Round 4 Recap — Sunday

Jon Rahm wins 121st U.S. Open

Rahm ($11,200; 95 DKFP) came alive on Sunday at Torrey Pines, firing a four-under 67 to capture his first major victory at the 121st playing of the U.S. Open. He started the day with a couple birdies, and after giving a shot back on the fourth, he birdied the ninth to make the turn at -2. It was on the 17th hole where he finally moved into a tie for the lead with a lengthy birdie putt, and he poured in another on the par-five 18th to take the solo lead for good at -6. Rahm held off 38-year-old Louis Oosthuizen ($8,100; 89 DKFP), who entered Sunday with a share of the of the lead at -5 and appeared to have a shot before a costly bogey on 17 all but squashed his chances. He shot even par, finishing as a major runner-up yet again. — Kenny Ducey

Brooks Koepka, Bryson DeChambeau and Rory McIlroy falter on back nine Sunday at U.S. Open

Koepka ($10,100; 76.5 DKFP) entered the final round of the U.S. Open at even par. After the front nine, he was one-under, notching two birdies and a bogey. He wasn’t able to push through on the back nine, though, as he bogeyed three holes against two birdies, ending the tournament two-under and four strokes behind the 2021 U.S. Open champion, Jon Rahm ($11,200; 95 DKFP). Things weren’t so rosy for DeChambeau ($10,400; 67 DKFP) either. He entered Sunday three-under par and gained two strokes on the front nine. He then notched two bogeys and two double-bogeys to finish the tournament three-over. McIlroy ($9,900; 71.5 DKFP) entered the final round four-under par and finished one-under, he bogeying hole 11 and double-bogeying holes 12 and 16. — Stan Son


Round 3 Recap — Saturday

Mackenzie Hughes shoots up leaderboard into tie for lead at U.S. Open

It was a big moving day for Hughes ($6,700; 90 DKFP), who jumped six spots into a tie for the lead on Saturday at the U.S. Open. He shot a round of three-under, carding a couple of bogeys and a birdie on the front nine before going off on the back, sinking an eagle putt and adding two more birdies to his card. He’s joined atop the leaderboard by Louis Oosthuizen ($8,100; 85.5 DKFP), who managed to shoot a one-under 70 despite four bogeys, and Russell Henley ($7,000; 80 DKFP), who entered the third round in sole possession of the lead and shot even par on what was a tough day. The group holds a two-shot lead Bryson DeChambeau ($10,400; 71 DKFP) and Rory McIlroy ($9,900; 67 DKFP), who are tied for fourth. — Kenny Ducey

Familiar names make meteoric rise on Saturday at U.S. Open

The low rounds of the third round belonged to Rory McIlroy ($9,900; 67 DKFP) and Paul Casey ($7,900; 49.5 DKFP), who both shot a four-under 67 to jump into the top 15 entering Sunday at the U.S. Open. McIlroy began the day in 21st place, but currently sits in a tie for fourth, just two shots off the lead. He birdied five holes and bogeyed just once on a day where Torrey Pines gave just about everyone fits. Casey shot up a remarkable 44 spots into a tie for 14th place but is still right there in contention, now five shots off the lead at even par. Unlike McIlroy, Casey did bogey three holes on the day, but he more than made up for it with seven birdies. Dustin Johnson ($10,700; 49.5 DKFP) jumped 21 spots to T9 at -1 with a 68. — Kenny Ducey


Round 2 Recap — Friday

Viktor Hovland has withdrawn from the U.S. Open

Hovland ($9,200; 7.0 DKFP) withdrew from the U.S. Open on Friday after playing 10 holes. The reason given was that sand got into his eye. On Thursday, Hovland shot a three-over 74. On Friday, he bogeyed holes 12, 14, 15, and 16 on the back nine before double-bogeying the first hole on the front nine. Hovland was rostered on 16.91% of teams in the DraftKings Fantasy Golf Millionaire tournament. — Stan Son

Richard Bland, Russell Henley lead the U.S. Open after Round 2

There’s been plenty of carnage at Torrey Pines for the 2021 U.S. Open, but two golfers have been able to navigate the course and sit atop the throne together heading into the weekend. Bland ($6,6600; 68 DKFP) shot a one-under 70 on Thursday and then shot a 67 on Friday to head into the weekend at five-under. He had three birdies and a bogey on the front nine and four birdies and two bogeys on the back nine. DraftKings Sportsbook has Bland at +2500 to win it all. Henley ($7,000; 65 DKFP) was the mirror image of Bland as he shot a four-under on Thursday and one-under on Friday when he had two birdies and one bogey. DK Sportsbook has Henley at +1100 to win it all. — Stan Son


Round 1 Recap — Thursday

Russell Henley, Louis Oosthuizen lead at conclusion of play on Thursday at U.S. Open

Henley ($7,000; 52 DKFP) is your leader in the clubhouse following the conclusion of play on Thursday at the U.S. Open. The 32-year-old shot a four-under 71 with six birdies during the first round, but isn’t necessarily guaranteed a spot as the first round leader. Oosthuizen ($8,100; 52.5 DKFP) is also at -4 and will complete the final two holes when play resumes on Friday. In total, there are 36 golfers yet to finish their first rounds. As it stands, Francesco Molinari ($7,100; 37.5 DKFP) and Rafa Cabrera Bello ($6,700; 40 DKFP) sit in a tie for second, carding three-under rounds, while Brooks Koepka ($10,100; 31 DKFP), Jon Rahm ($11,200; 32.5 DKFP) and Hideki Matsuyama ($8,800; 29.5 DKFP) are part of a group lurking at -2. — Kenny Ducey

Xander Schauffele off to fast start at U.S. Open

Schauffele ($9,300; 31 DKFP) was the most owned player in the $2.5M Fantasy Golf Millionaire contest, and he certainly didn’t let those fantasy players down on Thursday. The X-Man fired a two-under round of 69, complete with four birdies and two bogeys. Though nothing’s settled yet with the first round suspended due to darkness, Schauffele is currently tied for fifth and just two shots in back of the lead. The other guy who commanded over 20% ownership, Tony Finau ($8,900; 7.5 DKFP), didn’t start too hot. Still in search of his second career TOUR victory, he scattered four bogeys before carding a birdie on 18. It gets worse for the public, though — Collin Morikawa ($9,500; 14 DKFP), the third-most popular golfer this week, is +4. — Kenny Ducey
