The 2009 United States Open Championship was the 109th U.S. Open, held June 18–22 on the Black Course of Bethpage State Park on Long Island, in Farmingdale, New York. Lucas Glover won his only major title, two strokes ahead of runners-up Ricky Barnes, David Duval, and Phil Mickelson.[3]

This was the second U.S. Open at Bethpage Black; the first in 2002 was won by Tiger Woods, also the defending champion. The 2009 edition was hit heavily by continuous rain throughout the tournament, and resulted in multiple suspensions of play. Mickelson announced that this would be his last tournament for a while, before he took time off to tend to his ailing wife, Amy, who had been recently diagnosed with breast cancer.

First round[edit]

Thursday, June 18, 2009
Friday, June 19, 2009

Play began in the rain on Thursday morning, until play was suspended at 10:15 am, as several of the greens became unplayable with excessive water. Play was not restarted on Thursday, with the majority of players yet to tee off. Jeff Brehaut, through 10 holes, was one of four leading at 1-under par heading into Friday. Play was restarted on Friday morning and Mike Weir shot 64 (–6) to lead by two strokes at the end of the first round.[13][14] Woods shot 74 (+4) with two double bogeys and three bogeys.[15]

Second round[edit]

Friday, June 19, 2009
Saturday, June 20, 2009

The round began at 5:00 pm on Friday afternoon and finished on Saturday afternoon. Because of the soft conditions caused by the heavy rain, many low scores were made during the second round. Ricky Barnes shot 65, and had a 36-hole record of 8-under par 132.[16] Lucas Glover and Azuma Yano were also amongst the ones that shot very low scores. Woods shot 69 for 143 (+3),[17] and Mickelson shot even par 70 to remain 1 under par at 139. The cut was at 144 (+4), the lowest at the U.S. Open since 2003, and was missed by major champions David Toms and Justin Leonard.[18]

Final round[edit]

Sunday, June 21, 2009
Monday, June 22, 2009

The final round began Sunday evening until play was suspended due to darkness, with leaders Barnes and Glover on the second hole. Play resumed Monday morning. Barnes, who had held the lead through the second and third rounds, faltered on the front nine on Monday morning, and bogeyed five of the first nine holes. He shot one over par on the back nine, but was never able to catch up with Glover, his playing partner for the final two rounds. Duval had a triple-bogey at the par-3 3rd, but rallied on the back nine with three straight birdies before bogeying 17 and missing a birdie putt at 18 to finish at 2 under par. Woods made a charge on the back nine with birdies on 13 and 14, but then bogeyed 15 and parred the rest to finish even par.[20] Mickelson tied Glover for the lead after making an eagle at 13 after hitting a perfect second shot on the par 5, but proceeded to miss a short birdie putt on 14, three-putt for bogey on 15, miss another putt on 16, and made another bogey on 17 on his way to finishing two strokes behind Glover and tied for second place with Barnes and Duval. It was Mickelson's fifth runner-up finish at the U.S. Open, breaking the record of four by Sam Snead, Bobby Jones, Arnold Palmer, and Jack Nicklaus.[21][22] (His sixth came four years later in 2013 at Merion.) Glover birdied 16 and parred the final two holes to seal the victory.[23]
