Brooks Koepka runs away with US Open

Hideki Matsuyama, of Japan, shakes hands with his caddie after his fourth round of the U.S. Open golf tournament Sunday, June 18, 2017, at Erin Hills in Erin, Wis.

There was one last ovation as he walked off the 18th green after putting for par in the first Open to be held in Wisconsin.

"It was really cool".

"On 10 I just hit a poor putt, not enough speed, and 11 the same thing", he said, underlining the importance the putt on 13. Today I didn't play how I wanted to but it was a great week. "He went and won the golf tournament on the back nine", Harman said about Koepka, who clinched his victory with a run of three birdies in a row from the 14th.

Koepka then frittered a golden chance to regain the lead on the 11th, but was unable to convert a nervy nine-foot putt for birdie. Stricker tapped in for par.

"Yeah, that would have been nice to get".

He's not slowing down either. "I'll go anywhere. I think it helped me grow up a little bit and really figure out that, hey, play golf, get it done, and then you can really take this somewhere. I don't know, but in my opinion, I would like to see another one here down the road, sure". In this Open, for instance, the World's top three-ranked players - Dustin Johnson, Jason Day and Rory McIlroy - went on a picnic in the Erin Hills overgrowth and went missing on the weekend.

Heatwave set to continue after hottest day of year
Public Health England's Heatwave Plan for England said: "Excessive exposure to high temperatures can kill". This minimum alert simply means that people should be aware of what to do if the alert level is raised.

HARMAN: No, I don't think there's - I think most of the good players don't really compare themselves to their peers.

"You've got to put four good rounds together", Matsuyama said through an interpreter.

The 24-year-old carved a 3-wood from the fairway to within 8 feet of the cup on the 667-yard finishing par-5 and drained the putt for a 9-under-par 63, the best US Open round ever in relation to par. The venue, Erin Hills, a resort course in the heart of the American dairyland, is a par-72.

It was an odd U.S. Open in this sense. At this year's Masters, he entered the final round trailing by one but shot a 76 and was far from the drama between Garcia and Justin Rose.

Q. Tommy Fleetwood was just saying that he'll draw upon this next time he steps up to the tee in a major championship. The conditions were so tough. He shot a 74 to finish at 7 over at Erin Hills, well off the lead. Three wins on the second-tier Challenge Tour over two months in 2013, earned him the right to jump to the European Tour.

That doesn't sound like the U.S. Open. He also won the Open in 1994, as well as the British Open in 2002 and 2012.

That victory five years ago at Royal Latham was his last tour win.

UK PM Theresa May will face leadership challenge if she softens Brexit
However, it seems unlikely he will be able to resist public comment on the Brexit process, which he has described as a "tragedy". The Taoiseach said he would be emphasising this to the Prime Minister.

"I know I didn't play well, but it was a beatdown I needed so that I learn how to play the game differently and learn what I need to do to become better".

"Maybe something happens in the next couple of months, win something to get into it for next year", Els added.

"Even though the scores were somewhat lower than a normal U.S. Open", he said, "to finish in double digits under par at a major championship, especially the Open, it was a good week". A young fan at Erin Hills asked Xander Schauffele late Saturday if he was a golfer.

One man who managed to keep his score down was Brooks Koepka, and it won him the U.S. Open. Mullinax qualified out of the Memphis, Tennessee, sectional.

Four U.S. Olympians were competing in the tournament, and among them, Rickie Fowler had the highest finish.

"Obviously, that's just one shot, but that was a pretty big turn", Thomas said of the bogey on No. 4. He parred each of the final holes to lock up the title.

His confidence in the final round came, in part, from a short conversation the night before with Dustin Johnson, a friend who had been through his share of close calls and heartbreaks before finally becoming a major champion at the U.S. Open past year.
