Former University of Kansas golf standout Gary Woodland fired his second 3-over-par 74 of the tournament on Sunday but still managed a top-50 finish at the 2021 U.S. Open.

Woodland, who won the U.S. Open in 2019 at famed Pebble Beach, shot rounds of 74-71-73-74 this week to finish at +8 for the tournament.

John Rahm, meanwhile, won his first career major by shooting 6-under over four rounds at Torrey Pines Golf Course in San Diego, including a 67 on Sunday.

Despite playing fairly consistent golf all week long, Woodland never made his way into contention at this year's event. The Topeka native and former KU All-American finished the week with 16 bogeys, 10 birdies, one double bogey and pars on the rest.

Tying for 50th place with four other golfers netted Woodland a prize of $29,664.

Next up on the PGA Tour is The Travelers next week.
