EDITORS NOTE: This story was about to appear on this website on Saturday morning, when the main computer in the office of Golfers on Golf had it’s keyboard die.

So Golfersongolf.com is playing catch up wit a loaner machine for the next two weeks, while our mainframe is in for reparis. We appreciate your understanding and will continue to post when we can. We expected to be back up and running at full speed around July 5th.

While there is never a good time for things like this to happen, in the height of golf season and U.S. Open week is the worst.

Later on Saturday afternoon, while appearing on Fox Sports during the broadcast in Round 3, USGA President Diana Murphy made the announcement of the 2025 Open returning to Oakmont.

She then went on to say the USGA has made the decision to return to the famed Long Island Club of Shinnecock in 2026.

The USGA had planned on taking the year off from making more US Open future site announcements, but apparently decided they could not wait to announce these two more years.
