Gary Woodland of the United States of America won the 2019 US Open Championship at Pebble Beach Golf Links in California.

The triumph is the 35-year-first old's major championship win. Woodland finished the tournament at 13-under par, holding off World No. 1 Brooks Koepka in the final round. With a score of 10-under par, two-time defending champion Koepka finished second.

The Topeka, Kansas native recorded a 271 at Pebble Beach, the lowest ever in a US Open, beating Tiger Woods by one stroke in 2000.

Woodland, 35, played basketball for a year at Washburn before enrolling at Kansas on a Golf scholarship.
Gary Woodland, who entered the tournament ranked 25th and had never placed in the top 20 of the US Open before, was widely regarded as a surprise winner. Koepka had won four of the previous nine majors and was seeking to become the first player since 1905 to win three consecutive US Open.

Woodland led by two strokes after 36 holes after shooting 68 in the first round and 65 in the second. He fired a third-round 69 to take a one-stroke lead over Justin Rose heading into the final day. For the first time in eight stroke-play competitions, he turned a 54-hole lead into a victory after shooting a 69 in the final round. His winning score of 13-under-par 271, which included a 34-hole stretch without a bogey, was the lowest relative to par since 2011. Woodland was the best scrambler in the field, having started the week ranked 169th.

Gary's 18th career victory came on June 16, 2019, when he won the 119th US Open Championship in California.

The tournament's total prize pool was $12,500,000, with the winner taking home $2,250,000. Gary Woodland, who had a one-shot lead going into the final round, birdied two of his first three holes and, despite a bogey at the ninth, was still two shots ahead of the field at the turn in the championship. Brooks Koepka, on the other hand, was four-under through five holes but missed a six-foot putt for birdie on the par-5 6th from a greenside bunker and a six-foot putt for birdie on the 7th to trail by two going to the bogey 9th.
