Six U.S. Open Champions to Tee Off This Week, June 7-9, at the Golf Club of Houston

HOUSTON – Fans attending LIV Golf Houston this week will get a preview of the season’s upcoming major, the 124th U.S. Open at Pinehurst, when past U.S. Open champions such as Bryson DeChambeau, Jon Rahm and two-time winner Brooks Koepka, battle it out at the Golf Club of Houston, June 7-9.

The event – LIV Golf’s eighth of the 2024 schedule and first-ever in Texas – features 12 players scheduled to compete in the third major of the season, including past champions Rahm (2021), DeChambeau (2020), Koepka (2017, 2018), Dustin Johnson (2016), and Martin Kaymer (2014). Additionally, six-time major winner and World Golf Hall of Famer Phil Mickelson, 2022 Open Champion Cameron Smith, English star Tyrrell Hatton, and 2023 DP World Tour Player of the Year Adrian Meronk will look to conquer “golf’s toughest test.” Young Spanish stars Eugenio Chacarra and David Puig, along with 2024 LIV Golf Miami individual champion Dean Burmester, recently qualified and will also play at Pinehurst.

In Texas, the Golf Club of Houston is known for its championship-caliber layout and has historically tested the best in the sport, making it an ideal venue for LIV Golf’s competitive field. The picturesque site hosted the PGA Tour’s Shell Houston Open from 2006 through 2019 before the event moved to Memorial Park in 2020. LIV Golf players including Paul Casey (2009), Anthony Kim (2010), Mickelson (2011), Matt Jones (2014), and Ian Poulter (2018) all earned PGA Tour wins at the well-known course.

“The Golf Club of Houston is a tough golf course – a lot of water and a lot of difficult holes,” said DeChambeau, the Crushers GC Captain who finished solo second at the recent PGA Championship. “Hopefully, it will give us a good test for the following week.”

LIV Golf Houston promises to deliver three days of high-stakes golf, as players and teams continue the race in the season-long individual and team standings. Tickets for LIV Golf Houston, including hospitality packages and grounds passes, are currently available.
