1974 US Open

 

The 1974 U.S. Open was the 74th time the tournament was played.

Winner: Hale Irwin, 287

Where it was played: Winged Foot Golf Club in Mamaroneck, New York

Tournament dates: June 13-16, 1974

Leader after first round: Gary Player, 70

Leader after second round: Gary Player, Hale Irwin, Arnold Palmer and Raymond Floyd, 143

Leader after third round: Tom Watson, 213

Notable Notes: The so-called "Massacre at Winged Foot" happened this year with a winning score of 7-over par. That was one year after Johnny Miller had scorched the final round of the 1973 U.S. Open with a 63. Many golfers at the time blamed Miller's round the previous year for the USGA deciding to set up Winged Foot so difficult. The winner was Hale Irwin, whose 73 in Round 4 was good enough because Tom Watson, the third-round leader, collapsed with a 79. This was the first of three U.S. Open wins for Irwin.
