Tickets for 2004 US Open already sold out

Tickets for next year's U.S. Open, to be held at Shinnecock Hills Golf Club from June 17-20, have sold out, organisers said on Wednesday.

This is the 18th consecutive year the U.S. Open has been a sellout, starting with the 1987 Open at The Olympic Club in San Francisco, the United States Golf Association (USGA) said in a statement.

The public were able to apply for 2004 tickets between June 16 and August 15 this year, and the computerised random drawing was completed on August 28, the USGA added.

The U.S. Open is one of 13 national championships conducted annually by the USGA.

Shinnecock Hills in Southampton, New York will be staging the second of the year's four major championships for the fourth time. James Foulis won the U.S. Open there in 1896, Raymond Floyd in 1986 and Corey Pavin in 1995.

Jim Furyk will defend his title at Shinnecock Hills in 2004, having clinched this year's title by three shots at Olympia Fields after holding off a brave challenge from playing partner Stephen Leaney of Australia.
