1999 U.S. Open
Recap and Scores for the 1999 US Open Golf Tournament

The indelible image from the 1999 U.S. Open is that of Payne Stewart thrusting his fist into the air, one leg kicked out behind him, after the winning putt found the cup on the 72nd hole of play. There is now a statue of Stewart's celebration pose behind the 18th green of the famed No. 2 course at Pinehurst Resort, site of the 1999 U.S. Open.

It was Stewart's second U.S. Open victory, the last of his three majors, and his final win on the PGA Tour. Stewart, 42 years old, died in a plane crash later in the year.

Stewart started the final round with a 1-stroke lead over Phil Mickelson, who was wearing a beeper because his wife Amy was due to give birth to their first child (Amy delivered the next day).

Mickelson took the lead after the 12th hole, but Stewart climbed back into a share when Mickelson bogied the 16th hole. Stewart regained the outright lead with a birdie to Mickelson's par on the 17th. And then Stewart sealed the championship with an 18-foot par putt on the final hole.
