The U.S. Open Golf Championship was decided yesterday and naturally it wasn't a U.S. citizen that won the tournament.  South African born Justin Rose was the winner yesterday at Merion Golf Course just outside of Philadelphia. American Phil Mickelson the sentimental favorite of the American crowd finished second.

Perhaps the shot of the tournament was a history making effort made by Shawn Stefani on the par 3 17th hole. No golfer had ever scored a hole in one at the Merion course during a U.S. Open until this incredible swing of the golf club. I must admit there was a bit of a lucky bounce involved too but why be good when you can be lucky right?
