Quick Bit: The 2022 U.S. Open continues Saturday. Here’s how to watch all the action.
The third major of the 2021-22 PGA Tour is here, and it could represent the final edition of the event as fans have come to know it.
The 2022 U.S. Open takes place amid an ongoing power struggle between the PGA Tour and the LIV Golf Invitational Series, the latter of which has pulled off a string of stunning coups to lure Dustin Johnson, Phil Mickelson, Patrick Reed, Bryson DeChambeau and more golfers to the new venture.
In response, the PGA Tour on June 9 suspended each of the 17 golfers who have defected to the LIV Series, making them ineligible for all non-major PGA Tour events. The majors, however, have discretion as to who qualifies for their tournaments, meaning each of those golfers who already have earned entry to the majors will remain eligible to play in them, at least for 2022.
It’s uncertain whether the same can be said for 2023, or if LIV will be able to lure yet more golfers from under the PGA Tour umbrella. Which, of course, makes this year’s U.S. Open a fascinating scene in more ways than one.
Of course, the future of golf is merely one storyline for the 2022 U.S. Open. There’s also the question of who can walk away with this year’s U.S. Open Championship Trophy. Jon Rahm will look for a repeat victory in Brookline, Mass., while Scottie Scheffler and Justin Thomas, winners of this year’s Masters and PGA Championship, respectively, will aim to add yet another major championship under their belts.
The Sporting News has everything you need to watch the U.S. Open action as it unfolds in Brookline, Mass.
