The finish was exciting, as Spieth birdied the 18th hole to get to -5 for the tournament. Dustin Johnson put a five iron within 12 feet of the hole for a chance at eagle to beat Spieth by one. Johnson sent his eagle attempt past the hole and then missed a short birdie putt to give Spieth the victory.

According to oddsmakers, Spieth came into this week with 8/1 odds to win the U.S. Open, which means a wager of $100 on him to prevail will pay out an additional $800.

Spieth ended up with a 1-under 69 on Sunday to win the tournament while Johnson finished tied for second with Louis Oosthuizen. Johnson ended up with a 70 on Sunday while Oosthuizen shot a 3-under 67 in the final round. Adam Scott made a big climb on Sunday, as he shot a 6-under 64 to get to -3 for the tournament and end up tied for fourth.
