Gary Woodland reacted after making a birdie on the fifth hole during the second round of the U.S. Open on his way to a 6-under-par 65. STAR TRIBUNE

PEBBLE BEACH, Calif. (AP) — Very soon, Gary Woodland will be a father of three, and odds are he’ll answer the same way about the kids as he will about the three shots that cemented him in as a U.S. Open champion.

Which is his favorite? They’re all perfect in their own, special way.

Woodland’s Father’s Day at Pebble Beach included a flushed 3-wood that set up birdie to give him a two-shot cushion, a wedge clipped off the 17th green that helped him preserve it, then a 30-foot birdie putt on No. 18 that ended the tournament with a flourish — and put him in the record book, to boot.
