The 2015 U.S. Open Championship was the first to be contested in the Pacific Northwest region, and it would play out on a grand stage: Chambers Bay, an 8-year-old public golf course built from a reclaimed sand and gravel mine, and designed by Robert Trent Jones Jr. to challenge the best players in the world. This layout on Puget Sound in University Place, Wash., was the perfect setting for a new generation of golf talent to come to the fore, and stake their claim to greatness. This group of players had been inspired 15 years earlier by the record-setting triumph of Tiger Woods at Pebble Beach, a victory that galvanized a new era in the game: the rise of the golfer-athlete. From Rory McIlroy, to Jason Day, to Dustin Johnson, to Jordan Spieth, an inspired field of young stars was poised to contend for the U.S. Open Trophy. The 115th U.S. Open Championship did not disappoint, as four players were tied for the lead through 54 holes – the most since 1973 – and many of the leading young figures in the game contented deep into Sunday’s final round. The closing four holes would be looked upon as perhaps the most dramatic stretch in U.S. Open Championship history, defined by a mix of trial, triumph and stinging disappointment. By the time the roars had subsided, the player-caddie team of Spieth and Michael Greller had emerged victorious, making Spieth, at age 21, the youngest U.S. Open champion since Bob Jones in 1923.
