US Open 2023: Wyndham Clark holds off Rory McIlroy to claim first major title in Los Angeles

Breaking news

American Wyndham Clark produced a nerveless display as he held off Rory McIlroy to win the US Open at the Los Angeles Country Club.

The 29-year-old, carded a level-par 70 to claim his first major and the $3.6m (£2.8m) winner’s cheque at 10 under, one stroke clear of McIlroy.

World number one Scottie Scheffler was third, two shots further adrift.

Joint overnight leader Rickie Fowler slipped to a disappointing five-over 75 as he finished in a tie for fifth.

Fowler’s bogey at the 18th was one of seven overall as he fell away to end up a shot behind reigning Open champion Cameron Smith, who made three birdies on the back nine during a late charge.

Australia’s Min Woo Lee and Tommy Fleetwood also ended the championship on five under, with the Englishman making eagles on the sixth and 14th holes as he delivered the lowest round of the day with a seven-under 63.

It saw the 32-year-old, who also made four birdies, create history as he became the first player to shoot 63 twice at the US Open and the fourth player after Greg Norman, Vijay Singh and Brooks Koepka to post multiple 63s in major championships.
