1985 US Open

 

The 1985 U.S. Open was the 85th time the tournament was played. Andy North won his second trophy.

Winner: Andy North, 279

Where it was played: Oakland Hills Country Club in Bloomfield Hills, Michigan

Tournament dates: June 13-16, 1985

Leader after first round: T.C. Chen, 65

Leader after second round: T.C. Chen, 134

Leader after third round: T.C. Chen, 203

Notable Notes: For the first three rounds, T.C. Chen led and it appeared the Taiwanese golfer would become the first Asian player to win one of golf's professional majors. Then he tumbled in the final round to a 77, including an infamous double-hit on the fifth hole that contibuted to a quadruple bogey. Who took advantage? Andy North, whose 74 wasn't great, but just good enough to capture a 1-stroke victory.
