Hot, sunny conditions are greeting spectators on the grounds of Pinehurst No.2 this week for the 124th playing of the US Open Championship.

An estimated 225,000 fans are expected to flood through the gates in North Carolina as the best players in the world battle it out on one of the best tests of golf in North America.

No more than 45,000 fans will watch the action on the course per day, with total attendance figures set to be lower than both 2005 and 2014.

This is a deliberate move from the organizers, with the USGA shifting focus from packing in the maximum number of fans to a more comfortable approach for those spectators present at the championship. However, there is a catch, as ticket prices were increased to make up for the gap of revenue left by less ticket sales.
