As after each round of Majors, find our little useful figures to feed your office discussions the day after a last breathless round of the US Open!
Scheffler in good company
Scottie Scheffler failed to join Tiger Woods by winning the US Open with the world number 1 label. But he is in good company among the number 1 in the world to have finished in 2nd place at the American Open: Tiger Woods (2005, 2007), Brooks Koepka (2019) and therefore Scottie Scheffler (2022).
Fitzpatrick cas unique
13th player to win theUS Open after a victory atUS Amateur, Matthew Fitzpatrick is the first non-American to achieve this feat.
To win his first Major title, the little english has developed power but without sacrificing its legendary precision. On Sunday, he hit 17 greens in regulation. What had only happened twice in Majors in the last 30 years: Nick Faldo au Masters in 1996 and Brooks Koepka at the US Open in 2017.
Zalatoris le cumulard
Still no victory in the Grand Slam tournament, nor on the PGA Tourpour Will Zalatorisalready second last month in the PGA Championship after losing in the play-off against Justin Thomas. On the other hand, he is the first player to have 6 top 10 in Majors with just 9 starts.
To comfort Rory
Now number 2 in the world behind Scottie Scheffler, Rory McIlroy recorded his 4th consecutive top 10 finish at the US Open. For the first time in his career, he has also just finished in the top 10 of the first three Majors of the season.
Morikawa se reprend
Disappointing in the 3rd round with his worst score (77) in Major, Collin Morikawa wanted to finish his tournament well. His card of 66 (-4) on Sunday allows him to enter the top 5 of the US Open and he is the only one to have finished in the top 5 in the last two editions!
