Gary Woodland wins U.S. Open at Pebble Beach

Koepka reveals shocking disdain for hot beverages

Koepka reveals shocking disdain for hot beverages

The American has birdied two of his first three holes to move to within three shots off the lead alongside South African Louis Oosthuizen at nine-under par.

The U.S. Open victor also receives a 10-year exemption in the event, a five-year exemption on the PGA Tour, and five-year exemptions into the Masters, PGA Championship and British Open. The PGA Tour's Twitter video has since amassed over five million views, higher than any other golf video this year.

Per ESPN, Woodland's 30-foot birdie on the 18th hole at Pebble Beach helped him win the 2019 U.S. Open as he finished with a 13 under par score.

"He deserves it", Koepka said.

Woodland played for Division II Washburn University on a basketball scholarship, but ultimately transferred to Kansas after his freshman year to play golf on a scholarship. "There's nothing like playing in an Open Championship".

Gary Woodland is seeking his first major championship in a U.S. Open that features unusually low scoring for Pebble Beach. "They were ranked No. 1 in Division I, and we were ranked No. 2 in Division II".

"I thought this was a really good chance for me", Mickelson said. I told him when I got done he needs to slow down a little bit. His first game was in Allen Fieldhouse. Ten minutes later, Woodland became the fifth, thanks to a par save courtesy of a chip off the 17th green that almost went in, then a 30-foot birdie on 18 for the final dagger.

Woodland took time to acknowledge the role his own dad played in bringing him to this point, as well as the perspective he's gained in both his family's loss and its growth. I don't know how many back I'm going to be. A chip and a putt later, Woodland had a birdie and a two-shot lead.

Woods has never played Royal Portrush, which is hosting The Open for just the second time and first since 1951. A layup seemed to be the prudent shot, but it would make birdie very hard. The ball cleared the front greenside bunker and stopped in the rough just left of the green. "And I need to do 18 more holes of that, but just get a little bit more out of the round tomorrow than I did today".

"I'm looking forward to getting up there and taking a look at the golf course and trying to figure out", Woods said.

Many refuse to learn from that shame, but here we are today. "And we owe ourselves more than that". Reports suggest these shelters include large centers with dormitory-like accommodations.

Going into Sunday, Gary Woodland had led seven tournaments after 54 holes. If you're within three on the back nine, anything can happen.

The six-time runner-up, who needs a victory to complete the career Grand Slam of winning all four of the sport's Majors, shot 72 to finish at four-over 288 on his 49th birthday.

The chaos distracted Woodland early in the round.

Koepka started four shots behind in his bid to join Willie Anderson as the only players to go back-to-back-to-back in the toughest test in golf.

On Sunday it was different.

When this close call was over, Koepka finally took some time to reflect on the history he nearly made. A choice to be bold in the big moment he dreamed of. I didn't let myself get ahead at all today.

The USGA were well aware that this was a very important renewal when it came to player relations (something I wrote about last week) and there's no doubt that they erred on the side of caution. "I'm glad it's over with". When Butch Harmon retired recently, Woodland began working with Cowen on his full-swing also.

Woodland always imagined being at Allen Fieldhouse, not Pebble Beach. But after a magnificent week of golf that touched just about every possible heart string for even the coldest observer, you can't possibly be upset, either.

"Kind of an awkward number for me", he said.

"And so when I transitioned to golf the next year, that was the first time in my life I'd ever focused exclusively on golf".
