Don't Have Tickets to the US Open? Catch the Action in Union Square

All the big names in golf  – Tiger Woods, Phil Mickelson, Bubba Watson, Luke Donald, Rory McIlroy and more – will be taking aim at one of the sport's major titles when the U.S. Open Championship begins a four-day run Thursday at the Olympic Club Lake Course in the southwest corner of San Francisco.

Tickets to the event are no longer officially available – US Golf Association officials declared the Open to be sold out yesterday, for the 26th consecutive tournament – but fans can get an almost "you are there" experience nonetheless by wandering over to Union Square during the four days of the championship.

Andy Potts of Colorado Springs won today for the 5th time setting a course record for the most ever won by a male. Leanda Cave won for the women.
