Tickets On Sale for 2013 US Open at Merion Golf Club

The Merion Golf Club will host its fifth US Open tournament from June 10-16, 2013.

Tickets for the 2013 US Open, to be held at are on sale and quantities are limited, the U.S. Golf Association announced this week. The tournament will be held June 10-16, 2013.

Merion's small course has hosted four previous US Opens and 18 USGA championship tournaments, more than any other course. The Merion Golf Club was recently named the 6th greatest course in US Open history by Bleacher Report, the latest of many similar accolades.

The course may be small, "but what Merion lacks in length it makes up for with its challenging layout and uniqueness," Bleacher Report contributor Jeremy Los writes.

Mike Davis, the USGA's executive director, recently spoke with Philadelphia Daily News about the decision to hold the 2013 game in Merion, calling it a "Boutique Open," according to Philly.com.

"Oakmont and Merion have always had a certain place in my heart," Davis told Philadelphia Daily News.

Tickets can be purchased on the US Open website.
