After last year's U.S. Open took place in the middle of September due to the coronavirus pandemic, this year's third major golf tournament is back in its rightful time frame in June.
The likes of Brooks Koepka, Bryson DeChambeau, Rory McElroy and Jordan Spieth have all racked up tournament wins along the PGA Tour this year, but Phil Mickelson's PGA Championship triumph at the Kiawah Island Golf Resort in South Carolina was the most monumental victory in quite some time.
