The stars of the PGA Tour have gathered in Mamaroneck, N.Y., to finally contest the postponed 2020 U.S. Open at storied Winged Foot Golf Club. Here’s everything you need to know to watch the event.

U.S. Open preview

The 2019-20 PGA Tour season might be in the rearview, but we still have two more major championships to decide before the calendar turns to 2021. The first happens this week, and if early reports are correct, it will be the toughest test the best in the game will face by a long shot.

The last time the U.S. Open came to Winged Foot, Phil Mickelson put on one of the gutsiest performances of his career, that is until the 72nd hole. Mickelson famously doubled the 18th on Sunday to hand Geoff Ogilvy a U.S. Open title. Phil, now 50 and a winner on the Champions Tour, has accumulated six runner-up finishes in the national championship. Could this be the week he finally completes the career grand slam?

Tour Confidential: Can anyone beat Dustin Johnson at Winged Foot?

By: GOLF Editors

Not if Dustin Johnson has anything to say about it. The World No. 1 and newly minted FedEx Cup champion doesn’t just have a fresh $15 million in his pocket, he also has the hard-earned confidence of his tremendous recent streak of play. DJ tied for second at the PGA Championship, then went 1-2-1 to close out the season.

And don’t forget about reigning Masters champion Tiger Woods. Before he finally gets a chance to defend that title at Augusta in November, Woods will try and add a fourth U.S. Open trophy to his collection. Tiger hasn’t looked his best in the limited amount of tournaments he’s played since the Tour returned to action in June. His last three finishes were T37 at the PGA Championship, T58 at the Northern Trust and T51 at the BMW Championship.
