Jordan Spieth wins 2015 US Open at Chambers Bay

JORDAN Spieth has won the US Open, triumphing by one shot over Dustin Johnson to claim his second major tournament victory in a row.

The golf prodigy who broke through for his first major victory at the US Masters in March held his nerve on the nightmare Bell Chambers course in Washington.

Spieth shot a one-under 69 to finish at five-under, one clear of Johnson (70) and Louis Oosthuizen (67).

The 21-year-old now has a shot at winning the Grand Slam.

“I’m still in shock,” Spieth said with the gleaming U.S. Open trophy at his side. “I’ve never experienced a feeling like this. It was a very intense back nine.”

With Spieth in the club-house Johnson had a chance to win on the last with a 12-foot putt for eagle which would have closed out the tournament. Even a birdie would have forced an 18-hole play-off on Monday but he three putted for par to remain four-under and hand victory to Spieth.

I’m still amazed that I won, let alone that we weren’t playing tomorrow,” Spieth said. “So for that turnaround right there, to watch that happen, I feel for Dustin, but I haven’t been able to put anything in perspective yet.”

Spieth had earlier double-bogeyed the 17th to slip back to four-under and give Johnson a sniff at his first Major title. Spieth’s birdie on the final hole took him to five-under and Johnson was unable to get the job done.

In an incredible effort Jordan becomes the youngest EVER player to win the Masters & the US Open in the same year.

Jordan started the contest at 17-1 and best odds of 80-1 were offered on day 3 of the tournament.
