U.S. OPEN CHAMPIONSHIP
Pinehurst No 2
North Carolina, USA 17 Jun 1999 - 20 Jun 1999
Tough Work at Pinehurst
Four players - World No. 1 David Duval, Phil Mickelson, Billy Mayfair, and Paul Goydos - head the US Open leaderboard after the 1st round, posting 3-under-par 67s, while much of the field had to work hard on the tough Pinehurst No. 2 course to keep their scores intact. Overnight rain had slowed the greens slightly, but their speed still caused problems throughout the field.
Stewart wins second US Open title
In a dramatic finish to the US Open, Payne Stewart held on to his overnight lead to take the title by one stroke from Phil Mickelson, a further stroke ahead of Tiger Woods and Vijay Singh. On a damp afternoon, which saw the leaders scrambling to take the advantage, Payne Stewart finally rolled in a 15-foot putt for par at the 18th and his second US Open title. Leading European was Darren Clarke who tied for 10th spot.

Stewart leads US Open by one
Just as he did twelve months ago, Payne Stewart leads the US Open going in to the final round. He holds a one-stroke lead over his closest challenger, Phil Mickelson, who is just a further stroke ahead of Tiger Woods and Tim Herron. Leading European is Miguel Angel Jiménez, six strokes off the pace. With the elements and the course conspiring to make conditions as tough as possible for the world’s best, the final day at Pinehurst No.2 is set up to be another classic Major duel.
Stewart, Duval, Mickelson head US Open
Phil Mickelson, David Duval and Payne Stewart are tied at the top of the US Open leaderboard after two rounds, on three-under-par 137, on a day when there were only three sub-par rounds compared to 14 in the first round. The leading European Tour members are Jesper Parnevik on 2 over, with Darren Clarke and Miguel Angel Jiménez at 3 over, and Colin Montgomerie and Phil Price at 4 over. But perhaps the saddest man at Pinehurst was José Maria Olazábal, who had to withdraw after he broke a bone in his hand.
