Gary Woodland held off Brooks Koepka and Justin Rose to claim a three-shot win and maiden major victory at the US Open.

Woodland took a one-shot advantage into the final round and never lost his lead during a thrilling Sunday at Pebble Beach, holing a 35-foot birdie at the last to close a two-under 69 and finish on 13-under 271.

Koepka fell just short in his bid for a third consecutive US Open title despite a second successive 68, leaving him in second spot on 10 under, as Rose’s challenge for a first major win since 2013 faded with a final-round 74.
