5 toughest US Opens
Question of the Day
A year earlier, on an Oakmont course softened by overnight rain, Johnny Miller became the first player to shoot 63 in the U.S. Open, and he remains the only player with a 63 in the final round of golf’s toughest test. The USGA made sure that didn’t happen at Winged Foot.
It was so difficult that no one was under par after any of the four rounds. The low score of the tournament was 67 by Hubert Green, and that was after he opened with an 81.
Tom Watson gave a glimpse of the star he was to become by taking the 54-hole lead at 3-over 213. But he staggered home in 41 shots on the back nine, and Hale Irwin closed with a 73 to capture the first of his three U.S. Opens. Irwin won at 7-over 287. There has not been a higher winning score in relation to par at any major since.
