A bumper field of 156 players will descend on Torrey Pines Golf Course in San Diego, California for the 121st United States Open Championship.
Bryson DeChambeau is the defending champion having landed his maiden major title with a six-under-par victory in last year’s tournament at Winged Foot Golf Club in Mamaroneck, New York.
The big-hitting American is among the favourites with Paddy Power to retain his crown and he’ll be eager to land his second title of the season after winning the Arnold Palmer Invitational in March.
DeChambeau pocketed $2.25m – around £1.5m – for his US Open win in 2020. A tidy sum for four days of work!

It’s estimated whoever triumphs this week will earn the same sum of cash from a $12.5m – just shy of £9m – prize fund split between the field.
The U.S. Open is the third of the four majors to take place in 2021.
Hideki Matsuyama became the first Japanese male golfer to win a major when he edged out Will Zalatoris in the Masters in April.
Matsuyama took home a cheque worth $2.07m (£1.46m) with a record fund worth $11.5m (£8.12m) being split between the rest.
The USPGA Championship was held at Ocean Course last month and Phil Mickelson became the oldest player in history to win a major.
The 50-year-old claimed $2.16m (£1.525m) in prize money from a $12m (£8.475m) pot.
