The 2016 United States Open Championship was the 116th U.S. Open, held June 16–19 at Oakmont Country Club in Plum, Pennsylvania, a suburb northeast of Pittsburgh. Dustin Johnson won his first major championship.
Play was delayed on the first day due to heavy rainfall, forcing most of the field to play half a round behind schedule. Andrew Landry was a surprise leader after the first round before Johnson led the field in the second. Shane Lowry carded a 65 in the third round to take the overall lead into the final round. Despite a controversial penalty on the 5th green, Johnson took the title three strokes ahead of runners-up Lowry, Jim Furyk and Scott Piercy.
