Michael Campbell won his only major title, two strokes ahead of runner-up Tiger Woods; third-round leader and two-time U.S. Open champion Retief Goosen collapsed on the final day.[2][3] It was the second of three U.S. Opens at the course, which first hosted in 1999, when Payne Stewart won his second U.S. Open four months before his death in an aviation accident. Six years was the shortest gap between U.S. Opens at the same site since 1946. The total purse was $6.25 million with a winner's share of $1.17 million.[4]

History of U.S. Open at Pinehurst No. 2Edit

It was only the second U.S. Open at Pinehurst, because of past concerns of high temperatures and its distance from a major populated area. At the first in 1999, Payne Stewart won his second U.S. Open (and third major) in one of the most remarkable U.S. Open victories ever. He trailed playing partner Phil Mickelson by one stroke as they played the 16th hole, where he made an amazing 25-foot (8 m) putt for par while Mickelson missed his from 7 feet (2 m). Stewart birdied 17 to take the lead and holed a 15-foot (5 m) par putt on 18 in one of the most dramatic finishes ever. After helping the U.S. regain the Ryder Cup in late September, he died in a plane crash a month later at age 42. Stewart was honored at the 2005 edition with a silhouette of his 1999 victory pose on the flag of the 18th green, also captured in a bronze statue overlooking the 18th green.[5]

Following a restoration by Bill Coore and Ben Crenshaw,[6][7] the U.S. Open returned for a third time in 2014.

Second roundEdit

Friday, June 17, 2005

Two-time champion Retief Goosen shared the lead in the U.S. Open second round after most of the field struggled on Friday.[12] Trailing by one at the start of the day, he carded an even-par 70 for 138, level with overnight leader Olin Browne and unheralded Jason Gore. Gore, who missed the cut in his only previous U.S. Open appearance in 1998, vaulted up the leaderboard late in the day with a five-birdie 67. South Korea's K. J. Choi (70) and Australian Mark Hensby (68) were tied for fourth at one under. World number two Vijay Singh was a further shot back in a four-way share of sixth after a second successive 70, alongside Spaniard Sergio García and New Zealand's Michael Campbell, who fired matching 69s, and England's Lee Westwood, after a 72. Of the other big names, Tiger Woods was one over after a 71, while Phil Mickelson (77) and Ernie Els (76) just made the halfway cut which fell at eight-over 148. Nine players finished under par after the opening round but only five were still in red figures after day two.

Third roundEdit

Saturday, June 18, 2005

Retief Goosen took a three-shot lead after the U.S. Open third round on Saturday.[13] The world number five recovered from a double-bogey six at the 13th with three birdies in the last five holes for 69 and 267 (–3), the only one to end the day in red figures. Tied for second at even-par 210 were Goosen's playing partner Olin Browne and Jason Gore, both carding 72s. Michael Campbell, another qualifier, registered a 71 to share fourth place at one-over 211 with Mark Hensby (72). David Toms, the 2001 PGA champion, was a further shot back after a 70 while Tiger Woods recorded a 72 to finish in a four-way tie for seventh at three over.

Final roundEdit

Sunday, June 19, 2005

Michael Campbell held off a charging Tiger Woods to clinch his only major title by two shots on Sunday. The 36-year-old Campbell, four off the pace overnight, collected four birdies and three bogeys to close with a one-under-par 69, the best of the day. Woods, who had been chasing his 10th career major, rallied from a bogey-bogey start and reeled off four birdies in the last nine holes to secure second place with a matching 69. He missed an eight-footer (2.5 m) for par on 16 and three-putted for bogey on 17. Sergio García and South Africa's Tim Clark both carded 70 to tie for third at five over, level with Mark Hensby who registered a 74. Retief Goosen, three strokes clear overnight, threw away his chance of a third U.S. Open title by dropping six shots in the first nine holes. Five more bogeys after the turn led to a dismal 81 (+11) and a share of 11th place at eight-over 288. Jason Gore ballooned to a 14-over 84 to tie for 49th while Olin Browne returned an 80 for a share of 23rd. David Toms shot a 77 to finish tied for 15th. Ernie Els fired his lowest score of the week, a level-par 70 earning him a share of 15th at nine-over 289 while Phil Mickelson returned a 74 to finish at 12 over in a tie for 33rd.
