Woodland claims first major at U.S. Open with final round 69

Gary Woodland held his nerve to claim his first major with a three-shot victory at the U.S. Open, bringing Brooks Koepka’s two-year reign to an end.Woodland had not managed a top-10 finish in his first 27 majors before last year’s PGA Championship, where he tied for sixth, but he handled the final round with the composure of someone who had been playing for golf’s biggest prizes his entire career.Woodland carded a two-under 69 to keep Koepka from becoming the first man in more than a century to sweep three straight U.S. Opens.World number one Koepka went down fighting, finishing with a three-under 68 to leave him three short of Woodland’s winning total of 13-under 271.
