The U.S. Open concludes today from Pebble Beach in California. If you’re going to be tuning in on the East Coast, be prepared for a later-than-normal finish.
The tournament is operating on West Coast time. A few groups have already gotten things started today, but the contenders won’t tee of for a couple of hours.
The top six competitors on the leaderboard will all tee off after 5 p.m. ET. Leader Gary Woodland (-11) and second-place golfer Justin Rose (-10) start last, with a tee time of 5:30 p.m. ET.
Assuming the final round takes a few hours for them, we’re looking at a finish around 9:30-10 p.m. ET.

Behind Woodland and Rose, Brooks Koepka, Louis Oosthuizen and Chez Reavie (-7) are next in the mix. Rory McIlroy (-6) is right behind them.
We should have a pretty exciting finish on our hands. If the 35-year-old Woodland closes it out, it will be his first major championship.
Woodland’s previous best finish was a tie for sixth at the PGA Championship in 2018.
