Founded in 1891 on Long Island in New York state, Shinnecock Hills is one of the United States’ oldest courses. It has hosted this tournament in each of the past three centuries; 2018 will be its fifth time. In the grand tradition of the U.S. Open, its links-style layout will provide one of golf's ultimate tests, demanding players wield all 14 clubs with unerring accuracy.

Brooks Koepka

The U.S. Open

The 2018 U.S. Open champion does things his way. On turning professional in 2012 after an outstanding college career at Florida State University, Koepka honed his craft in Europe, winning rookie of the year in 2014. Fit and methodical, he triumphed at Shinnecock Hills, winning the 118th U.S. Open Championship, and becoming its first back-to-back winner in 29 years.

Since his debut as a professional, US golfer Jordan Spieth has swiftly made a name for himself. In 2015, with his victories at the Masters Tournament and the U.S. Open, he became the youngest player in history to win the first two Majors of the year. In 2017, he took home the coveted Claret Jug after winning The Open, his third Major.

Justin Thomas had a stellar 2017 in which he was named PGA TOUR® Player of the Year on the back of five tournament victories, including his first Major, at the PGA Championship. He made history at last year's U.S. Open at Erin Hills, carding the lowest score in relation to par in tournament history with a breathtaking nine-under 63 in the third round. Thomas enters this year's tournament at the top of the world rankings and is one of the leading contenders for the 2018 title.

Tiger Woods

The U.S. Open

As a 21-year-old, he changed the game, winning the 1997 Masters by a record 12 shots. Four years later at the same tournament, Woods completed the so-called Tiger Slam, having won all four Majors in succession. With 14 Majors to his name, second only to Jack Nicklaus (18), and records for most consecutive and total weeks as World No. 1, he is one of the most successful golfers of all time.
