The 2024 U.S. Open has been one of the toughest tournaments of the year so far, and arguably one of the best major weekends in quite a while. The Pinehurst Course #2 was not an easy one too navigate, with only eight golfers managing to stay under par after four rounds.

The weekend also witnessed some disastrous shots. Even the world's best golfers have made mistakes this weekend, with triple bogeys, unlucky lip outs, and golf balls that ended up in the bushes. Here, we look at the five most disastrous shots that took place at the U.S. Open:


5 disastrous shots at the 2024 US Open

Ludvig Aberg

Ludvig Aberg's unfortunate triple bogey came during the third round of the U.S. Open, almost putting him out of contention for the win going into the final day. He missed the fairway on the 13th hole of the Pinehurst course, after which he proceeded to miss the hole again and again.

Aberg landed himself with a triple bogey, leaving him two strokes behind Bryson DeChambeau.

Aberg did, however, end up finishing T12 at the end of the U.S. Open.


Tony Finau

The disaster did not stop at Ludvig Aberg, as Tony Finau later went on to make the same mistake on the 13th hole. Finau attempted to move his shot up the slope on the par 4 hole, but ended up putting it into the bunker instead.

After getting the ball out of the bunker and into the hole, Finau was left with a triple bogey on his hands.


Scottie Scheffler

Many golfers struggled on the par-5 5th hole, including Scottie Scheffler.During the second round, Rory McIlroy, Xander Schauffele, and Scheffler saw disaster on the fifth hole. While McIlroy got away with a bogey, Scheffler and Schauffele did not have the same luck.

Scheffler ended the hole with a double bogey, adding on to his already disastrous campaign during the weekend.


Bryson DeChambeau

Bryson DeChambeau won the 2024 US Open, but his double bogey on day 3 was a disappointing one. DeChambeau's drive saw his ball hit the green near the hole before gradually rolling off into the rough.

Taking a shot from the rough was bad enough, but it became a nightmare as the ball rolled back to its origin point. After getting the ball securely on the green, DeChambeau went on to miss the putt. He eventually carded a double bogey on the 16th hole (13:48–15:10).


Rory McIlroy

Rory McIlroy's missed putt on the final hole during the final round of the event was possibly the most disastrous shot of the weekend. McIlroy lost his chance to win his fifth major title after missing his four-foot putt.

The missed opportunity meant that he could not keep DeChambeau at bay, as the LIV golfer claimed his second US Open victory.
