1998 US Open

 

The 1998 U.S. Open was the 98th edition of the tournament.

Winner: Lee Janzen, 280

Where it was played: Olympic Club (Lake Course) in San Francisco, California

Tournament dates: June 18-21, 1998

Leader after first round: Payne Stewart, 66

Leader after second round: Payne Stewart, 137

Leader after third round: Payne Stewart, 207

Notable Notes: Entering the final round, it was Payne Stewart's tournament to lose, and he lost it. Or, rather, Lee Janzen won it. Stewart led by four strokes entering the final round, and by five over Janzen. Stewart's final-round 74 was not terrible, but Janzen's 68 was much better. Good enough to generate a one-stroke victory for Janzen, who won the U.S. Open for the second time. At one point in the final round, Janzel trailed by seven.
