U.S. Open Notables
Sergio Garcia finished in a tie for 7th at 5-under. Garcia shot under par in three of the four rounds (he finished at even par for round two) recording 14 birdies, 9 bogies and 49 pars. It's the 16th time in his career he finished in the top 10 at a major.
Jason Day found himself in a familiar position when all was said and done on Sunday. The young Australian earned his second finish in as many majors this season. Day went bogey free during the final two rounds and recorded nine birdies to finish in second place by himself. Day finished in second place at The Masters just a couple of months ago.
It didn't look like Lee Westwood would have much to do with the U.S. Open after his opening round 75. Westwood recorded only two birdies and made six bogies to open the tournament. In his final three rounds he recorded just four bogies, nine birdies and an eagle to shoot his way into the top 10. His 6-under tournament total was good enough to finish in a tie for third place.
The PGA TOUR resumes control of the tournaments next weekend as the players head to Cromwell, Connecticut for the Travelers Championship. Bubba Watson is the defending champion.
