FARMINGDALE, N.Y. (AP) - Lucas Glover has won the U.S. Open at Bethpage Black.

Getting only the second victory of his PGA Tour career, Glover finished a final round of 3-over 73 Monday afternoon to win by two strokes over Phil Mickelson, David Duval and Ricky Barnes.

Glover took the outright lead with his lone birdie of the day at the par-4 16th and held on, taking home $1.35 million for the victory. He was 4 under for the championship.

Defending champion Tiger Woods finished even par and in a tie for sixth, four shots behind Glover.
