Goosen standing on the verge of glory
South Africa’s Retief Goosen returns to Southern Hills this morning attempting to win an 18-hole play-off and become just the third man from his country to lift the US Open trophy.
Goosen, 31, from St Pietersberg, a senior member of the European Tour, can follow in the footsteps of previous South African champions, Gary Player (1965) and Els (1994 and 1997) but only if he can defeat American rival, Mark Brooks, and at the same time also overcome the inner demons that will be haunting him after he three-putted the last in an incredible finale reminiscent of Doug Sanders’ cataclysmic collapse at the Open at St Andrews in 1970.
Goosen And Garcia Still In The Hunt
Spain’s Sergio Garcia heads into the final round of this year’s US Open with a great chance to become the youngest man since Bobby Jones in 1923 to capture America’s oldest national title. But to do it Garcia, 21, will have to overcome a packed leaderboard that also features Retief Goosen, the popular South African golfer who is a regular on The European Tour and who has held at least a share of the lead since this Championship started.
Garcia Has US Open Title In His Sights
Spain’s Sergio Garcia heads into the third round of the 101st US Open just two shots off the lead and in excellent shape to mount a serious challenge to become the first European winner of this championship since England’s Tony Jacklin at Hazeltine in 1970.
Goosen Tied For The Lead In Tulsa
South Africa’s Retief Goosen, the surprise first round leader, will almost certainly hold a share of the lead heading into the third round of the US Open at Southern Hills GC in Tulsa, Oklahoma.
Goosen Leads The Way At US Open
South Africa’s Retief Goosen sits proudly at the top of the leaderboard at the end of weather interrupted first round of the US Open at Southern Hills GC in Tulsa, Oklahoma.
Goosen, 32, who was born in Pietersburg, South Africa but now lives for most of the year in London, goes into the second round a single shot ahead of veteran three-time US Open champion, Hale Irwin, and Canada’s Mike Weir after registering a magnificent four under par 66 in testing conditions that saw world’s No 1, Tiger Woods, slump to a disappointing four over par 74.
Goosen Shares The Lead At Southern Hills
South Africa’s Retief Goosen leads The European Tour challenge at the end of a weather disrupted first round at the 101st US Open at Southern Hills GC in Tulsa, Oklahoma. Goosen, who finished tied for fifth place at last week’s Compass Group English Open at the Marriott Forest of Arden, was three under par through his first seven holes and tied with clubhouse leader, Hale Irwin, when a violent thunder storm caused play to be abandoned for the day at 3.39 pm local time.
Record Number of European Tour Members ready to challenge for US Open
A record 26 European Tour Members will assemble at Southern Hills Country Club, Tulsa, Oklahoma, bidding to win the 101st US Open Championship and deny World Number One Tiger Woods of the opportunity to collect a Grand Slam of Majors in 2001.
