A turbulent year of golf continues as a strong group heads to Los Angeles for the 2023 US Open.

For the first time, the Los Angeles Country Club is hosting golf’s most punishing major as the event returns to the California city after a 75-year absence.

The unexpected news of the merger between the Saudi-backed LIV Golf Series and the PGA Tour has changed the landscape of golf in the fortnight before the third major tournament of the year, but players will have to focus on the issues of the course with a challenging layout likely to test the terrain.

Matt Fitzpatrick will be hoping to produce his best golf as he tries to defend his US Open title, while Jon Rahm and Brooks Koepka have already had major wins this year and could struggle again.

Here’s everything you need to know.

When is the US Open?

The 2023 US Open will be held at the Los Angeles Country Club in California over four days, from Thursday June 15 to Sunday June 18.

Which LIV golfers play in Los Angeles?

While the breakaway LIV golfers may soon be brought back into the PGA Tour fold following news of a surprise merger, for now the rebels are staying away from most Tour events. .

Competitors are: Brooks Koepka, Cameron Smith, Dustin Johnson, Bryson DeChambeau, Mito Pereira, Joaquin Niemann, Patrick Reed, Phil Mickelson, Sebastian Munoz, Sergio Garcia, Thomas Pieters, Abraham Ancer, Carlos Ortiz, David Puig, Martin Kaymer.
