1978 U.S. Open Winner and Scores

The 1978 U.S. Open was the 78th time the tournament was played.

Winner: Andy North, 285

Where it was played: Cherry Hills Country Club in Cherry Hills Village, Colorado

Tournament dates: June 15-18, 1978

Leader after first round: Hale Irwin, 69

Leader after second round: Andy North, 140

Leader after third round: Andy North, 211

Notable Notes: Andy North held on to win by one stroke over Dave Stockton and J.C. Snead. Stockton missed a par putt on the final hole to make it easier for North, and Snead missed a birdie putt that would have made it tougher for North. North made it hard enough on himself, however, bogeying the last.
