The first PGA Tour win of North's career came at the 1977 American Express Westchester Classic. He was twenty-eight years old when he won the 1978 U.S. Open at Cherry Hills Country Club in Cherry Hills Village, Colorado. He moved into the lead after the second round, and was three shots ahead going into Sunday, but an erratic final round left him needing to make a five on the last hole to take the championship.
