US Open Golf: 2018, Tee Times, Date, TV Schedule and Prize Money. The 2018 U.S. Open 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 in history—but nonetheless will still provide a uniquely difficult challenge.
While the Masters may get the hype and the glory, the U.S. Open is the most demanding golf tournament of the year.
Expect the best players in the world to have plenty of difficulty when they tee off at Shinnecock Hills Golf Club in Southampton, New York, for the first round Thursday. The tournament is scheduled to conclude Sunday, barring any long weather delays.
The waiting is over – it’s time for the second major golf championship of the year. The 2018 US Open from Shinnecock Hills is looking very hard to call, but what we do know is how you can watch the highs and the lows, the birdies and the bogeys, from anywhere in the world. And it even looks like there’s going to be a live stream to enjoy, too.

Producer Mark Loomis said the network has the ability to look a the tournament in a different manner that traditional golf-broadcast networks.
“One big advantage that we have is we’re kind of a fresh look at it,” he said, per Neil Best of Newsday. “When Paul Azinger comes up, you haven’t been hearing him week to week to week. When we got Paul, I think we got the best guy in the business.”
While the honor of winning the national tournament in what is arguably the most difficult environment of the year is reward in itself, players will be competing for $12 million in prize money. The winner is scheduled to earn $2.16 million, a substantial prize.
Yep, this is looking like one very interesting golf tournament. After Brooks Koepka stormed to triumph last year, there are no overwhelming favorites to join the pantheons of famous champions. Former winners like Dustin Johnson, Jordan Spieth, Rory McIlroy and, yes, Tiger Woods, will all be in the hunt to lift the trophy aloft once again.
And because it looks as though the official US Open website will be hosting a live stream of the main golf action, we can tell you how to watch it all even if you’re outside the United States. Keep reading to see how to get a US Open golf live stream from any corner of the Earth.
The consensus is that the most powerful players off the tee have an advantage in this tourney, something that oddsmakers clearly agree with. The sportsbooks opened betting with Dustin Johnson—who ran away with a victory at the St. Jude Classic and is now hoping to become the first person to ever win this tournament after placing first the prior week—as the clear-cut favorite at +1100 odds. That means Johnson, who won this event in 2016, would return $11 for every $1 wagered on him if he can outlast the competition at Shinnecock Hills. Those odds put him ahead of stars such as Rory McIlroy (+1300), Jordan Spieth (+1400) and Justin Rose (+1400), three players that also have U.S. Open wins under their belts. Tiger Woods isn’t far off the top of the list either, opening at +1600 to win his 15th major and first since his incredible 2008 U.S. Open triumph at Torrey Pines. Phil Mickelson, the six-time U.S. Open runner-up, is getting 30-1 odds to finally complete a career Grand Slam at the age of 47.Here’s a look at the full list of odds for every notable golfer in the field, courtesy.
