The Country Club in Brookline, Massachusetts, provided a challenging but fair test for the field at this week’s 2022 U.S. Open, setting up for a thrilling finish on Father’s Day.
Just how good was the Sunday’s final-round action? When the leaders in the last group were on the 15th hole, each of the top six players on the leaderboard was ranked inside the top 20 of the Official World Golf Ranking.
The last three U.S. Opens held at The Country Club all went to a playoff but that trend was bucked this year as Matt Fitzpatrick claimed the win at 6 under, one shot ahead of world No. 1 Scottie Scheffler and Will Zalatoris. The win is Fitzpatrick’s first major title and made him just the 13th player to win the U.S. Amateur and U.S. Open, and the first to accomplish the feat at the same golf course since Jack Nicklaus won his second U.S. Amateur and third U.S. Open at Pebble Beach.
Fitzpatrick shot a 2-under 68 in the final round for his first win since the 2021 Andalucía Masters on the DP World Tour.
