Jordan Spieth birdied the 18th hole at Chambers Bay on Sunday to win the 115th U.S. Open by one stroke, becoming the sixth player to capture the first two legs of the Grand Slam in the same year.
Spieth, who won the Masters in April going away, watched as Dustin Johnson three-putted the final hole to hand him the championship and make him the first since Gene Sarazen in 1922 to win multiple majors before his 22nd birthday.
“I’m in shock,” said Spieth, 21, who became the youngest U.S. Open winner since Bob Jones in 1923.
Spieth double bogeyed the 17th hole, but rallied on the par-5 18th to take a one-stroke lead over Johnson and Louis Oosthuizen, who birdied six of his last seven holes for a 67.
Johnson missed a 15-foot eagle putt on 18 for the victory and then missed a birdie to force a playoff.
