Everything you need to know about the 2022 US Open originally appeared on NBC Sports Boston
The third major golf championship of the year is underway.
The US Open is filled with challenges, allowing only the best in the game to be victorious. Rightfully so, the tournament has the largest championship purse of all four majors.
The annual tournament’s first edition was in 1895 when the event was on a nine-hole course (36-hole competition) and held in a single day. In 1898, the event transitioned to an 18-hole course (72-hole competition) over two days. Currently, the event is four days long and features a field of 156 golfers.
Jon Rahm was crowned US Open champion last year as he became the first player from Spain to win the event. The win launched Rahm to No. 1 in the Official World Golf Ranking.
Two rounds into this year’s tournament, Rahm finds himself in contention for a second straight US Open victory. At the top of the leaderboard is a tie between Collin Morikawa and Joel Dahmen at 5-under. They are followed by Rahm, Rory McIlroy, Hayden Buckley, Beau Hosler and Aaron Wise, who are all tied for third at 4-under.
Phil Mickelson entered the tournament surrounded by a cloud of controversy after joining the Saudi-backed LIV tour. He struggled out of the gate, shooting 8-over in the first round and 3-over in the second round. His 11-over score through 36 holes put him seven strokes shy of the cut line.
