The Golf Blog says: The final round of this year’s US Open at the much maligned Chambers Bay outside of Tacoma had a lot of drama. Rory McIlroy (E), Adam Scott (-3), and Louis Oosthuizen (-4)–all major winners–made late charges, successively, that put some pressure on the leaders. But, as the final two groups finished, they would provide all the drama that will forever define this year’s U.S. Open. Jordan Spieth, golf’s new golden boy, birdied the 16th with a bomb to go to -6, but then double bogeyed 17, and had a chance for eagle on 18 but settled for birdie to finish at -5.
One group behind, Dustin Johnson birdied the 17th and had a chance to win the U.S. Open with a 12-foot eagle putt on 18. But DJ hit his 1st first putt too hard and failed to make the five-foot come-backer. It was another excruciating collapse for DJ at a major.
With the win, Jordan Spieth has won the first two majors of the year and still has a chance at winning the Grand Slam, all at the age of 21. Congrats, Jordan! If Chambers Bay never hosts a major again given all the criticism of the site, it will go down in history as the site of the ascendance of Jordan Spieth to the best U.S. player in golf and perhaps the best player in the world. Dustin Johnson’s familiar collapse will become a distant memory. It’s the Jordan Era.
