The threesome of Kevin Streelman, D.A. Points and Dong-Hwan Lee head into the afternoon sun on Friday. Streelman survived the cut, but his colleagues did not.
After a 69 in the second round, Nicolas Colsaerts earned quite a bit of airtime in the third round. He stumbled in the final round and finished T-27.
Matt Kuchar was among the favorites heading into the Open based on his past performance at Olympic and his recent win in the Players. Seven bogeys on Sunday derailed his chances, and he finished well off the pace.
Now we know Beau.
After two strong rounds to start, Tiger lost it on Saturday. Here he plays his second shot on No. 18.
David Toms missed this birdie attempt on No. 14. He posted a final round 68 to secure a T-4 finish.
Jim Furyk in the third round. At that point, the 5-hour energy was still working.
Graeme McDowell shot four-over par on Sunday's front nine before working his way back into contention. Here he tees off on No. 8.
Fredrik Jacobson made a move on Saturday with a 68. His Sunday didn't go as well, with a 75 dropping him to T-15.
Not birdwatching, ball hunting. Westwood's errant tee shot into the trees on No. 5 led to a double bogey and dropped him out of contention.
The shot that most likely cost Jim Furyk the U.S. Open. The usually-stoic veteran reacts to his snap hook on No. 16.
Webb Simpson worked his way into contention with a string of four birdies in five holes, but had to work for his par on 18.
Championship play: Webb Simpson's chip on No. 18 settled four feet from the hole, setting up a crucial par-saving putt.
Olympic gold medalist: U.S. Open champion Webb Simpson, here with the Jack Nicklaus Medal, is the 15th different winner in the last 15 majors.
