Washington, United States: Jordan Spieth has won the 115th US Open Championship at Chambers Bay, becoming the youngest player in history to win the first two Majors of the year back-to-back.
Spieth, a Rolex Testimonee, shared a four-way tie for the lead on Sunday morning and shot a spirited final round 69 to finish on five-under 275, one shot clear of Louis Oosthuizen and Dustin Johnson, who needed to hole an eagle putt on the last green to win, but three-putted.
The Chambers Bay course was designed by Robert Trent Jones II, an Executive Member of the Asian Golf Industry Federation.
In previous appearances at the US Open, Texan Spieth collected low amateur honours in 2012 and finished tied 17th as a professional in 2014 at Pinehurst Resort.
A Rolex Testimonee since 2013, Spieth adds his name to a notable list of Rolex Testimonees – which includes Arnold Palmer, Jack Nicklaus and Tiger Woods – to have outlasted arguably the deepest field in American tournament golf.
Rolex Director of Image & Communication, Arnaud Boetsch, said: “At Rolex we are extremely pleased to congratulate Jordan Spieth. The US Open has a history of producing great champions and he is rightly amongst that class.”
Elsewhere in the top 20 were Rolex Testimonees Adam Scott (tied fourth), Jason Day (tied ninth) and Brooks Koepka (tied 18th).
Rolex has been a partner of the USGA, which conducts the US Open, since 1980. The Swiss watchmaker also supports the USGA’s other championships including the Walker Cup, the Curtis Cup, the US Women’s Open, the US Senior’s Open, the US Women’s Amateur and the US Amateur.
Rolex’s commitment to golf on the global stage spans the golfing calendar at elite and amateur levels.
