Gary Woodland had three putts from 30 feet to win his maiden major title after a dramatic final day of the 119th US Open, but the champion needed only one!
Woodland held off a valiant challenge from two-time defending champion Brooks Koepka and played superb golf down the stretch to maintain his lead over the chasing pack, including a stunning par save on the 17th.
Three composed shots down the iconic final hole left him looking at a lengthy putt for a four, and he would have been perfectly happy to lag to a few inches, mark his ball and wait for playing partner Justin Rose to hole out.

But his putt trundled down the slope on a great line, and his ball dropped into the centre of the cup to complete a 69 and three-shot triumph on 12 under par, sparking wild celebrations from his family waiting behind the green.
