US Open 2006
Winged Foot, 15-18 June 2006

Greg Ogilvy
Greg Ogilvy won the US Open after a dramatic collapse by Mickelson
A dramatic collapse from Phil Mickelson on the 18th hands the US Open title to Australia's Geoff Ogilvy.

Chasing his third straight major, the American made a double-bogey six after missing the fairway and then hitting a tree.

Mickelson finished tied for second with Jim Furyk of the US and Scotland's Colin Montgomerie on six over.

Montgomerie also ruined his chances with a double-bogey at the last when he missed the green with an easy approach.
