2018 US Open Golf is set to tee off at Shinnecock Hills in less than 24 hours, starting off what should be one of the most intense and demanding tournaments of the year. This historic Long Island venue, built in 1892 and host of four other U.S. Open events, is nestled right along the Atlantic Ocean, whose unpredictable winds usually blowing between 10 and 15 miles per hour are often a key factor in determining the scores for competitors. The links style course will only play at 7,445 yards far from the longest U.S. Open Golf in history but nonetheless will still provide a uniquely difficult challenge.

The United States Golf Association wants the tournament to bring out the best in the 156 competitors.
U.S. Open Golf really is, we consider, golf’s ultimate test, and accuracy needed to play a bigger role in that,” said Mike Davis, the USGA chief executive, per Doug Ferguson of the Associated Press (h/t Columbus Dispatch).
Phil Mickelson said Shinnecock Hills looks like it has been prepared well and the golfers will face a strong and fair test.
“Skill is brought into play with the short game there,” Mickelson said. “I think that it will reward the best player as opposed to having luck be a big element on some of the bounces in the fairway, bounces around the green, how it comes out of the rough.
