U.S. Open final round live updates, leaderboard: Bryson DeChambeau fends off Rory McIlroy to win second major (1)

Bryson DeChambeau nearly saw his three-shot lead slip away on Sunday afternoon.

But, thanks to a huge bunker shot at the 18th and a late collapse from Rory McIlroy, he's walking away with a second U.S. Open title.

DeChambeau held on down the stretch and won the third major championship of the year by a single stroke on Sunday at Pinehurst No. 2 in North Carolina. It marked the second U.S. Open title of DeChambeau's career.

DeChambeau, after a dominant outing on Saturday, entered the final round at Pinehurst No. 2 in North Carolina with a three-shot lead over the field. He carded a 3-under 67 on Saturday, and nearly matched the low round of the day, to nearly run away with the U.S. Open.

Quickly, though, McIlroy caught up to him.

McIlroy was right with DeChambaeu throughout their back nine, thanks to a huge flurry of birdies early on. Yet McIlroy fell apart down the stretch. He made three bogeys in his final four holes, and missed two putts inside four feet for the first time all season in brutal fashion.

A bogey on 18 puts McIlroy one stroke behind DeChambeau.

DeChambeau, on the other hand, went up-and-down perfectly from the bunker to claim the win.

    Bryson from the bunker!

    Bryson DeChambeau just pulled off a ridiculous bunker shot at No. 18. He's looking at a 4-footer for the win now.

    DeChambeau punches into the bunker

    Well, this is still interesting. DeChambeau just punched out into the bunker. He'll need to go up-and-down from there to win the U.S. Open.

    Rory misses, again

    Oh man. Rory just missed another very short par putt at 18. Awful.

    He's dropped back to 5-under now.

    😱 😱 😱 😱

    If Bryson can just par No. 18, he'll win the U.S. Open. Bryson, however, is here...

    Both Bryson and Rory drive way left at 18

    Neither Bryson nor Rory hit a good drive at 18, so it may end up being a wash. Rory will have a look for par here while Bryson walks up to his ball way left of the fairway.

    A good birdie look for Bryson

    Bryson DeChambeau gave himself a shot at No. 17, but he left his birdie putt just short. So, we'll head to the final hole locked in at 6-under.

    Rory McIlroy will head to the 18th at 6-under after a clutch up-and-down par save from the bunker at No. 17. DeChambeau is still right with him.

    Just in case, the U.S. Open now uses a two-hole aggregate playoff format.

    It's been 16 years since the last U.S. Open playoff - Tiger beating Rocco at Torrey Pines. That's the longest span without a playoff in U.S. Open history.

    Now Rory blinks

    Well, Rory just returned the favor.

    McIlroy just missed a shorter par putt than DeChambeau did. That bogey at No. 16 has them tied at 6-under once again. Brutal.

    RORY ALSO THREE-PUTTS 😮

    Bryson's brutal three putt

    That was the worst possible time for Bryson's first three-putt of the week. Yikes.

    He just missed a very short par putt at the 15th, and dropped back to 6-under. Rory McIlroy is leading by a shot once again.

    Bryson's first three-putt of the championship comes at the WORST time. 😫

    McIlroy drops back to 7-under

    We've got a tie at the top yet again. After sending his drive behind the green, McIlroy just had to settle for a bogey at No. 15. He's now tied with DeChambeau at 7-under.

    Rory saves par again ... for now

    Rory McIlroy just saved par again at the 14th to keep his lead, but that may be short-lived. He just sent his tee shot at the par-3 15th well past the green into the rough.

    An eagle look for DeChambeau

    Bryson just drove the green at the short par-4 13th to set up an eagle look. Though he missed that putt, DeChambeau walked off the green with a tap-in birdie to cut McIlroy's lead back to one.

    He's not out of this yet.

    You didn't think he was going to lay up, did you? 😂

    Rory takes solo lead by two

    With a birdie at No. 13, thanks to a bank shot off the grandstands with his drive, Rory McIlroy is the new solo leader at the U.S. Open. And with a Bryson DeChambeau bogey behind him, McIlroy's lead is suddenly two.

    McIlroy catches DeChambeau again

    Rory McIlroy's putter is on fire. He just sank a 20-footer to card his third birdie in his last four holes. That has him back at 7-under and in a share of the lead with DeChambeau.

    Another par save for DeChambeau

    Bryson keeps scrambling perfectly. After missing the fairway and landing in a bunker, DeChambeau just saved par at No. 11 to stay at 7-under.
