PUMA Athlete Devynne Charlton breaks 16-year-old 60m hurdles world record
The 35-year-old American PGA tour professional held off a roaster of impressive players such as Justin Rose, current world number 4 and runner-up Brooks Koepka, the two-time defending champion. Closing in an exciting finish with a two-under-par 69, Gary Woodland won with a total of 271 strokes (13 under par), beating his closest rival by three strokes.
I played agressively and it paid off. Didn't ever let myself think the tournament was over!
The U.S. Open is one of four major golf championships of 2019. The Masters Tournament was the first, followed by the the PGA (Professional Golf Association) Championship, the U.S. Open and the British Open taking place in July.
