2002 US Open
Tiger Woods… enough said. Tiger was the only player under par at the 2002 US Open. The course was an absolute bear with every player in the field struggling to break par. Woods went wire-to-wire to hold off Phil and other big names- who really never gave Woods a run for his money.. Woods won his 2nd Major of the year and seemed likely to win another grand slam.
2009 US Open
Although the course didn’t play as hard as the ’02 US Open, it was still tough as nails. Mickelson seemed poised to win his first U.S. Open after eagling the 13th on Sunday to tie Lucas Glover for the lead. Glover went on to birdie the 16th and par out to edge Mickelson, who finished second at the US Open for a fifth time. Other names at the top included Rickey Barnes and Mike Weir.
After a rough season for Nick Watney, he held his composure throughout Sunday to fend off Sergio Garcia and Brandt Snedeker to win his fifth PGA Tour Event. Garcia seemed to pull a classic ‘Sergio choke’ moment halfway through the round allowing Watney to pull away.
I’m sure almost all of us would like to forget this one, or maybe it’s just my personal bias. Rickie Fowler seemed poised for a comeback, giving the leaders a run for their money. Eventually Patrick Reed went on to knock in a short putt and win by two.
