Former Oregon standout Wyndham Clark won the 2023 U.S. Open on Sunday, completing a magical run to become the first Duck to win a PGA Major.

Clark, the 2017 Pac-12 Men's Golfer of the Year, shot 10-under par at Los Angeles Country Club, holding off stars like Rory McIlroy, Scottie Scheffler and Rickie Fowler to secure the second PGA Tour win of his career.

His victory continues a dominant run for the Pac-12, which has now accounted for seven of the last 18 men's major championships and 47 all-time.

Arizona State's Jon Rahm won the 2023 Masters in April and the 2021 U.S. Open. That year, ASU's Phil Mickelson won the 2021 PGA Championship while California's Collin Morikawa won the 2021 Open Championship. Morikawa also won the 2020 PGA Championship.

Stanford's Tiger Woods won the 2019 Masters, the 15th major victory of his career, second all-time behind Jack Nicklaus' 18.

Clark's title was the most improbable of them all as he had not finished higher than 75th in a major championship prior to winning the 2023 U.S. Open.
