US Open Golf 2017: Tee Times, Date, TV Schedule and Prize Money. The U.S. Open will make its way to Erin Hills, Wisconsin, for the first time in its history this week as the competition begins anew on Thursday with an eager list of superstar talents ready to vie for major victory. Sergio Garcia finally ended his wait for a first major championship at the Masters in April, and the question now is whether we’ll see another new champion crowned, although some of the previous winners in the field will look to ensure otherwise.
The new breed are really beginning to make headway through golf’s elite of late, and although it was a European who took first blood in the 2017 majors, America will hope to level the scores on home soil this weekend. Rory McIlroy, 28, is sure to rank among Europe’s top hopefuls of edging another title in Wisconsin, but 23-year-old Spieth has matched the Northern Irishman stroke for stroke in recent years, per Justin Ray of the Golf Channel
USGA championship money typically comes from revenue from broadcast rights, merchandise and tickets, among other things, and this year’s U.S. Open will offer the largest payout among golf’s four major championships. According to a USGA spokesperson, this year’s prize money was increased “commensurate with the global stature of these championships. We balanced these decisions carefully with the many other ways the USGA fulfills its mission to serve, honor and advance the game.
