Woodland holds off Koepka to win U.S. Open

Gary Woodland won the 119th U.S. Open by three strokes over Brooks Koepka at Pebble Beach on Sunday to capture his first major championship.

Woodland, 35, made a long birdie putt on 18 to shoot a 2-under 69 on the final day to finish at 13 under for the tournament.

Koepka, who was trying to become the first player since Willie Anderson in 1905 to win three straight U.S. Opens, finished with a 68 on Sunday and became the first player to shoot all four rounds of a U.S. Open in the 60s and fail to win.
