PGA U.S. Open Results: 2009
The 2009 U.S. PGA U.S. Open was played at the Black Course at Bethpage Black State Park in Farmingdale, N.Y fom June 18-22.
The par-70 course played at 7,426 yards, making it the second-longest U.S. PGA U.S. Open course in history. It ended up playing even longer as heavy rains flooded most of the weekend, pushing the conclusion of the final round to Monday.
1. Lucas Glover (-4). The 29-year-old won his first major championship by shooting a final round 73. A birdie on 16 on Monday afternoon all but sealed the victory. He sprang into contention after firing a 64 in the second round.
T2. Ricky Barnes (-2). The American amateur held the lead after rounds two and three but bogeyed five out of the first nine holes in the final round.
T2. David Duval (-2). The world's former top-ranked player more than a decade ago, Duval climbed from obscurity onto the leaderboard. He actually won a U.S. PGA U.S. Open qualifier to earn his spot in the field. After an opening-round 67, Duval failed to crack 70 the rest of the way.
T2. Phil Mickelson (-2). Lefty was the people's champion when Bethpage first hosted the PGA U.S. Open in 2002 after sharing high fives and rousing interaction with the playful gallery. Mickelson was tied for the lead after an eagle at No. 13 on Monday, but his short game let him down once again from there. It was Mickelson's last tournament before he took an extended leave of absence to be with his wife, who had been diagnosed with breast cancer.
5. Ross Fisher (-1). The Englishman shot a 72 in the final round--his worst score of the tournament.
T6. Tiger Woods (E). The world's No. 1 entered as both the defending U.S. PGA U.S. Open champion and the defending PGA U.S. Open champ at Bethpage, recording the only score in red figures when he won it here in 2002. Woods couldn't overcome a first-round 74, though, in 2009. He had far too many missed birdies on the greens to make a serious run at the title.
T10. Mike Weir (+2). The Canadian looked like he might earn his second major championship after posting a first-round 64 to take the lead. He shot back to back 74s over the final two rounds, though.
