The championship final of the 2021 U.S. Open at Torrey Pines kicked off on Sunday.

Jon Rahm won the U.S. Open making him the first Spaniard to do so.

The U.S. Open returned to Torrey Pines 13 years after Tiger Woods and Rocco Mediate provided one of golf's most electric major championships.

The start of Thursday’s first round of the U.S. Open was delayed due to fog. 

The San Diego duo of Phil Mickelson and Xander Schauffele had by far the largest crowd on opening day. Roughly a thousand fans followed the local golfers around their first few holes.

A plaque was placed near the 18th green of the U.S. Open commemorating a famous putt by Tiger Woods at the 2008 U.S. Open.

Attendance capacity for the tournament was expected to be around 10,000 to 15,000 fans per day, according to the USGA.
