Gary Woodland wins US Open

Justin Rose

Woodland came into the week 0-for-7 holding onto the 54-hole lead throughout his career. "I never let myself get ahead of myself". "And I know that Florida will not be the same temperature as Northern Ireland".

Like Koepka, Woodland grew up an athlete playing many different sports.

The victory was Woodland's first major championship. After a year at Washburn University, he transferred to Kansas on a golf scholarship. And it all kind of came out of me. "You had to do it the right way if you were going to do it". "It's incredible. Anytime you can compete in a major is special, and to have a chance to go back-to-back, that was pretty cool".

Two years ago, Gary and his wife Gabby were expecting twins but lost one of the children during pregnancy. The second child was born three months later. Before Sunday's final round he Facetimed his family.

"I felt like, We've got a ball game now, '" Koepka said. "I told her she was an inspiration to all of us, and we can all learn from her". If he elects to play the WGC-FedEx St. Jude Invitational in Memphis, Tennessee, the week following The Open, he is facing five tournaments in six weeks, including the three FedEx Cup playoff events.

And never mind the KU golf/Gary Woodland explosion that took place on KU Twitter.

Woodland was in the lead and could have played it safe with his second shot on the par-5 14th hole.

But Koepka and Rose would not give him the trophy.

He's seemingly not going to be playing as much, either. "He deserves it, he's worked hard and I'm happy for him".

During the final round, Woodland made certain to slow things down by soaking in his surroundings at the stunning course.

"I was just trying to get it over that hump", Woodland said.

"Being a father now puts life in perspective". But this was not your usual U.S. Open, if there is such a thing anymore. It's not the three-peat some expected, but he's faced approximately 460 players in the last three U.S. Opens and only been beaten by one. The course played softer than expected and the USGA were seen watering the greens after the off but the absence of any noticeable wind meant for a benign and player friendly week. You know, Amy's attitude is phenomenal.

McIlroy had an overall disappointing final round where he wasn't able to capitalize on one of his best U.S. Open starts, but his birdie at 18 put him in the top-10 for the 11th time in 2019.

"It doesn't sting. I played great", Koepka said. "Took a bit of a day off". He shot 74 and shared third with Xander Schauffele (67), Jon Rahm (68) and Chez Reavie (71). Scott finished tied with Louis Oosthuizen for seventh at six-under.

T21. Tiger Woods (-2): Woods needed a flurry of birdies late in his round to shoot a 2-under 69 and finish the championship under par. His tee shot landed at the edge of the green, some 90 feet from the hole, giving Woodland only one option to get up-and-down for what would be a championship-winning par. He looked to be on his way to a score between 75 and 80.

Instead, Woods did what Woods does.

"Yeah, just keep fighting", he said after his round. He clipped it perfectly just over the hump, and it checked about 12 feet from the hole and trickled out to tap-in range.
