ARCHITECTS

2018 CHAMPION
The U.S. Open produced a repeat champion for the third time in the post-World War II era when Brooks Koepka won at Shinnecock Hills Golf Club in Southampton, N.Y., last June. Koepka, who also won the 2017 U.S. Open at Erin Hills, carded a final-round 68 for a one-stroke victory over Tommy Fleetwood. Sidelined for four months earlier in the year due to a wrist injury, Koepka became the first to successfully defend his crown since Curtis Strange 29 years ago. Koepka, 28, of West Palm Beach, Fla., was one of four players who started the final round tied for the lead at 3 over par. He made clutch pars on holes 12 and 14 and stuffed his wedge approach on the par-5 16th to within 4 feet to a set up a birdie and a two-stroke lead. Even a 72-hole bogey could not prevent him from hoisting the trophy. Fleetwood, who started his final round 2 ½ hours before the final pairing of Tony Finau and Daniel Berger teed off, fired a 63 to match the lowest round in championship history to finish in the runner-up position. Dustin Johnson, the 2016 champion, mustered an even-par 70 while playing with Koepka and finished third at 3-over 283.
TITLE DEFENSE
Brooks Koepka is attempting to become the second player to win three consecutive U.S. Open Championships after his victories at Erin Hills in 2017 and Shinnecock Hills Golf Club in 2018. Willie Anderson, a Scottish professional, won his third in a row at Myopia Hunt Club in South Hamilton, Mass., in 1905, a two-stroke triumph over Alex Smith. Anderson and Koepka are among seven players to win in consecutive years. The group includes John J. McDermott (1911, 1912), a-Robert T. Jones Jr. (1929, 1930), Ralph Guldahl (1937, 1938), Ben Hogan (1950, 1951) and Curtis Strange (1988, 1989).

PURSE
The 2018 purse was $12 million; the winner earned $2.16 million. The 2019 purse will total $12.5 million, highest among golf’s major championships.
PEBBLE BEACH HISTORY
Pebble Beach Golf Links is part of the famous 17-Mile Drive, which was originally designed as a local excursion route for visitors to the Del Monte to take in the historic sights of Monterey and Pacific Grove and the scenery of what would become Pebble Beach. The course was designed by Jack Neville and Douglas Grant and opened on Feb. 22, 1919. Neville’s objective was to place as many of the holes as possible along the Monterey coastline and he accomplished this by using a “figure 8” layout. The first professional tournament held at Pebble Beach was the 1926 Monterey Peninsula Open. In 1929, the course hosted the U.S. Amateur Championship for the first time. In 1947, Pebble Beach became one of the host courses for the Bing Crosby National Pro-Am, which is currently known as the PGA Tour’s AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am. Pebble Beach has hosted 12 USGA championships, including five U.S. Opens and five U.S. Amateurs, and was the site of the 1977 PGA Championship. The course has also hosted the PGA Tour Champions’ PURE Insurance Championship since 2004.
2010 U.S. OPEN
Graeme McDowell carded a final-round, 3-over-par 74 to earn a one-stroke victory over Frenchman Gregory Havret at even-par 284, thus ending a 40-year European drought in the U.S. Open Championship. England’s Tony Jacklin was the last European to claim the title, in 1970 at Hazeltine National Golf Club in Chaska, Minn. McDowell became the first golfer from Northern Ireland to win a USGA championship. Ernie Els was third at 286 and Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson shared fourth at 287. With third-round leader Dustin Johnson struggling to an 82 over his final 18 holes, McDowell steadied his game. He birdied the par-4 fifth to reach 4 under par for the championship and did not make any critical mistakes, despite registering four bogeys coming in. Havret, a sectional qualifier, came up short in his bid to force an 18-hole playoff on Monday with a bogey on the 71st hole and a missed 9-foot birdie putt on the par-5 18th.

2000 U.S. OPEN
Tiger Woods lapped the field and was the lone player under par when he finished at 12-under-par 272 and was an incredible 15 strokes ahead of Ernie Els and Miguel Angel Jimenez. Woods led by one stroke after the first round (65), by six after the second round (134) and by 10 after the third round (205). He played the first 22 holes and the last 26 holes without a bogey and did not have a single three-putt during the championship. Woods, who won the first of his third U.S. Open titles, made his move early with a bogey-free first round. Foggy conditions delayed play on Friday, and Woods managed just 12 holes before his second round was halted by darkness. Still, he finished birdie-birdie and slept on a six-shot lead over Jimenez. While Woods’ brilliance was on display, this was also a farewell to four-time champion Jack Nicklaus who competed in his 44th and final U.S. Open.

1992 U.S. OPEN
Tom Kite shot an even-par 72 on the final day to finish with a 72-hole score of 3-under 275 and win by two strokes over runner-up Jeff Sluman. Kite and the field battled wind gusts up to 40 miles per hour in Sunday’s cold and testing conditions. Only five players broke par for the day and 20 others failed to break 80. In the third round, Gil Morgan made U.S. Open history when he became the first player to reach 10 under. He eventually struggled to a 77 but still held the 54-hole lead at 4-under 212. Morgan would relinquish the top spot to Kite in the final round with a double-bogey 6 on No. 4. Kite added to his lead with a 25-foot birdie on the sixth and played a delicate wedge that hit the flagstick and fell in for a birdie on the par-3 seventh. Kite would stay ahead with birdies at holes 12 and 14 to offset bogeys at Nos. 16 and 17 and record the lone major championship of his career.

1982 U.S. OPEN
In a memorable finish, Tom Watson made birdie on the 17th hole when he chipped in from off the green to edge Jack Nicklaus. Watson, who posted a four-round total of 6-under 282, drew his 2-iron off the tee in between two bunkers and then proceeded to hole his sand wedge from 18 feet. He carefully played the par-5 18th before sinking a 20-foot birdie putt for a two-stroke victory. Nicklaus, who birdied the 15th to tie Watson for the lead, parred the last three holes for a 69 and a 72-hole score of 284. Meanwhile, Watson had moved ahead with a 35-foot birdie putt from the fringe on the par-5 14th but then fell back into a tie with a bogey 5 on No. 16. Bruce Devlin, at age 44, led the championship after 36 holes but Watson made his move with a third-round 68 and shared the 54-hole lead with Bill Rogers, who won the 1981 Open Championship at Royal St. George’s.

1972 U.S. OPEN
Jack Nicklaus won his third U.S. Open at Pebble Beach Golf Links, which was hosting the championship for the first time. His 72-hole score of 2-over 290 was three strokes ahead of Bruce Crampton and four better than Arnold Palmer. A key moment in the final round came when Nicklaus, who won the Masters two months earlier, stood over an 8-foot bogey putt on the 12th hole at the same time Palmer attempted a 10-foot birdie putt on No. 14. Nicklaus’ went in while Palmer’s missed in the Golden Bear maintained a one-shot lead. Nicklaus, who either led or was tied for the lead throughout the championship, followed with three pars and a birdie. He then hit the flagstick on 218-yard, par-3 17th with a 1-iron that left him with a 6-inch birdie putt and a four-stroke cushion.
