Beginning in 1895 as almost an afterthought to the U.S. Amateur, the U.S. Open golf tournament is now one of golf's four majors, and one of the most storied tournaments in the world.

The United States Golf Association holds the tournament, which is held on some of the top-rated and most well-respected golf courses around the country.

The 2014 U.S. Open will be held June 12-15 on the No. 2 Course at Pinehurst Resort in Pinehurst, North Carolina.
