The US Open is actually the second major that takes place every year, with two other majors following it later in 2016. It is typically held in mid June ever year, and if all goes to plan, the fourth round is played on the 3rd Sunday in the month. Weather can have an impact on this however, and if a day is rained out, then the rounds might have to be slightly delayed. The US Open was actually established in 1895, and so has been in operation for well over a hundred years.
The event is played on a different course every year. In 2015, it was played at University Place in Washington. This was a Par 70 course, at a total length of 7,585 yards. The tournament record score is held by Rory McIlroy, with both of his records being set in 2011. The aggregate record is 268, with a Par record of -16. The reigning champion is Jordan Spieth of the United States, who will hopefully come back to defend his title in 2016.
