Zimbabwe’s Brendon De Jonge finished out of the top 10 at the US Open after ending on tied 28th on the last day of play.

The Zimbabwean had started off well with a second place finish on the opening day of play before slipping to 10th on the second day and 21st on the third day before moving to 28th overally.

After starting off with an impressive two under par 68, De Jonge disappointed on the last day after hitting 79 which saw him end up with a total score of 287 tied with former world number one Phil Mickelson, Graeme McDowell, Daniel Berger, Kenny Perry, Chris Kirk, and Victor Dubuisson.

In four days, De Jonge hit 68, 70, 73, and 76. Germany’s Martin Keymar won US Open and becomes the first player in tournament’s history to lead from the first day until the last day of competition. This was Keymar’s first US Open title and his second major championship in his career.

Keymar finished on nine undar-par 271 to win the title by eight strokes over Eric Compton and place Rick Fowler who could manage a total score of 279 on the last day of the four day US Open. Keymar opened up with a superb 65, before following up with another 65, 72, and 69.

Defending champion Justine Rose was tied for 12th place with a total score of 283. Focus now shifts to the Travellers Championship which runs from Thursday this week.

    Cant the idiots at the Zimbabwean spell the names of the players correctly. To claim that Zimbabwe has one of the highest literacy rates in Africa is a sick joke.

    If one notices it is always people at international level and they hail from Mashonaland do you think that region that Bob is always trying to deprive for reasons unbeknown to him does not have talented people from the minority groups?
