1988 US Open

 

The 1988 U.S. Open was the 88th time the tournament was played. The outcome was settled in an 18-hole playoff between Curtis Strange and Nick Faldo.

Winner: Curtis Strange, 278

Where it was played: The Country Club at Brookline, Massachussetts

Tournament dates: June 16-20, 1988

Leader after third round: Curtis Strange, 206

Notable Notes: Curtis Strange and Nick Faldo ended 72 holes tied at 278, so played off over an additional 18 holes. In the playoff, Strange led for much of the first 12 holes, although closely - his lead after the 12th was one stroke. But Strange edged away after that, birdying the 13th while Faldo bogied it, and never led by fewer than two. Strange eventually won it with a 71 to Faldo's 75.
