A tournament like the U.S. Open deserves a outcome of luxury, and, once again, did not disappoint anyone. With conditions more benign than in previous years improved the outcome of Tiger Woods (-12) nineteen years ago and there was excitement and surprise until the last hole. The first was prompted by the uncertainty of knowing who would be the champion, if the novice in these matters , Gary Woodland , or the number one in the world, Brooks Koepka. And the second one starred it is this latter, which extended its big moment in the majors of 2019 (second in the Masters and champion in the PGA Championship) with a runner-up position this week, in which no one had counted with him despite of being the double defending champion.
But Woodland proved to be a player as the cup of a pine tree from the beginning, when we squeezed in the lead of their fellow party Justin Rose. His three victories earlier in the PGA Tour helped him to not break down and continue faithful to his game quiet and orderly. He knew that his good times were coming, and two birdies early (in holes 2 and 3) we tempered the mood. Then we got nervous when it failed in the middle part of the back (bogeys in the 9 and the 12) and came up with danger Koepka, because I knew that the best was yet to come. With two new hits last (14 and 18), Gary (-13) made it clear that they had deserved the win.
However, the drama came to the end, when Koepka (-10) threw for eagle on 18, while Woodland (-12) fought for the couple in the 17. The comfortable lead that it had enjoyed in Kansas in the last hours, you could fade in a matter of seconds. And then this had to blow most important of his career, which had to be crossed end-to-end the penultimate green of Pebble Beach. Surprisingly, he decided to play it for high instead of kicking and the risk was worth it: the left given and with the championship in the pocket, since his opponent was only able to meet the couple. So, to Woodland it was enough for him to sign a quiet hole final to win the most important trophies, but prefierió doing it big: with a birdie, as a champion.
The performance of the Spanish was correct, in the case of Sergio Garcia (+4) and Rafa Cabrera (+6); excellent, in the Adri Arnaus (+5) and pride, in the of Jon Rahm (-8). The citys already was satisfied with overcoming the cut in a big after two years, while the canary islands we weighed the conditions of the field as they hardened a little. The Catalan, in his first large, gave the bell holding the type against the best in the world, while the basque made it clear that her moment of glory is getting closer. Signed his best result in a Grand Slam tournament (third) and ended up with the best card of the week (68), demonstrating that in pressure situations it defends itself from marvel. Make five birdies on the final day of a Open of the united States is not easy, but Jon is prepared for the maximum. The British Open in July, is waiting for him.Translated from ABC News https://www.abc.es/deportes/abci-gary-woodland-corona-pebble-beach-201906170348_noticia.html
