The PGA Tour moves on to the second major tournament of the 2016 season, as the Oakmont Country Club serves as host to the 2016 U.S. Open this weekend.
Oakmont is considered one of the toughest golf courses in the country, and it’s just outside of Pittsburgh, in the suburbs of Plum and Oakmont. In one of the stranger configurations on the Tour, seven holes on this course is set on one side of the Pennsylvania Turnpike, with 11 holes on the other side – connected by a big walking bridge to accommodate golfers and fans.
You’ll be interested to know that the Oakmont Country Club was built way back in 1903, and Johnny Miller holds the best score (63) for one round in the post-World War II era. He posted that score in 1973.
Note that CBS, NBC and the Golf Channel get a break this weekend, as Fox and Fox Sports 1 get the golf coverage for this weekend.
