DeChambeau wins US Open

McIlroy made 3 bogeys in his last 4 holes to blow chance at major

Bryson with the U.S. Open trophy in hand

Rory McIlroy made three bogeys in his final four holes to blow the chance to end his 10-year wait for a major and allow Bryson DeChambeau to snatch the US Open.
All the while, battling Rory McIlroy in a back-nine duel, DeChambeau produced the “best shot of my life” out of a greenside bunker that nobody had successfully scrambled from all week, his 55-yard shot with a 55-degree wedge landing 4 feet from the pin.

"That was huge, to get up and down and win this prestigious championship - that will be the highlight of my life," added DeChambeau, who also won the title in 2020.

"Rory is one of the best to ever play," said DeChambeau. "Being able to fight against a great like that is pretty special. For him to miss that putt [on 18], I'd never wish it on anybody. Luckily, things went my way."

Bryson DeChambeau earnt his second major championship title (2020 & 2024 U.S. Open) in his 31st start in a major at the age of and is the 89th player to win multiple men’s majors (first since Scottie Scheffler won the 2024 Masters Tournament). He also becomes the 23rd multiple winner of the U.S. Open and first since Brooks Koepka in 2018.

Rory McIlroy records his 11th runner-up finish on the PGA Tour and fourth in a major championship (including back-to-back at the U.S. Open) which will be a record that Rory will not want to extend now we are 10 years on from his last Major win.

Elsewhere, playing with McIlroy, Patrick Cantlay was his usual methodical self but never heated up enough to really challenge the lead. Fellow American Tony Finau shot an excellent three-under 67 for his third round in the 60s to join Cantlay at four under.
Sweden's Ludvig Aberg had lit up Pinehurst through 36 holes but struggled on the weekend and an early triple-bogey effectively knocked him out of the running. He shot 73 to finish one over.
England's Tommy Fleetwood, the only player in US Open history to have multiple rounds of 63 on the final day, again excelled on Sunday, carding a 68 to finish on three over, one ahead of compatriot Aaron Rai.
However, it was a disappointing closing day for Tyrrell Hatton, who started at one under but slumped to six over with a final-round 77.
That did at least beat the world number one Scottie Scheffler, whose two-over 72 left him eight over par for the tournament alongside Northern Ireland's Tom McKibbin.
McIlroy is due to be back in action at the Travelers Championship, the latest of the PGA Tour's Signature Events.
The final men's major of the year is The Open, taking place at Royal Troon from July 18-21, where DeChambeau will again be among the pre-tournament favourites.
