The 2020 US Open golf tournament takes place Thursday, Sept. 17 through Sunday, Sept. 20. Round 1 coverage begins at 7:30 a.m. ET. The tournament is airing on NBC, Golf Channel and Peacock.
All the action of the 2020 U.S. Open golf tournament is about to get under way very shortly. And the four-day event, which is taking place at Winged Foot Golf Club in Mamaroneck, New York, will feature a deluge of the biggest and best names in the world of golf.
Tiger Woods, Rory McIlroy, Dustin Johnson, Justin Thomas, Bryson DeChambeau will all be in attendance. And let’s not forget that Phil Mickelson will be aiming to complete a career grand slam once again.

The tournament is a little late this year, having been originally scheduled for June. But thanks to the chaos caused by the coronavirus pandemic it was pushed back by a couple of months. And that makes it the second major gold tournament to get underway after the golfing season teed off again.
We're expecting some dramatic golfing action at the 2020 U.S. Open, as Johnson is on a hot streak of wins in recent weeks, from the Northern Trust tournament to the PGA Championship and Tour Championship over the recent weeks. But you can never count out Tiger, nor Mickelson's fire to add the U.S. Open to complete his grand slam of majors.
Winged Foot will be a tough challenge, though. Woods ranked it among the most difficult golf courses. Johnson agreed, telling ESPN (opens in new tab), "So far it seems very, very hard. One of the harder ones I've ever played. But it's fair. There's nothing really tricky about it. You've just got to hit good shots.''
