UNIVERSITY PLACE, Wash. — Chambers Bay Golf Course had already served as the backdrop for one big event in the life of the 21-year-old Jordan Spieth. A month after Spieth won his first pro event as a PGA Tour rookie, he was a witness at a wedding on the grounds between his caddie, Michael Greller, and the former Ellie Morris.

Two years later, it was Spieth’s turn to have a monumental moment all his own. With a one-stroke victory over Dustin Johnson and Louis Oosthuizen on Sunday in the 115th United States Open, Spieth became the first male player since Gene Sarazen in 1922 to win multiple majors before his 22nd birthday. He also became the youngest winner of the national championship since Bob Jones in 1923. Spieth, the reigning Masters champion, is the sixth man to win the first two legs of the Grand Slam, and the first since Tiger Woods in 2002.
