Can champion Bryson DeChambeau become just the eighth player to triumph back-to-back in one of golf's most coveted events?
Read on for full details on how to get a live stream of The US Open 2021 with our guide below.
DeChambeau powered his way to a six-shot victory with a superb final-round display in last year's tournament at Winged Foot, in New York.
However, the defending champ may need to reign in his big hitting style this weekend.
With its thick rough, and hard-to-hit, narrow fairways, accuracy looks set to be the order of the day for the players as they attempt to tackle the unforgiving Torrey Pines course for this year's tournament.
DeChambeau's main threat to his title could likely come from Spanish star Jon Rahm, who will be eager to get over the disappointment of having to abandon what looked like a odds-on win in the Memorial Tournament earlier this month after testing positive for Covid-19.
Also set to be in the hunt will be Masters champ Hideki Matsuyama, Dustin Johnson, and DeChambeau's big rival Brooks Koepka, while veteran Phil Mickelson will be hoping to complete a career Grand Slam with a win in the only Major that has eluded him during his illustrious career.

Coverage of this year's US Open is being split between NBC, its streaming service Peacock TV (opens in new tab), and the Golf Channel, with the bulk of the action broadcast on the former.
