June 14-17, 2018 -- The 118th U.S. Open will be played at Shinnecock Hills Golf Club in Southampton, New York. The links-style course is hosting the major for the fifth time, and will play as a par 70 at 7,445 yards – a stretch of almost 450 yards since the 2004 Open – thanks to 10 new back tees.

The most significant adjustments come at the downhill par-4 14th (now 519 yards) and the winding par-5 16th (now 616 yards). Seven acres of fairway have also been converted to rough as part of a project begun in 2012 to restore the course to its 1931 design.


21 days to go until NEW GRAPHIC NEWS - a new website for a new era.

28 years ago — April 2, 1991 — the original Graphic News launched using a precursor to today’s websites that used email technology. These enabled infographics to be delivered electronically around the world over telephone lines. What was possible was very limited - It took 10 minutes for a 100K file to download.

Since then delivery speeds and website technology have moved on. The new website will offer the best online experience possible now, adding many new features (and offering new opportunities for the future), but still enabling existing users to select and download infographics and enjoy the distinct brand of visual journalism that is Graphic News.


Over the coming days I will give further information. Please contact me if you have any questions. Fiona Roberts, froberts @ graphicnews.com
