Europeans have dominated the US Open

The U.S. Open at Pebble Beach had a surprise ending. The victory of Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson, the top-ranked golf players, was expected. However this was not the case. In the end, the British player Graemme McDowell won. He recorded 284 hits in total counting after four innings.By winning the U.S. Open, the 30 year-old Brit, became the first European to win the title last 40 years. It is the biggest victory of his career.

"It's wonderful, I cannot believe it” admitted McDowell, receiving the trophy for the winner. “Winning a tournament is always demanding and winning the U.S. Open on a course like Pebble Beach is extraordinarily difficult. "

The Europeans have made a good run in this tournament : The French player -Gregory Havret- reached the second place even though this was his first participation to this competition. The two men succeeded to handle the stress to share a competition with the golf superstar Tiger Woods.

The winners played a good hand because the U. S. Open, one of the most prestigious golf tournaments of the season, is one of four majors.

I like Tiger Woods, he is a great player but it’s refreshing to have unexpected winners. As the saying goes “nothing is impossible”.
