Zach Johnson becomes a two-time major champion after claiming the Open Championship at St. Andrews in a three-player, four-hole playoff.
Spieth left the door open for Johnson at Chambers Bay, but the big-hitter couldn’t capitalize, giving the Texan his second major.

The current top-ranked player has won the Open Championship only three times. The future champion is much more likely to come from the field.
Notes from the U.S. Open. Rory McIlroy shot an impressive first-round 65. Many players found the opening 199-yard, par-3 10th hole a little daunting. Congressional is the second longest course in U.S. Open history.
