1998 U.S. Open
Recap and Scores for the 1998 US Open Golf Tournament

The 1998 U.S. Open was played on the Lake Course of the Olympic Club in San Francisco. Payne Stewart led each of the first three rounds, but someone was chasing him - Lee Janzen. Janzen chased and caught Stewart to win the 1993 U.S. Open, and he chased and caught Stewart to win this one, too.

It didn't appear likely at the start of the final round. Janzen bogied two of his first three holes, and that point he was seven strokes behind Stewart. But over his remaining 15 holes, Janzen carded four birdies and no bogies, shooting a round of 68.

That 68 was one of only three sub-par rounds on Sunday. And neither of the other two came from Stewart or other contenders. Stewart wound up with a 74 in the final round. And Janzen wound up with the 1-stroke victory.

The 1998 U.S. Open was the last one in which Jack Nicklaus made the cut (he played only two more after this one). Nicklaus finished tied for 43rd at 15-over par.

It was also the first one in which a competitor rode in a cart. Casey Martin, suffering from a birth defect that caused the withering of his right leg, qualified for the tournament. He earlier, after being denied a cart by the PGA Tour, successfully sued the PGA Tour under the Americans With Disabilities Act for the right to use a motorized cart. The USGA honored that legal decision, and Martin rode in a cart between shots, made the cut and finished 23rd.
