Who Is The Oldest Golfer To Win A U.S. Open?

In Golf, the most important tournaments are the four major championships. The majors, including the U.S. Open, are usually dominated by younger golfers. But, every now and then, one of the older golfers gets hot and makes a run at a major.

So who is the oldest U.S. Open winner in golf? 

1. Hale Irwin, 1990 U.S. Open (Medinah, Ill.): 45 years, 15 days

2. Ted Ray, 1920 U.S. Open (Inverness Club, Ohio): 43 years, 4 months, 16 days 

Active golfers who could set the record:

Phil Mickelson: 46 years old, turns 47 on June 17

Steve Stricker: 50 years old, turns 51 next February.
