Event: U.S. Open.
Winner: Curtis Strange.
Runner-up: Chip Beck, Mark McCumber, Ian Woosnam.
Margin: 1 shot.
Recap: Curtis Strange became the first player since Ben Hogan in 1951 to win back-to-back in the U.S. Open, following his playoff win over Nick Faldo in 1988 at The Country Club. This time, he had to stage a Sunday rally. Strange shot 64 in the second round, only to fade to a 73 on Saturday as Tom Kite posted his third straight round in the 60s to build a three-shot lead. Kite collapsed on Sunday with a 78, and Strange took it from there. He made 15 straight pars before a birdie on the 16th hole. With a two-shot lead, he safely three-putted for bogey on the 18th for a 70.
Event: Ryder Cup.
Score: 14 1/2-13 1/2.
