US Open TV Coverage 2021

Thirteen years on from Tiger Woods' famous playoff victory at the 2008 US Open (opens in new tab), 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 (opens in new tab) 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 (opens in new tab) 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.

Given how the US Open is always interesting viewing because of how tough the courses play, you would be mad to miss any of it!

A golfer for most of his life, Sam started playing the game to prove he was the best player out of his father and two brothers.
He quickly became a golf equipment expert and has always been the one family and friends come to for buying advice, and spends a lot of his time putting golf gear, apparel and shoes to the test.  
He is a graduate of Swansea University where he studied History and American Studies, and he has been a part of the Golf Monthly team since February 2018. He also previously worked for World Soccer and Rugby World magazines.

A jack of all trades across print and digital formats, Sam now spends most of his time testing and looking after golf gear content for the website. He also oversees all Tour player content as well. 

Unfortunately, Sam is not a member of any club at the moment but regularly gets out on the golf course to keep up the facade of having a handicap of five.
