2012 US Open

 

The 2012 U.S. Open was the 112th one played, and Webb Simpson became a first-time major champion.

Winner: Webb Simpson, 281

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

Tournament dates: June 14-17, 2012

Leader after first round: Michael Thompson, 66

Leader after second round: Jim Furyk, David Toms and Tiger Woods, 139

Leader after third round: Jim Furyk and Graeme McDowell, 209

Notable Notes: Webb Simpson rallied from four strokes behind at the start of the final round to win by one over the third-round co-leaders. Furyk was tied with Simpson with three holes to play, but bogied the 16th and 18th holes of the final round. McDowell birdied the 71st hole to get within one of the lead, but couldn't find the final-hole birdie he needed to force a playoff. Simpson shot 68 in the final round to earn his first major championship victory.
