Due to the unprecedented nature of the COVID-19 pandemic and the continued uncertainty surrounding it, the 120th U.S. Open Championship, originally scheduled to be contested June 18-21 at Winged Foot Golf Club in Mamaroneck, N.Y., is being rescheduled to Sept. 17-20 at Winged Foot.
“We are hopeful that postponing the championship will offer us the opportunity to mitigate health and safety issues while still providing us with the best opportunity to conduct the U.S. Open this year,” said Mike Davis, CEO of the USGA. “We are incredibly thankful to the membership and staff at Winged Foot for their flexibility and support. We are also grateful for the wonderful collaboration among the professional tours and other majors in working through a complicated schedule.”
The USGA is currently evaluating how the postponement will affect exemption categories, and definitive changes will be communicated as soon as possible. As previously announced, the USGA will strive to conduct qualifying that fits health and safety guidelines while accommodating the rescheduled championship dates.
