Windham Clark credits coolness with ‘surreal’ US Open win

Windham Clark credited his composure in a turbulent fourth round for his maiden U.S. Open victory.

Wyndham Clark has moved up to No. 13 on the Official World Golf Rankings, just one point behind Brooks Koepka following his landmark victory at the US Open.

Clarke, who was ranked 241st in the world the day after the 2022 US Open, has won two in the last six weeks and earned more than $8 million.

Clarke held off Rory McIlroy at the Los Angeles Country Club. Clarke won by one stroke with a final total of 10-under 270. On the 72nd, Clarke unleashed a fountain of emotion during Sunday’s celebrations by hitting a lag putt from 60 feet to mark tap-in-par.

McIlroy falls short of his goal of ending a nine-year drought and is third in the latest rankings behind Scotty Schaeffler and Jon Rahm. Schaeffler has a total of 608.43 points, Spain’s Lahm with 473.78 points and Northern Ireland’s McIlroy with 425.27 points.

Patrick Cantlay is fourth, followed by Victor Hovland (Norway), Xander Schauffele and Australia’s Cameron Smith.

Hobland, 25, won the Memorial Tournament last week and finished second in the PGA Championship.

Rickie Fowler moved up 10 places to 35th with 86.88 points. He tied for fifth at the US Open and has three consecutive Top 10 finishes (Charles Schwab Challenge, Memorial).
