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.
"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.
