1971 US Open

 

The 1971 U.S. Open was the 71st time the tournament was played. It ended in an 18-hole playoff between Jack Nicklaus and Lee Trevino.

Winner: Lee Trevino, 280

Where it was played: Merion Golf Club in Ardmore, Pennsylvania

Tournament dates: June 17-21, 1971

Leader after first round: Labron Harris, 67

Leader after second round: Jim Colbert and Bob Erickson, 138

Leader after third round: Jim Simons, 207

Notable Notes: Amateur Jim Simons had the third-round lead and played well in Round 4, but the final round was about Jack Nicklaus and Lee Trevino. After Trevino got in the clubhouse at 280, Nicklaus had a lengthy birdie putt to win on the 72nd hole, but just missed. So the two greats played an 18-hole playoff the next day. Trevino led by one at the turn, then played the back nine in 32 to beat Nicklaus by three, 68-71.
