SPORTLIGHT

June 18

1972 Jack Nicklaus wins the U.S. Open by three strokes over Bruce Crampton and ties Bobby Jones record of 13 major titles.

1984 Fuzzy Zoeller shoots a 3-under 67 to beat Greg Norman by eight strokes in the 18-hole playoff for the U.S. Open title.

2000 Tiger Woods turns the 100th U.S. Open into a one-man show, winning by 15 strokes over Ernie Els and Miguel Angel Jimenez. Woods 15-stroke margin shatters the Open mark of 11 set by Willie Smith in 1899 and is the largest in any major championship surpassing the 13-stroke victory by Old Tom Morris in the 1862 British Open.
