1st U.S. Open in the Pacific Northwest in the championship's 115-year history
Sold more merchandise than any U.S. Open
Registered 5,000 volunteers in 36 hours -- two months faster than usual
Championship rounds -- sold out faster than usual
Corporate hospitality venues -- sold out
300 structures built on site
Grandstand seating for 18,000 throughout the site
6,000-seat grandstand is largest ever built on the 18th hole of a U.S. Open course
Nearly 40 hours of coverage by FOX Sports (plus many hours of pre-championship coverage by the Golf Channel, ESPN, and others)
Credentialed media on-site came from 19 countries and published or aired thousands of stories
Visits to www.ChambersBayGolf.com increased more than 2,000% over championship week in 2014, and came from all 50 states and 201 countries.
Economic impact was estimated at $140-$150 million in direct and indirect effects; that number will be updated via a USGA-commissioned economic impact study from Pacific Lutheran University economics professors
Hotels throughout Pierce, Kitsap, Thurston, and King counties hosted players, media, volunteers, and spectators
Hotels as far away as Lewis County benefitted from the compression-effect of near-capacity at hotels closer to Chambers Bay
The value of the media attention is incalculable
The long-term effect of having spectators from all over the world attending on their own behalf or as guests as such companies as Rolex, Lexus, WorkDay, and others puts the spotlight on the Pacific Northwest and the Puget Sound region

Other Player Stats
Louis Oosthuizen’s total of 199 over his final 54 holes is the lowest in U.S. Open history. The previous best was Kevin Chappell’s 202 at Congressional in 2011.
Oosthuizen nearly completed the greatest 54-hole comeback in the U.S. Open. The best comeback by a winner over the final 54 holes in the U.S. Open is by Jack Fleck, who trailed by nine strokes in 1955. Oosthuizen trailed by 12 strokes after the first round.
Dustin Johnson played the second nine in 4 over par for the week (Spieth played it in 5 under par.) Johnson has nine top-10s in 25 career major championships.
The 64 by Adam Scott is the lowest score in the U.S. Open since Lucas Glover’s second round in 2009, a span of 22 rounds. Scott did not make a bogey over the last 23 holes of the championship.

Eight players from outside the United States finished in the top 10, matching the highest total since World War I. It is just third time it has occurred since 1919.
The tie for ninth is Rory McIlroy’s fourth consecutive top-10 finish in a major championship.
The 12th hole yielded 26 eagles in the championship. That is the most eagles on a single hole in the U.S. Open since 1985, when course statistics were first kept. The previous high was 17 on the fifth hole at Pinehurst in 2014
