How to follow the 2022 US Open: Australian TV Times, Tee Times

Seven Aussie golfers line up for the 122nd US Open Championship this week and it is expected to be a typical brutal affair at The Country Club in Brookline, Massachusetts, a course steeped in golfing history.

Australia’s best chance is again likely to be Cameron Smith, who has been working on his driver performance to back up his incredible short game and putting.

Perth golfer Min Woo Lee could also put in a big showing. The 23 year old is using the incentive that he would be part of the first brother-sister combination to win a major, after big sister Minjee Lee won the Women’s US Open last week. Despite his tender years, Min Woo is already known for stepping up on the big occasions.

Also teeing off in Brookline will be regulars Adam Scott and Marc Leishman, Jed Morgan, Lucas Herbert, and Todd Sinnott.

The tournament returns to Brookline for the first time since 1988 when Curtis Strange defeated Nick Faldo by four strokes in an 18-hole playoff after the pair completed 72 holes in six-under.

In a tough week for the Aussie contingent, Rodger Davis and 1981 champion David Graham were our best in a tie for 47th, a week that reinforced to Davis the difficulty of US Open set-ups.

“It was one of those weeks where it was just a struggle from virtually the first hole on,” said Davis. “You don’t tend to have too many good memories of those weeks.

“I do remember though that the last hole was a hell of a finishing hole. I do remember that. “It also had a lot of blind tee shots. The only course that I know of that perhaps has more would be Prestwick.”

  1. Allan, thanks for pointing out that typo. We typed Cameron Davis when it was obviously referring to Cameron Smith. At least the editor had the right golfer photo, tee time mention and Player Profile. The editor has been struggling with a bad case of the flu this week so we might cut him some slack and just issue a stern ‘No Typo’ warning at this stage. Thanks again for pointing out the error.
