The first U.S. Open 2018 was played on October 4, 1895, on a nine-hole course at the Newport Country Club in Newport, Rhode Island. It was a 36-hole competition and was played in a single day. Ten professionals and one amateur entered. The winner was Horace Rawlins, a 21-year-old Englishman, who had arrived in the U.S. earlier that year to take up a position at the host club. He received $150 cash out of a prize fund of $335, plus a $50 gold medal; his club received the Open Championship Cup trophy, which was presented by the USGA.
U.S. Open play is characterized by tight scoring at or around par by the leaders, with the winner usually emerging at around even par. A U.S. Open course is seldom beaten severely, and there have been many over-par wins (in part because par is usually set at 70, except for the very longest courses. Normally, an Open course is quite long and will have a high cut of primary rough termed Open rough by the American press and fans undulating greens such as at Pinehurst No. 2 in 2005, which was described by Johnny Miller of NBC as like trying to hit a ball on top of a VW Beetle pinched fairways especially on what are expected to be less difficult holes and two or three holes that are short par fives under regular play would be used as long par fours during the tournament often to meet that frequently used par of 70, forcing players to have accurate long drives.
