US Open TV Coverage 2021
Thirteen years on from Tiger Woods’ famous playoff victory at the 2008 US Open, the event has returned to the South Course for the 2021 US Open this week.
There are plenty of storylines heading into the event chief among which is can Phil Mickelson finally win the tournament? It is the final Major he needs to complete the career Grand Slam and after his victory at the 2021 PGA Championship, it seems all logic has gone out of the window so anything is possible.
Or maybe Bryson DeChambeau can go back-to-back after his win at Winged Foot last year?
Then you have a whole host of stars lining up to etch their names into history, with the only notable omission from the field being Tiger Woods because of his car crash.
