Matthew Wolff looks to join list of youngest winners in U.S. Open history

Matthew Wolff is looking to make some history this week at the 120th U.S. Open.

An event known for being one of the strongest tests in golf every year, the 21-year-old rising star on the PGA Tour finds himself in the lead at 5 under heading into Sunday’s final round at Winged Foot Golf Club in Mamaroneck, New York. Wolff shot a 5-under 65 during Saturday’s third round.

If he were to win, the former Oklahoma State star would join the likes of Jordan Spieth, Bobby Jones, Gene Sarazen and more in becoming the seventh youngest champion in the U.S. Open’s storied history.

According to the PGA Tour, the last player to win the U.S. Open in his tournament debut was Francis Ouimet in 1913.
