The 2021 US Open Friday pin sheet has been released for the second round during which will be played under good weather conditions on Day 2, including sunshine, 74-degree temperatures and modest wind.
That weather will impact how Torrey Pines plays and how the 156-player field will approach the course. So, too, will the hole locations (pin placements) as selected by the USGA US Open Competition Committee.

Some things to note:
- The hole location on the third will require a player to be careful to not bring the canyon into play.
- The par-5 ninth will require a game player to cut in the ball to seek out a 3 on the card.
- Three holes have locations that are four paces from the edges of the sides of their greens.
- The hole location on the 18th is the most accessible for a second shot, but it will be difficult to hold given how the green is shaped.
