  • Woodland denies history with US Open title at Pebble Beach

"I was even thinking about laying it up a little bit, and he said let's go, let's go, let's hit three-wood".

Straight past Tiger Woods in the record book, in fact.

Gary Woodland won the 119th US Open on Sunday, capturing his first major title with a 13-under par total to deny two-time defending champion Brook Koepka's bid for history at Pebble Beach. "You got this." Until Sunday, when he cradled the silver trophy at Pebble Beach, Woodland got more attention from one hole in a pro-am at the Phoenix Open.

But to say Woodland took the easy way to his first major title would be missing the point.

He spent the majority of his professional golfing career without making a single top ten before a sixth-place finish at the 2018 PGA Championship.

"I've only played (Royal) County Down, I've never been up to Portrush and I'm looking forward to getting up there and taking a look at the golf course and trying to figure it out", Woods said after finishing in a tie for 21st. I'll be back later today or tomorrow with my previews but just before I go.

Five behind leader and eventual victor Gary Woodland overnight, McIlroy's already slim hopes were extinguished after he double bogeyed the second.

It was at one shot when Woodland drove to the middle of the fairway on the par-5 14th, faced with the choice between laying up, the way most players have all week, or going for it and hoping the shot would hold on the severely sloping putting surface. His par there preserved the two-shot lead.

Anthony Joshua Talks About Tyson Fury's Win Over Tom Schwarz
D'ya know what I mean?' Arum said that next year's likely rematch with Wilder would take place in Las Vegas. The man who is now fourth in the IBF ranking and fifth in the WBC rankings could be the ideal fit for Fury.

"I wish I would have known because I would have turned it around a little earlier than that", Woods said of the reason for the change of fortunes. That's where Tom Watson hit the biggest shot of his life, chipping in during the 1982 U.S. Open and sewing up a victory over Jack Nicklaus.

"I thought this was a really good chance for me", Mickelson said. 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.

He's not bad with the putter on those greens, either.

That set up birdie for a two-shot lead, and that shot gave him belief to execute another that looked equally risky. That's what you've got to do if you want to win a US Open, win a major championship and hats off to him. I was guarding Kirk Hinrich, and, like, okay, I need to find something else, because this ain't gonna work.

Koepka said he wasn't upset about this weekend.

While Pebble Beach Golf Links is not one of the 1,200 courses stepping up to join the programme that now has over 50,0000 members, other properties that are part of the Pebble Beach Company portfolio are.

Koepka did grab a slice of US Open history, becoming the fourth player to complete four rounds in the 60s.

Both Woodland, 35, and Koepka 29, have the same instructor Pete Cowen from Yorkshireman, who left for England a day before Woodland was crowned. He clipped it perfectly just over the hump, and it checked about 12 feet from the hole and trickled by the pin to secure par, and effectively the U.S. Open. What's not to love? "He's worked hard and I'm happy for him".
