How much each player won at the 2019 U.S. Open



Gary Woodland withstood an onslaught from Brooks Koepka to win the 2019 U.S. Open and with it take home the winner’s check for $2.25 million. That’s just under $1 million more than Graeme McDowell ($1.35 million) won when he claimed the U.S. Open title at Pebble Beach back in 2010.

Erik van Rooyen’s ankle-shy pants caused quite a stir at The Open



Erik van Rooyen’s 68 in round two vaulted him up the leaderboard and into contention on Friday morning at Royal Portrush. But while the South African’s golf has been impressive over the opening two days at The Open, it’s van Rooyen’s pants which have got everyone talking.

The 29-year-old’s ankle shy red pants on Friday were such a hot topic that they even dominated the chatter during his post-round media duties. Following his second round, van Rooyen was asked seven questions by the press, and five of those were about his pants.

Speaking on the pants in question, van Rooyen confidently stated after his round

“I like the fact that it’s a little bit different yet still classy at the same time. It’s not out there and whacky with a bunch of flashy colors … If you’re going to wear it, you’ve got to own it. I feel like I’m owning it.”

However, while the South African may feel that way, his trousers received a much more mixed reaction on social media.

What’s your take on Erik van Rooyen’s polarizing pants, WRXers?

Strong start, then tremendous misfortune: David Duval cards a 13 after playing the wrong ball



David Duval suffered a nightmare first round at Royal Portrush on Thursday, and during his opening nine, the 2001 Claret Jug winner recorded the highest score on a single hole at The Open for 69 years.

The 47-year-old came to the par-5 seventh hole having played his previous two holes five-over-par, but that was nothing compared to what Duval was about to experience.

Duval played the wrong ball on the seventh hole, and his entire play on the hole even managed to confuse the official scoreboard. The former Open Champion was initially credited with a triple-bogey eight on the par-5, which was then adjusted to a whopping 15, before being changed to a 13.

As you would expect, Twitter had plenty to say on the octuple bogey.


Thursday afternoon, the R&A announced on The Open’s website that Duval’s score had again been adjusted from a 13 to a 14, stating

“The adjustment was made following an error in reviewing his score on the 7th hole. David lost his first two balls from the tee and then played a wrong ball for the third ball played from the tee. On discovering the mistake at the green he had to return to where the wrong ball was played but the correct ball could not be found. Therefore he had to play again from the tee for a fourth time under penalty of stroke and distance. He played six shots in completing the hole with the fourth ball from the tee. He incurred a two-shot penalty for playing the wrong ball but the strokes played with the wrong ball do not count in his score (Rule 6.3c).”

The correction results in Duval’s opening round becoming 91, 20-over-par.
