Welcome to Watch US Open Golf 2018 Live Stream Online Free HD TV Coverage
The U.S. Open returns to a place in search of redemption. The last time the U.S. Open was at Shinnecock Hills, in 2004, things got out of hand, when the seventh green became nearly unplayable and the USGA had to take the blame. While the course and the USGA look to redeem themselves, the players come here in search of a major. Some seeking their first. Some seeking a return to glory. Some looking to add to already impressive trophy cases.
The second major of the 2018 golf season is here with plenty of stars among the 156-man field set to take on Shinnecock Hills in New York for the 118th U.S. Open. Our country’s national championship will be decided over four days with Phil Mickelson looking to complete his career slam as Tiger Woods returns to the event for the first time since 2015.
While playing in the U.S. Open is a dream for many, simply being able to watch golf played at this level is an incredible treat each year, and we here at CBS Sports are thrilled to bring you wall-to-wall coverage of the U.S. Open throughout the week.
There is an opportunity for top-ranked Dustin Johnson to continue his roll in 2018, but plenty of top-tier competitors will be breathing down his neck. Brooks Koepka is looking to repeat after a tremendous performance at Erin Hills one year ago, while former winners Jordan Spieth, Justin Rose and Rory McIlroy — among others — are all in the field.
Enough talking about it. Here’s how you can watch as much U.S. Open as possible throughout the week. Be sure to stick with CBS Sports for live coverage all four days.The 2018 US Open is set to tee off on Thursday, June 14 at Shinnecock Hills Golf Club in Southampton, New York. I like to tune into the final round on Sunday each year because: A) it’s Father’s Day and lying on the couch to watch golf is a total dad move, and B) the course is set up to be so difficult that the world’s greatest golfers occasionally look mortal, making a terrible golfer like me momentarily feel better about himself.
What are the storylines for this, the 118th US Open?
Well, Tiger Woods is back playing tournament golf again, which is fun whether you are rooting for him or against him. It’s been a decade since Tiger won his third US Open title, but he looks healthy and is again a threat.
The only major title that has escaped Phil Mickelson is the US Open, where he has finished runner-up six times, including in 2004 at Shinnecock Hills. Can Lefty complete his trophy case with a win this weekend on Long Island?
Jordan Spieth won in 2015 and is looking to nab a second title. And after Sergio Garcia won the Masters last year, Rickie Fowler is now viewed as the best player never to win a major, a label he will try to shed on Sunday at Shinnecock Hills. (Fowler is also the most colorfully dressed golfer to win or not win a major.)
Learn how you can watch the US Open, the toughest test in golf.SOUTHAMPTON, N.Y. — There have been shots this year — soaring drives, precise irons, exquisite chips — and stretches of Tiger Woods-like golf that made you believe the greatest player of his generation truly was back, that winning again seemed to be just a matter of time, if not imminent.
So far, though, those stretches haven’t been brilliant enough, or long enough, for Woods to add to his total of 79 career victories. He has struggled to put his entire game together over four rounds and has been hampered most recently by a run of substandard putting.
The reality is he’s 42, with a body (if not a putting stroke) that might be approaching its major championship expiration date. He hasn’t won a major in 10 years and hasn’t won a PGA Tour event in nearly five.
Looking at it through that prism, it’s asking a lot for him to battle Shinnecock Hills and a field of 156 of the best golfers in the world and emerge triumphant Sunday in the 118th U.S. Open.Retief Goosen says the nature of the course at Shinnecock Hills should help level the playing field at this week’s U.S. Open.The South African was the last player to win the U.S. Open at the venue, holding off American favorite Phil Mickelson in a thrilling climax to the 2004 event.
On that occasion, the United States Golf Association received fierce criticism about the course, with narrow fairways and the decision not to water greens for the final round making scoring extremely difficult.
Goosen and Mickelson were the only players to finish under par, while Ernie Els—– playing with Goosen in the final pairing — shot 80 in round four.
This time around, the fairways should be considerably wider, but Goosen expects that level par may be enough to lift the trophy come Sunday.
“I can imagine it’s going to be tough and long. We can expect a winning score close to even par,” Goosen, speaking at the Isleworth Golf and Country Club, told Omnisport.
“Most golf courses these days are suited for the long hitters. The last time we played there, it was difficult to hit the fairway.
“It was difficult to keep the ball on the greens. I think the course is going to be suitable for all players.”
