US Open 2020 tee times, TV coverage, live stream & more to watch Thursday's Round 1

The second golf major of the season, the 2020 U.S. Open, is here.

The 2020 golf major schedule may be skewed — this event was supposed to take place from June 18-21, after all. And while the U.S. Open is traditionally the third major of the season, golf fans will doubtless be glad to see the return of one of the cornerstone events of the season.

Regardless, there are plenty of interesting storylines entering this week’s competition other than what majors fall where. Chief among them is whether Dustin Johnson can continue his incredible run of success after winning the 2020 FedEx Cup playoffs, or whether another team from the field (Jon Rahm, Justin Thomas, Brooks Koepka and Tiger Woods, among others) can challenge for the 2020 championship.

With that, here is everything you need to know about the 2020 U.S. Open, including a list of tee times (updated daily), the complete TV schedule, purse, odds and more.

  • Distance: 7,477 yards

U.S. Open 2020 COVID-19 rules

The U.S. Open will follow the lead set by the PGA Championship and FedEx Cup playoffs by not allowing fan attendance, a decision it announced in late July.

“Following months of consultation and scenario planning with local and state health officials, we have jointly decided that hosting the U.S. Open without spectators will provide the best opportunity to conduct the championship safely for all involved,” said Mike Davis, CEO of the USGA. “We will miss the excitement of the fans and what their presence brings to the championship. We look forward to welcoming them again to future U.S. Opens.”

U.S. Open past winners

Johnson may be the favorite for this event, but he hasn’t won the U.S. Open since 2016. The most recent winner of this event is Gary Woodland, who won the 2019 U.S. Open with a score of 13-under 271. Another player who stands to make a run for the win is Koepka, who won this event in consecutive years in 2017 and ’18. Here’s a full breakdown of the winners (and their first-place share) for each of the last 20 U.S. Opens:

Novak Djokovic Shows Signs of Worry in His Round 1 Victory at French Open 2020

Novak Djokovic Shows Signs of Worry in His Round 1 Victory at French Open 2020

As the 2020 French Open got underway, it was time for the tournament’s #1 seed to grace the court in the men’s singles. Novak Djokovic had no trouble seeing off Sweden’s Mikael Ymer in the first round, but there were slight hints of an injury concern that arose due to the Serb’s activities during the game. 

Djokovic cruised to a 6-0, 6-2, 6-3 victory, dropping just five games to assert his dominance. He’s stepped into Roland Garros with hopes of claiming a second career crown. A 16th consecutive first-round victory is just the start the 33YO would have hoped for. 

While Rafa dropped ten games in his first-round fixture, Djokovic halved it to strike fear among his opponents. It is the perfect start in Paris for Djokovic, who is now 32-1 in 2020. While his only loss came due to a default, it really seems like Djokovic can only be beaten by himself! 

Injury concern pops up for Novak Djokovic in his first-round victory

This year has really taken a toll on everyone. For Novak Djokovic, it has been bittersweet. He’s won four out of the five tournaments he’s competed in. But the US Open debacle stands as a stain in his career. 

Moreover, we saw Djokovic struggling with his neck just before the start of the 2020 US Open. At the Western & Southern Open, the Djoker had to pull out from the doubles event due to the same.

While his neck injury seemingly wore off at the US Open, Djokovic is now troubled by his arm. The 33-year-old was spotted stretching his arm quite a lot against Ymer. It seemed strange as he more than often touched and inspected his dominant hand which caught the attention of the camera. 

The extreme cold conditions and the new and heavier balls are certainly a factor that can contribute to this. A few players including Djokovic have voiced out against the new Wilson balls, which is evidently slower on the surface but gets heavier with more usage. After the game, the Djoker commented on the injury concern and said

“Everything is all right. Balls are heavy, so I “felt” my forearm a bit, but nothing serious, I haven’t had any problems. It was a bit tight, but it wasn’t pain, nothing alarming.”

However, this did not stop Djokovic from eliminating his opponent in straight sets. With this victory, he moves into the second round in Paris and will face Ricardas Berankis of Lithuania.

