2023 U.S. Open Winner and Scores

The 2023 U.S. Open golf championship was the 123rd time this major championship of men's professional was played. The winner was a first-time major champion.

Winner: Wyndham Clark, 270

Where it was played: Los Angeles Country Club (North Course) in Los Angeles, California

Tournament dates: June 15-18, 2023

Leaders after first round: Rickie Fowler and Xander Schauffele, 62

Leader after second round: Rickie Fowler, 130

Leaders after third round: Rickie Fowler and Wyndham Clark, 200

Notable notes: Little more than a month after winning for the first time on the PGA Tour, Wyndham Clark claimed the trophy at the 2023 U.S. Open. His only previous tour win was at the 2023 Wells Fargo Championship. Clark had never finished higher than 75th in any previous major.

Rickie Fowler held or shared the lead after each of the first three rounds. But Clark was only one stroke behind after 36 holes, and tied the lead following the third round. In the final round, several front-nine bogeys pushed Fowler off the pace, while Clark maintained the lead, or a share of it, trying to hold off Rory McIlroy.

Clark was one stroke in front of McIlroy as Clark stood on the 14th tee in the final round. But ahead on the green, McIlroy made his first bogey of the round. Clark then birdied the hole to open a three-stroke lead. He had to hold on late, though: Bogeys on the 15th and 16th holes cut Clark's margin back to one. But he got up-and-down for par off the green on No. 17, then two-putted for par on the last hole to win the trophy.

The 2023 U.S. Open included some low-scoring records and near-records. In the first round, Fowler set a new 18-hole scoring record in U.S. Open, becoming the first golfer ever to score 62. About 20 minutes later, Xander Schauffele added his own 62. In the second round, Fowler added a 68 to tie the U.S. Open record for lowest back-to-back rounds at 130. Fowler finished in a tie for fifth place, and Schauffele in a tie for 10th.

In the final round, Tommy Fleetwood carded a 63, becoming the first golfer with multiple rounds of 63 or better in U.S. Open play. He also had a 63 during the 2018 U.S. Open. And Clark's winning total of 270 was the second-best in tournament history to this point, two strokes off McIlroy's 72-hole U.S. Open scoring record set in 2011.
