Where it was played: Baltusrol Golf Club in Springfield, New Jersey

Tournament dates: June 12-15, 1980

Leader after first round: Jack Nicklaus and Tom Weiskopf, 63

Notable Notes: Jack Nicklaus began the tournament by tying the 18-hole major scoring record with a 63, and he ended it by establishing a new 72-hole U.S. Open record (since broken) of 272. In-between, he battled Japanese star Isao Aoki. Nicklaus kept making shots in the final round and Aoki kept matching them. Nicklaus led by one going to the final hole, and birdied that one for the 2-stroke margin of victory. It was Nicklaus' fourth win in a U.S. Open, tying the tournament record.