Roy Jones Jr. Says Mike Tyson Can “Cause a Problem in the Heavyweight Division”

Roy Jones Jr. Says Mike Tyson Can "Cause a Problem in the Heavyweight Division"

Four-division world champion Roy Jones Jr. appeared in an interview where talked about his opponent for his comeback bout, Mike Tyson. In the interview, he was asked if Tyson could still compete at the highest level in boxing.

“I know he can because he [has] one thing most of them don’t have, except Deontay Wilder, which is tremendous punching power. Anytime you got tremendous punching power like Mike got, he got a chance. Because he can — in most of the fights — win under three rounds,” said Jones.

“So it’s like most of these guys, all he gotta do is get to their chin and he got them. [Do] you understand me? Because he had that much explosiveness in his punch…

“Yeah, I believe if he got himself in shape and took care of himself for like a six-month period, he definitely could cause a problem in the heavyweight division right [at] the end of the day.”

On being asked if Tyson could beat Joshua and Wilder, he said, “I think he could do well against those two, without a doubt… Just explosive punching power, that’s it.”

Jones and Tyson are set to fight each other on November 28 in an 8-round exhibition bout.

Should Mike Tyson take Roy Jones Jr.’s comments seriously?

Roy Jones Jr. (66-9, 47 KOs) had his last fight in 2018 against Scott Sigmon where he won via unanimous decision. He was finalized as Tyson’s opponent in his comeback this year. Mike Tyson (50-6-2, 44 KOs) will make his return to the ring after 15 years, having retired in 2005.

Coming to Jones’ statements, although Tyson was one of the most lethal heavyweights back in the day and still looks in great shape for this bout, him competing with the best heavyweights of the generation at 54, still seems far-fetched.

Age is something that cannot be neglected in a sport like boxing, even if Tyson is in his best shape. And while fans would love to see Tyson back in the ring competing against fighters of his age, going 12 rounds with heavyweight champions in their prime might be dangerous for the legend.

NBA Trade Rumors: Denver Nuggets’ Jerami Grant Set to Enter Free Agency

NBA Trade Rumors: Denver Nuggets’ Jerami Grant Set to Enter Free Agency

The team that stood out this season is the Denver Nuggets. These were the underdogs that nobody even expected to overcome 3-1 deficits twice this season, let alone make it to the Western Conference Finals. What’s even more surprising is that they had their conference finals contenders, LA Lakers, also rattled there for a while. However, this was as far as they could have come.

Now entering into the offseason, the Nuggets will be seen in a different light altogether, thanks to their stars Jamal Murray and Nikola Jokic. On the other hand, their forward is expected to exit from the Nuggets.

Jerami Grant wants to enter free agency

The Nuggets recruited Grant in July 2019 in a draft-day trade with the Oklahoma City Thunder. Grand attracted a lot of attention through his performance in the first season with the Nuggets. The 26-year-old averaged 12 points and 3.5 assists. When Grant was acquired, he was expected to bring in defensive prowess, which ultimately showed in the Nuggets’ postseason.

When playing against the Clippers, he did a fine job in defending Kawhi Leonard and even ended up defending LeBron James against the Lakers. No other player could have provided such stability under so much pressure. However, now, Grant is expected to opt-out of the $9 million player option with the Nuggets and enter into free agency.

On the Yahoo Sports ‘Posted Up’ podcast (18:24) in June, Grant stated, “I’m definitely not leaning towards picking up the player option. Like you said, I feel like I definitely outplayed the $9M that I’m making each year right now. But at the same time… I’d love to come to a conclusion or something like that with Denver. It just depends on what we discuss and negotiate when the time comes.”

Will the Denver Nuggets want to keep Grant?

When Jerami was asked if he wanted to be a part of the Nuggets, he said, “I’m definitely looking forward to it.

“We’ll see how it goes.”

With Paul Millsap’s imminent free-agency, the Nuggets would not want to let go of Grant either. The Nuggets have time and again signaled that they want Grant to be a part of their future. It’s just about finding the deal that fits.
