When a golf course stages the U.S. Open, it gets major alterations to make it as tough as possible for the players. Greens are made bumpier, fairways get pinched and rough gets rougher.

Thankfully, with a VPN you can make the perfect drive and watch the U.S. Open 2016 securely.

A VPN is the easiest way to secure your connection

A VPN (virtual private network) is a simple service that lets you connect to the Internet via another country.

When you use a VPN, websites think you’re using a different IP address. Your real IP stays hidden, and your connection is more secure.

Don’t miss the U.S. Open!

The U.S. Open is heading back to Oakmont Country Club

The 116th U.S. Open Championship will take place at the Oakmont Country Club in Pennsylvania, for the 9th time.

The sloping, links-style course is known for having few trees and fewer water traps. Greens undulate wildly, and par is only 70. It’s going to be another tough and tight U.S. Open.

Spieth, McIlroy, Rose… who’s going to win?

So, who’s your pick for the 2016 U.S. Open title?
