By Community | June 19, 2019

The US Open this past weekend performed well for Fox Sports with the highest ratings and viewership in six years.

The final round on Sunday as Gary Woodland secured victory pulled a 4.4 rating and 7.31 million viewers on FOX, rising 38% in ratings and 44% in viewership from last year. The peak viewership on Sunday was 10.17 million.

The audience was up from 6.69 million for the previous US Open on the West Coast in 2015, but lower than the 9.27 million for the last one Pebble Beach in 2010.

Outside of the Masters, it was the second-most watched golf telecast in the past five years behind the final round of the 2018 PGA Championship.

The complete US Open averaged 3.67 million viewers on FOX and FS1, up 28% from last year and up 37% from 2017. All four rounds showed healthy viewing increases.
