PEBBLE BEACH, CALIF. (June 28, 2016) – Pebble Beach Resorts, host site for the 2019 U.S. Open Championship, is proud to unveil the championship logo that represents the sixth playing of golf’s ultimate test at Pebble Beach Golf Links, the most of any host course in the last 50 years.
The 119th U.S. Open Championship will be conducted June 13-16, 2019, and the prestigious major will be the 13th USGA championship at Pebble Beach: five U.S. Amateurs (including the upcoming 2018 U.S. Amateur), two U.S. Women’s Amateurs and the aforementioned five U.S. Opens. The 2019 U.S. Open will also bring together the USGA and Pebble Beach to celebrate their second centennial together – the USGA conducted its 100th U.S. Open at Pebble Beach in 2000, and Pebble Beach Golf Links will ring in its centennial in 2019.
“We are honored to host our sixth U.S. Open Championship, especially during our centennial, and we are equally proud to continue our very special and storied relationship with the USGA,” said Bill Perocchi, Chief Executive Officer of Pebble Beach Company. “This logo, in our opinion, makes the perfect statement in honoring the unique spirit of our nation’s championship.”
The 2019 logo, which symbolizes the great tradition of America’s championships at Pebble Beach, features the red, white and blue colors of our nation’s flag, with six stripes representing the six U.S. Opens at Pebble Beach. The Lone Cypress has been the defining symbol of Pebble Beach since its founding in 1919, and it stands as proudly on a rich golfing tradition as it does on its rocky promontory just a short drive from the courses at Pebble Beach Resorts. The logo will appear on all 2019 U.S. Open merchandise that will be available for purchase beginning in 2017.
The USGA has a long history of championships at Pebble Beach, and the course has been the site of many of golf’s greatest major moments – dating back to the 1929 U.S. Amateur when the fledgling Pebble Beach Golf Links was barely 10 years old. Jack Nicklaus first played – and won at – the course during the 1961 U.S. Amateur and paired that victory with a U.S. Open title in 1972, to become the only golfer to win the U.S. Amateur and U.S. Open at the same venue.
The U.S. Open returned in 1982 and 1992, won by Tom Watson and Tom Kite, respectively, followed by the 1999 U.S. Amateur and 2000 U.S. Open. Tiger Woods’ 12-under-par total was sheer brilliance, establishing several scoring records and capturing the first leg of his “Tiger-Slam” as he continued his dominance in the world of golf. The U.S. Open was last played at Pebble Beach in 2010, when Northern Ireland’s Graeme McDowell held on to become the first European in 40 years to claim the U.S. Open. Three of the game’s top names — Ernie Els, Phil Mickelson and Woods — finished within three strokes.
