And the winner of the U.S. Open is…

Webb Simpson! The 26-year-old from North Carolina won the U.S. Open in just his second time playing this major. He finished three groups ahead of Jim Furyk and Graeme McDowell, who led before the round started. Simpson shot a 2-under 68 and waited in the locker room while McDowell missed his final putt on the 18th, one that would’ve forced a Monday playoff. Michael Thompson and McDowell tied for second, one shot back.
