Matt Fitzpatrick won the US Open championship outlasting Scottie Scheffler and Will Zalatoris at The Country Club by a single stroke.
The Englishman came into the final round tied for the lead with Zalatoris and shot a final-round 2-under 68 to prevail.
Matt Fitzpatrick joins Jack Nicklaus as the only other player to win both the US Open and US Amateur on the same course.
The win was Fitzpatrick’s first on the PGA Tour having posted seven career victories on the DP World Tour already. He finished as the only player to not go over par with scores of 68, 70, 68, and 68 en route to his win.
A 48-foot putt for birdie at the par-4 13th, and another long birdie putt at the par-4 15th were his highlights for the day along with a par on the 18th.
After his drive landed in the fairway bunker on the final hole, he was still able to land his next shot on the green, going on to make par and finish the tournament at 6-under.
Zalatoris meanwhile finished as runner-up at a major for the second time in his career. Last month, the 25-year-old lost to Justin Thomas in a playoff at the PGA Championship.
Despite his dominant showings at majors, Zalatoris is still searching for his first win on TOUR.
Rory McIlroy, who hasn’t won a major since 2014, entered the final round three strokes back at 1-under and immediately made a statement with a birdie at the first. He had a roller-coaster of a front nine making two more birdies and three bogeys to make the turn at even for his round.
Back-to-back birdies on Nos. 14 and 15 got the 33-year-old to 2-under for the tournament, good enough for a tie for fifth with Collin Morikawa.
