The 2017 US Open begins with Round 1 from Erin Hills on Thursday, June 15 and here’s all the info you need to watch
Dustin Johnson and the best of the PGA Tour are readying themselves for the 2017 US Open. On Thursday, June 15, Round 1 will tee off from Erin Hills in Erin, WI for what should be a thrilling rendition of the second major championship of the year. If anything, this tournament is always unpredictable. However, the 2017 US Open could be more so than even in years passed.
Erin Hills is the big X-factor that everyone should be looking at this week. It’s a young course that many of the golfers in the field are unfamiliar with. What’s more, it’s also a golf course that’s almost absurdly long. That means the big hitters should look to pull out the driver more often than normal. What’s more, it should bring about an unpredictable four days of golf — but especially on Thursday for Round 1.
The aforementioned Johnson is the defending US Open Champion, so he’ll look to defend. He’s been red-hot this year. However, Jon Rahm can say the same. Meanwhile, Rory McIlroy has resurfaced and looks to get right back into form. Throw guys like Jordan Spieth and Rickie Fowler into the mix and this tournament is loaded.
So what happens at Erin Hills this week for the 2017 US Open? It’s truthfully hard to say. But what is for sure is that FOX will have the broadcast of what should be a great tournament. As such, there are a couple of ways to stream the action online. Fox Sports Go and Fubo.TV are both options, but both require some sort of subscription.
