American Gary Woodland has won his maiden major title with a three-shot victory at the US Open at Pebble Beach.

Woodland held off a late challenge from two-time defending champion Brooks Koepka to finish the tournament at 13 under.

The 35-year-old shot a two under 69 in his final round, finishing the tournament with a 30 foot birdie putt on the par 5 18th.

Koepka, who started the day in a tie for third at seven under, carded a three under 68 in the final round to finish solo second.

Justin Rose began the day one shot back of Woodland but the Englishman crumbled on the back nine with three bogeys for a three-over 74 and a tie for third at seven-under with Xander Schauffele, Chez Reavie and Spain’s Jon Rahm.
