Can you feel it? Do you smell it? The 2022 U.S. Open has arrived, and four days of pristine golf return to The Country Club in Brookline, Massachusetts for the first time since 1988. It all begins Thursday with Round 1 as the grounds will be filled to capacity with fans aiming to view a ton of high-quality golf at this year's national championship.

Anticipation has reached a fever pitch with play beginning as Rory McIlroy looks to win back-to-back tournaments while capturing his first major championship since 2014. He got off to a great start, shooting a 3-under 67 to open play and going 17 holes without a bogey before a frustrating finish on the last. McIlroy was among the clubhouse leaders at the time he finished pay and has put himself in position for a run to the championship over the next 54 holes.

Reigning PGA champion Justin Thomas and reigning Masters champion Scottie Scheffler will both have something to say about that as they lead a list of stars going after the third major of the season. While Tiger Woods will not be in attendance as he continues to rehabilitate ahead of The Open Championship, Phil Mickelson is playing his first event in the United States since February while shrouded in controversy. There will be plenty of focus on him and Dustin Johnston, neither of whom played particularly well last week, as there will be on a number of other huge names attempting to tackle The Country Club.

Even beyond those golfers, there is so much to follow this week that it can be overwhelming at times. No worries: We have you covered.
