G’Day For An Unlikely Aussie

As Mickelson Implodes, Ogilvy’s Steady Finish Wins The Championship

 MAMARONECK, N.Y. – Geoff Ogilvy never thought he would be the winner of the 106th U.S. Open. He was not alone in that thinking.

But a series of unlikely and improbable events over the closing holes led the 29-year-old Australian to the championship at Winged Foot Golf Club’s West Course Sunday evening. He also became the first Australian to win the U.S. Open since David Graham in 1981, at Merion Golf Club in Ardmore, Pa.

Ogilvy closed out a brutal four days with a 2-over-par 72 and finished at 5-over-par 285. Jim Furyk (70), Scotland’s Colin Montgomerie (71) and Phil Mickelson (74) finished tied for second at 6-over 286, while Ireland’s Padraig Harrington (71) finished alone in fifth place at 7-over 287.
