2014 U.S. Open tee times, TV coverage and live stream

The PGA Championship at exacting Oak Hill will play like a U.S. Open, so U.S. Open champion Justin Rose is a smart pick.

The 114th U.S. Open will be played at the Pinehurst Resort for the third time in the last 15 years.

The tournament was last held there in 2005 and features some major changes to the playing course. The course is 348 yards longer than was it in 2005, plus it features four par-4s (No. 2, No. 4, No. 8, and No. 16) that measure over 500 yards each.

England's Justin Rose is the defending champion, but no golfer has won back-to-back U.S. Open titles since Curtis Strange accomplished the feat in 1988 and 1989.
