Spieth follows up Masters title with victory at US Open
Jordan Spieth has won the US Open, taking his second major of the season. The young Texan emerged victorious after a fellow American blew the chance to seal the win on the final hole.
The winner of this year’s Masters, Jordan Spieth shot a one-under-par 69 on Sunday’s final round at Chambers Bay, Washington on Sunday, to finish the tournament with a five-under total of 275 to claim the US Open title.
This made the 21-year-old Spieth the youngest man to win the US Open since the legendary Bobby Jones did so in 1923. It also makes him the first golfer to win the Masters and the US Open in the same year since Tiger Woods pulled it off in 2002.
