1973 U.S. Open Golf Championship Winner and Scores

The 1973 U.S. Open was the 73rd time the tournament was played and it featured one of golf's most famous rounds.

Winner: Johnny Miller, 279

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

Tournament dates: June 14-17, 1973

Leader after first round: Gary Player, 67

Leader after second round: Gary Player, 137

Leader after third round: Arnold Palmer, Julius Boros, John Schlee and Jerry Heard, 210

Notable Notes: One of the most famous rounds in golf history happened here: Johnny Miller's final-round 63. Miller was a player of promise in the early 1970s, but his achievement here made him a star. Miller was six shots off the lead entering the final round, not in the Top 10. He started Round 4 with four straight birdies, kept hitting fairways and greens and making putts, and ended with the first round of 63 ever at one of golf's four professional majors. Miller took the clubhouse lead at 279 and waiting to see if anyone could catch him. Nobody did.
