Winged Foot Golf Club in suburban Mamaroneck, New York, was named host of the 2020 US Open on Monday by the US Golf Association, marking the sixth time the club has hosted the major championship.

The most recent time the US Open was staged at Winged Foot was in 2006, when Australian Geoff Ogilvy edged Colin Montgomerie, Jim Furyk and Phil Mickelson by a stroke after an epic collapse by Mickelson on the final hole.

Seeking his third major title in a row, Mickelson had only to par the 72nd hole to claim the crown, but sent his tee shot way left off a tent. He then struck a tree out of the rough and put his third into a bunker on the way to a double bogey.
