Gary Woodland of the United States won the 2019 US Open at the Pebble Beach Golf Links in California. Sunday's win marks Woodland's first title in a major after starting the final day as leader, reports Efe news.
"I never let myself get ahead. Once that went in, it all came out of me. It's special to finish it off here at Pebble Beach," Woodland said after winning.
Woodland resisted the onslaught of fellow countryman Brooks Koepka, winner of the previous two editions of the Open and of the recent PGA Championship at the Bethpage Black course, finishing 13-under-par, three strokes ahead of Koepka (-10).
This was the fifth consecutive US Open trophy to remain in the United States after Germany's Martin Kaymer won the championship in 2014.
England's Justin Rose (-7), who won the 2013 US Open, posed a threat to Woodland for a time, but a string of bogeys on the last few holes left him sharing third place with Americans Xander Schauffele and Chez Revie and Spain's Jon Rahm, all of them seven-under-par.
