Gary Woodland held off a late charge from Brooks Koepka to win the US Open and claim his first major title at Pebble Beach.

American Woodland, who started the day 11 under, shot a final round of 69 to finish 13 under par across the weekend.

The 35-year-old had led the group since the end of day two and managed to hold on until the very end.

He finished three shots clear of compatriot Koepka, who was hoping to win the tournament for the second consecutive year after a final-round 68 put him at 10 under.

Justin Rose started the day one shot behind the world number 25 but finished in tied in third alongside Jon Rahm, Xander Schauffele and Chez Reavie on seven under.

The Englishman was looking to win his second major after winning the tournament in 2013 and took a share of the lead with an early birdie on Sunday.

However, he wasn't able to keep it up and hit five bogeys to finish the round three over par as Woodland took the title.
