Thompson grabs another runner-up finish at Olympic
Casey Wittenberg, who followed a round of 67 with a 70 on Sunday, also finished at 285 to qualify next year.
While Jansen’s ball tumbled out like a gift from above after several minutes, giving him a chance to pull off a miracle chip-in par en route to a stunning upset of Payne Stewart, Westwood’s disappeared for good.
It wasn’t the same cypress tree that Jansen found, as that tree and numerous others have since been cut down. But it was in the same area.
Westwood used binoculars to try to find his ball Sunday but couldn’t, forcing him back to the tee. He made a double bogey, dropped from three shots back to five off the lead.
He’d make up for it with an eagle on No. 17, but would finish tied for 10th at 5-over 285, four shots behind the winner.
After winning 35 times worldwide, Westwood is regarded as the best current player to have never won a major.
So he gave his caddie a rest and gave his dad, Wyoming club pro Mark Bradley, the bag.
“It was the highlight of my life,” said Mark Bradley, who helped his son to an 18-over 298 finish. “It was really a wonderful experience, to be walking the fairway with my son. It was certainly one of the highlights of my career as a golfer. I’m a golf professional myself. I love my son, and he loves me. To walk down the 18th at a U.S. Open is a dream come true.
