Gary Woodland held off charges from former champions Justin Rose and Brooks Koepka and fired a tremendous final-round 69 to win the 119th U.S. Open. The victory is Woodland’s first major championship and comes after he held both the 36-hole and 54-hole leads in the tournament.
Those looking for drama on Sunday afternoon didn’t get it as Woodland not only avoided bogeys on his final six holes but carded two birdies, including a 30-foot putt on 18 that was the perfect capstone to his tournament and moved him to 13-under par, one stroke better than Tiger Woods’ score of 12-under from 2000. Woodland’s four bogeys over the course of this year’s U.S. Open tie for the fewest at the event in the last 50 years.
