2009 US Open Golf Standings October 09 2013
Lucas Glover Takes Home the Hardware
This year's 2009 US Open didn't finish with an exciting playoff between the best in golf. In fact, play at Bethpage didn't even finish on the scheduled Sunday due to soggy early round Open conditions on Thursday and Friday.
In the end, Lucas Glover took home the trophy. His win marks the first time since 2005 that a qualifier of the Open has won the event. Many fans were rooting for Phil Mickelson, whose late charge on Monday had people thinking the lefty would be heading home with the win. Tiger Woods - another favorite to win this year's tournament - had a disappointing Monday as well. He finished the 2009 US Open at Even par.
Popular opinion believed early on that Ricky Barnes would take the 2009 US Open. This was after he posted some stellar scores in the first and second round of tournament play. He held the lead for most of the weekend, until he fell apart in the final rounds of play at Bethpage Black.
