1983 U.S. Open: Winner and Scores

The 1983 U.S. Open was the 83rd time the tournament was played.

Winner: Larry Nelson, 280

Where it was played: Oakmont Country Club in Oakmont, Pennsylvania

Tournament dates: June 16-20, 1983

Leader after first round: Seve Ballesteros, Bob Murphy and John Mahaffey, 69

Leader after second round: John Mahaffey and Joey Rasselt, 141

Leader after third round: Seve Ballesteros and Tom Watson, 212

Notable Notes: Larry Nelson fought past Tom Watson to win the trophy. Nelson trailed Watson by one entering the final round, but Watson opened a 3-shot lead after nine holes of Round 4. However, from that point the momentum reversed, with Nelson making some birdies and Watson some bogeys. Watson had a putt on the final green to force a playoff, but missed.
