle Wie and Lydia Ko. ... Morgan Pressel is playing this week, keeping her from Fox Sports broadcasting duties at the U.S. Open.
