They will play the United States Open Golf Championship for the 116th time later this week at storied Oakmont Country Club in Oakmont, Pa..
No native Mississippian has ever won the event, and that will remain the case this week. No Mississippian made the field.
Sports Hall of Famer Johnny Pott, who grew up and learned to play golf
on the Mississippi Gulf Coast, probably finished highest of all
Mississippians by tying for ninth at Congressional in 1964.
