2013 US Open Preview

History…

The 2013 US Open takes place at Merion Golf Club, on the East Course in Ardmore Pennsylvania. This will be the fifth time the US Open has been held at the course. In 1934, Olin Dutra won the first US Open held here and 16 years late in 1950, Ben Hogan won the second of his US Open titles at the course.

There was a break of 21 years before Lee Trevino also won his second US Open title at Merion in 1971, and then in 1981, the unheralded David Graham produced one of the shock wins of any Major event when he lifted the US Open title at Merion.

The current champion is Webb Simpson, who won the 2012 US Open at the Olympic Club, San Francisco.
