1984 U.S. Open: Warm and Fuzzy

The 1984 U.S. Open was the 84th time the tournament was played, and it went to an 18-hole playoff.

Winner: Fuzzy Zoeller, 276

Where it was played: Winged Foot Golf Club in Mamaroneck, New York

Tournament dates: June 14-18, 1984

Leader after first round: Jim Thorpe, Hale Irwin, Mike Donald and Hubert Green, 68

Leader after second round: Hale Irwin, 136

Leader after third round: Hale Irwin, 205

Notable Notes: Fuzzy Zoeller and Greg Norman tied at 276 after 72 holes, so they played an 18-hole playoff. And the playoff, unfortunately for Norman, was no contest. Zoeller won by eight strokes, 67 to 75. Both players started the playoff with birdies, but then Norman double-bogied, bogied and bogied, and never recovered.
