1973: Johnny Miller Shoots Final-Round 63 To Win U.S. Open At Oakmont

Trailing by six shots through 54 holes, Johnny Miller delivered one of the greatest rounds in U.S. Open history, closing with a near-flawless 63 to vault over a dozen men to claim the 1973 title at Oakmont. Beginning his round more than an hour before the leaders, Miller charged out of the gate, birdieing the first four holes to get in contention. After a 32 on his first nine holes, Miller birdied the 11th, 12th, 13th and 15th holes on the inward nine to finish at five under for the championship, one ahead of John Schlee.
