History of U.S. Open at Pebble Beach This week marks the sixth U.S. Open to be hosted by Pebble Beach Golf Links.

The course has hosted some of the most dramatic finishes and historic victories since 1972.

1972 U.S. Open Jack Nicklaus won the first U.S. Open at Pebble Beach for his third U.S. Open victory.

Nicklaus sealed the win with a birdie on the par-3 17th hole, after his one-iron hit the pin.

1982 U.S. Open Tom Watson defeated Jack Nicklaus by two strokes for his first and only U.S. Open.

Watson made a chip-in birdie from roughly 15 feet on the par-3 17th hole to seal the win.

1992 U.S. Open Tom Kite, who was widely recognized as the best player without a major, won his first U.S. Open.

2000 U.S. Open Tiger Woods announced his presence as the greatest golfer in the world.

Woods won by a record 15 strokes over Ernie Els and Miguel Angel Jimenez.

2010 U.S. Open Graeme McDowell won his first major title by one stroke over Gregory Havret.

Ernie Els finished third, followed by Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson.
