Upsets at the US Open are par for the course
Irish Examiner - over 4 years
Warren Montgomery One of the most famous upsets in golf took place at The Olympic Club but that wasn’t the only one in US Open history. And it might not have been the biggest. Here are five of the biggest upsets in golf that ensure the US Open often lives up to its name. 5. STEVE JONES Having had his career derailed for three seasons following a dirt-bike accident, Jones qualified for the 1996 US Open at Oakland Hills. He opened with a 74, seven shots behind the leaders, then rallied with a 66 to get back into the hunt. Tom Lehman had a tournament-best 65 in the third round to take the outright lead, and Jones joined him in the last group with Davis Love III making a move on the last day. Love bogeyed the 17th and left a 20-foot birdie putt three feet short on 18, missing that for another bogey and a 69. Lehman, tied for the lead on the 18th, saw his tee shot take a funny hop into the bunker, leaving him no chance to reach the green. Jones two-putted for par and Lehman missed ...

Lee Elder: First Black Golfer At Masters, 37 Years Ago Today
News One for Black America - almost 5 years
Of the few iconic African-American professional golfers, Lee Elder arguably remains the one who left the most indelible mark on the sport. SEE ALSO: Gumbel: I Was Embarrassed by Today ‘Co-Host’ Palin Thirty-seven years ago today Elder became the first black golfer ever to play in the Masters. He broke down racial barriers and paved the way for an entire generation of black golfers, most notably setting the stage for Tiger Woods‘ success at golf’s top US tournament. In a 2010 interview, Elder, now 76, recalled the details of that day in April 1975. He told Golfweek: My tee time was 11:15, with Gene Littler. It had been misting rain early in the morning. When I exited through the clubhouse door, the sun broke through. The headlines of the paper the next day said, “Elder brought sunshine to a most dismal day.” I shot 74. I bogeyed the last two holes. I had a decent round going. The next day, I was paired with Miller Barber. I didn’t play too well. I wasn’t used to all the slo ...
