This was Nicklaus' second US Open win and seventh major as he set a new tournament scoring record of 275. He ended with a 65 to beat Arnold Palmer, the only other man under par, by four strokes. He birdied five of his first eight holes and holed a 20 footer on the last (pictured above).

1954 US Open - Ed Furgol 284 (+4)

Furgol won his only major title in a groundbreaking US Open. It was the first to be televised and also the first to included ropes for spectators. Furgol parred the last, by getting up and down for par from the other course's (Upper Course) 18th fairway, to win by one.

Other wins:

1936 US Open (Upper Course) - Tony Manero 282 (-6)

The relatively unknown Manero beat England's Harry Cooper by two shots to win his only major. His final round 67 (-5) was enough to get past Cooper who was the leader after 54 holes.

1915 US Open (Old Course, now no longer exists) - Jerome Travers (a) 297 (+1)

1903 US Open (Old Course, now no longer exists) - Willie Anderson 307 (+7)
