Americans Margaret ives Abbott and Charles Edward Sands were the first Olympic champions in the two events. in 1904 in St Louis, the women’s event was replaced by a team event.

He recorded another top-10 finish in the FedEx St. Jude Classic a week later. Johnson won the 2016 U.S. Open to claim his first major title on June 19, 2016 in his 29th major appearance.

As he prepared to address the ball for a par putt, his ball moved slightly. Johnson stepped away saying that he had not addressed the ball. After he spoke to an on-site rules official he was told to carry on with his shot which he successfully putted. He ended up winning by three strokes ahead of Shane Lowry, Scott Piercy and Jim Furyk.
