Five things we learned from the U.S. Open

Say what you want about the course at Chambers Bay and the Fox TV telecast all weekend, but Sunday night was sports drama at its best. And it saved the United States Golf Association from a lot of grief.

You never want to see anyone lose a U.S. Open, but that's exactly what happened to Dustin Johnson. Jordan Spieth ended up the winner, despite a double bogey at 17 that opened the door for Johnson, who three-putted the 18th hole. If he had only hit his putts as crisply as he hit the first two shots on the finishing hole.

So a Grand Slam is still in play for Spieth. Next up is the British Open, July 16-19, at St. Andrews.
