Justin Rose won the 113th US Open by two shots from Phil Mickelson and Jason Day, with Jason Dufner, Ernie Els, Billy Horschel and Hunter Mahan tied for fourth two further back. Rose's first major Championship also marks the first English victory in the US Open since Tony Jacklin triumphed at Hazeltine in 1970 and the first major for an Englishman since Nick Faldo at the 1996 Masters. For Mickelson it was a sixth runner-up finish at the US Open and for Jason Day the third runner-up spot in the 11 majors he has contested.
The win moves Rose up two places to World No. 3, equalling his career-high ranking achieved briefly in March after the Arnold Palmer Invitational. Mickelson climbs four places to 6th and Day climbs ten places to 16th. Luke Donald, who tied for 8th at Merion, drops one place to 7th. Tiger Woods and Rory McIlroy, who finished tied for 32nd and tied for 41st respectively after lacklustre weeks, remain in the top two spots.
