Situated in La Jolla, just north of San Diego, Torrey Pines golf course is a seaside parkland golf course overlooking the Pacific Ocean. Established in 1992, the venue is unique in that it is owned by the city of San Diego. The South Course is one of the best public golf courses in the country. The 2021 event will be the second time Torrey Pines has hosted the event and its third USGA championship. As of 2019, the USGA provides a USD $12.5 million prize purse, which is the largest of all four major championships and tied for largest of all PGA Tour events with The Players Championship. In 2020, Bryson deChambeau made history at Winged Foot Golf Club by winning the 120th U.S. Open by 6 shots. Be at Torrey Pines in 2021 to witness deChambeau defend his title.
U.S. Open Format
With play occurring over a full week, the tournament days are Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday. The 4-day championship consists of 18-holes a day. The format for play is stroke play, where players count their shots each day and the aim of having the fewest shots overall over the four days of play. The U.S. Open is available to any amateur or professional with a USGA Handicap Index not exceeding 1.4. Players may obtain a place by being fully exempt or by competing sucessfully in qualifying. To be exempt from playing in qualifiers and be granted a spot in the field, golfers must have competed and won various worldwide golf tournaments or high rankings.
The field begins with 156 players, about half of which compete in qualifiers, the others are exempt and granted a place automatically by their classification of exemption. For the weekend, the top 60 players in the field (including ties) make the cut. If there is a tie at the end, a play-off will ensue; this used to be 18-holes which was seen in 2008 at Torrey Pines when Tiger Woods beat Rocco Mediate. From 2018, the USGA Open play-off follows a play-off of a two-hole aggregate with the leader after two holes crowned champion, followed by sudden death if players are still tied.
