SPORTLIGHT

June 18

1910–Alex Smith wins the U.S. Open by beating John McDermont and Macdonald Smith in an 18-hole playoff. Smith beats McDermont by four strokes and Macdonald Smith by six.

1941–Joe Louis knocks out Billy Conn in the 13th round at the Polo Grounds in New York to retain the world heavyweight title.

1960–Arnold Palmer beats amateur Jack Nicklaus by two strokes to win the U.S. Open.

1967–Jack Nicklaus shoots a record 275 to beat Arnold Palmer for the U.S. Open. Nicklaus breaks Ben Hogan's 1948 record by one stroke.

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.

1986–California's Don Sutton becomes the 19th pitcher in baseball history to win 300 games as he pitches a three-hitter to give the Angels a 5-1 triumph over the Texas Rangers.

1990–Hale Irwin makes an 8-foot birdie putt on the 91st hole to beat Mike Donald in the first sudden-death playoff to decide the U.S. Open. It is the third U.S. Open title for the 45-year-old Irwin, the oldest winner in the tournament's history.

1995–Michael Johnson becomes the first national champion at 200 and 400 meters since 1899 as he captures both races at the USA-Mobil Championships.

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.

2006–Phil Mickelson's bid for a third consecutive major ends with a shocking collapse when he bungles his way to a double bogey on the final hole, giving the U.S. Open to Geoff Ogilvy.

2011–Rory McIlroy moves closer to his first major at Congressional by stretching his lead for the third straight day with a 3-under 68 to set the 54-hole record at the U.S. Open–a mind-boggling 14-under 199. McIlroy takes an eight-shot lead going into the final round.
