The 2012 U.S. Open gets underway on Thursday at the Olympic Club in San Francisco. The notoriously tricky course has a tremendously tricky front nine and will likely not lend itself to a slew of low scores. Driving accuracy will be of utmost importance as the best golfers in the world go for the second Grand Slam title of the year.
The tournament has all the star power you would expect, including three-time U.S. Open winner and reigning champion Rory McIroy.
