Due to the affects of the COVID-19 pandemic, the 120th U.S. Open has been postponed. The new championship dates are September 14-20.
The decision to postpone did not come lightly, but we feel it gives us the best opportunity to conduct the championship this year while ensuring the safety of all involved. We’re sure this news sparks a lot of questions for volunteers, so please know we stand ready to assist. We have developed these FAQs to quickly answer some of your more basic questions.
While it is certainly disappointing to have to delay an event we have worked so hard on, we remain optimistic and excited to celebrate this milestone championship later this year.
If you have questions, or if the new dates no longer work for your schedule, please don’t hesitate to reach us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We will continue to communicate any changes in a timely fashion and look forward to working with all of you over the coming months.
