Jordan Spieth birdied the final hole to win the 115th U.S. Open yesterday.
After entering the day in a four-way tie for the lead with Dustin Johnson, Branden Grace and Jason Day, Spieth carded a one-under 69 in the final round to finish five-under for the championship.
Spieth finished one shot better than Johnson, who squandered a chance to either win or force an 18-hole playoff by three-putting the 18th.
The 21-year-old Spieth is the youngest player to win the U.S. Open since Bobby Jones in 1923.
He will head into next month’s British Open halfway to golf’s Grand Slam after also winning the Masters in April.
No player has ever won all four modern majors in the same calendar year.
Louis Oosthuizen finished tied for second with Johnson at four-under.
Grace and Day finished three-under and even, respectively, for the championship.
