Dustin Johnson wins US Open

Lowry challenge fades with 76

Dustin Johnson claimed the US Open title as Shane Lowry's hopes faded on a day of high drama at Oakmont.

The Irishman led by four strokes heading into the final round in the weather-affected tournament, but a poor start to his final round saw his challenge stutter and he eventually finished in a three-way tie for second place with Americans Scott Piercey and Jim Furyk after carding a 76 for a one-under aggregate.

Sergio Garcia finished a shot further back alongside South Africa's Branden Grace after carding three birdies in succession from the 14th, but it was Johnson's day as he held his nerve to finish three shots clear after carding a 69.

However, there was confusion as the players headed down the back nine as players, officials and spectators were left unsure of the American's score after he was belatedly penalised a shot for allegedly causing his ball to move as he addressed it on the fifth green.

Johnson recorded birdies on the second and ninth holes to take control of the tournament after Lowry had bogeyed four of the opening ten holes.

That gave the 31-year-old a two-shot advantage but a birdie for Lowry on the 12th followed by a bogey for Johnson on 14 left them tied once again.

But Lowry then bogeyed the 14th himself before also dropping shots on 15 and 16 to end his challenge and hand victory to Johnson.
