The US Open might be the second golf Major of the year, but it's certainly not second best in terms of coverage here at 888Sport. Held in June and lasting for three weeks, the notoriously difficult courses mean literally anything can happen at the US Open and that makes betting extremely enjoyable.
From pre-tournament outright bets to in-play wagers and round-by-round betting, our US Open hub is packed full of odds, so you'll always have something to speculate on when you join us.
Golf US Open History
First played in 1895, the US Open has always been one of the best attended Majors due to its varied entry requirements. Unlike the US Masters, which operates on an invite-only system, the US Open is open to any player with a USGA Handicap Index not exceeding 1.4.
The opening event attracted 11 players (ten pros and one amateur), but since that time the number of entrants has grown dramatically and, today, 156 players compete for the $9 million+ prizepool.
Qualifying for the US Open is achieved in two ways: winning a place via a qualification event or becoming fully exempt. Previous champions and top ranked players are classed as fully exempt and given automatic entry to the US Open. For those without an exemption, dozens of qualifying tournaments are held across the US and the top finishers are awarded with a ticket for the event.
This mixture of top ranked pros and emerging talent makes US Open betting extremely entertaining as the results are often tougher to predict.
