2001 U.S. Open
Recap and Scores for the 2001 US Open Golf Tournament

Southern Hills Country Club was the site of the 2001 U.S. Open, which required an extra 18 holes of playoff before the champion was determined. That champion turned out to be Retief Goosen, but Goosen made it hard on himself.

Mark Brooks, the 1996 PGA Championship winner, was playing a couple groups ahead of Goosen in the fourth round. When Brooks reached the final green he and Goosen shared the lead.

But Brooks proceeded to 3-putt the 72nd green, falling a stroke behind Goosen. When Goosen reached the 18th hole, he still held that one-stroke lead over Brooks. It appeared Goosen was going to win outright when he left a birdie try only two feet outside the cup. But then Goosen missed that 2-footer, and he and Brooks finished the fourth round tied at 4-under 276.

That necessitated an 18-hole playoff on Monday, and Goosen finally secured the trophy by shooting 70 to Brooks' 72.

Tiger Woods finished tied for 12th, breaking his streak of four straight wins in major championships.
