GOLF

U.S. Open

Site: Southampton, N.Y.

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

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

Television: Today-Friday, 9:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. (FS1), 4:30 p.m. to 7:30 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.

Next year: Pebble Beach.
