Jordan Spieth Wins US Open

Jordan Spieth is the 2015 US Open winner after carding a one-under 69 on Sunday at Chambers Bay to finish five-under for the tournament.  Spieth defeated South Africa’s Louis Oosthuizen and Dustin Johnson by one stroke to seal the title; his second Major in as many outings.  Inevitably people will now start talking and speculating as to whether the Texan can win all four Majors this year and complete a Grand Slam.  The 21- year old also won the Masters in April.

Spieth began with a bogey at the first before birdies at eight, 12 and 16 placed him on top of the leaderboard.  The American double bogeyed the par-3 17th before ending with a birdie on the 18th.  Oosthuizen bogeyed three in a row from the second to the fifth but had a strong back nine as he birdied every hole from 12 to 16 and then again on 18 to suddenly be in contention.
The 2010 Open winner shared second place with Johnson who shot an even-par 70, as he did on Saturday.  Johnson will know that had he just found one extra birdiie on Sunday, as well as the previous day, he might well have won the title this year.
Adam Scott, Cameron Smith and another South Africa, Branden Grace were all tied for fourth a further stroke back with yet another South Africa, Charl Schwartzel, the 2011 Masters champion, finishing seventh.
