Koepka cruises to win US Open, first major

Tommy Fleetwood

Tommy Fleetwood

But about an hour after his final putt, as the size of his accomplishment sank in and everything it meant began to dig into Koepka, he conducted a remarkable long mass interview in which he opened up so much, was so frank and interesting, that the Man of No Emotion who won the U.S. Open was replaced by a vastly more interesting person - that is to say, the real Koepka.

Tommy Fleetwood proved to himself he can contend for major titles after finishing fourth behind American Brooks Koepka in the US Open at Erin Hills.

Tom Kite looks back on windy final round in 1992 at Pebble Beach. Johnson was scheduled to join Koepka in playing a Wednesday practice round with Scheffler before this year's U.S. Open, but after his wife, Paulina, had a baby on Monday, Johnson got to Erin Hills late and his practice schedule changed.

But Koepka would not be blown off course producing a near-flawless final round, subduing the winds with a mix of power and precision.

She has since promised to set up a public inquiry and pledged £5 million (S$8.83 million) of support and housing guarantees. Women comfort each other near the Grenfell apartment tower block in North Kensington.

It rewarded good shots and penalized bad shots.

Brian Harman and Justin Thomas were the last players to tee off at Erin Hills.

Koepka settled for a tap-in par, but that didn't matter. Knowing for sure he would walk away the champion. "Just keep doing what you're doing, you're going to win the thing".

As recently as 2014, Koepka said he called his manager before the final day of a European event (which he ended up winning) and said, "I don't want to play".

London police said in a statement that one death has been confirmed and eight people were injured and taken to nearby hospitals. It was later updated again to include new information from the London Ambulance Service and the Metropolitan Police .

After two years of U.S. Open calamity, the USGA enjoyed a controversy-free week. "So all around my game is pretty solid and I couldn't be happier". Play the same, too.

Bogey - Patrick Reed: Captain America was rocking his Ryder Cup trousers again (Dig his style, why let perfectly good trousers go to waste?), but they didn't provide the same mojo they did during a Saturday 65. "I know I'm going to be nervous, I just need to harness that as best I can". "And it's no surprise". He carded three straight birdies on Nos. And to the surprise of many players, the USGA didn't overreact to low scores with unreasonable hole lengths and pin placements in the later rounds. Hideki started the tournament a full nine shots behind the lead after his 74 on Thursday but proceeded to put together two stellar rounds over the next three days with his 65 on Friday and 66 on Sunday in order to push Koepka for the title. "For us, it was like two minutes". It doesn't really surprise me. I felt [Saturday] I played great. Better than Brian Harman, Rickie Fowler, Justin Thomas and the rest of the congested leaderboard. On Saturday, he followed five birdies on the first nine with three bogeys on the back and on Sunday there was a triple bogey No. 8 sent him free-falling down the leaderboard.

The fast-moving Koepka captured the 2015 Waste Management Phoenix Open but despite often putting himself in contention, the wins did not continue to flow and from 21 top-10 finishes on the USA -based tour, he only had the one victory. Even the wind, which finally blew on Sunday, couldn't put a complete halt to an assault on par never before seen in a U.S. Open. He's in the British Open field and felt he'd also qualify for this season's PGA Championship. But the fairways were generous and the wind that serves as the course's best defense didn't kick up until the end. Without a card on any tour when he got out of Florida State, Koepka filled his passport on the Challenge Tour with stamps from Kazakhstan to Kenya, Scotland and Spain, India and the Madeira Island.

Asked about avoiding sectional qualifying next year, Schauffele said, "That's another thing I didn't know". "Golf is a amusing game where anything can happen and I just plan on staying in the moment, and if I do that I think anything can happen". Prior to Sunday, his only PGA Tour victory was in the 2015 Waste Management Open in Phoenix.

Long road: Koepka's journey now includes a US Open title
The 356 yard par-four 15th was the not only the toughest hole of Sunday's final round but proved key swing in the trophy chase . But he seemed to get back on track in the second round, with birdies on six of his first eight holes. "I'll go anywhere.

And now their names are on the U.S. Open trophy, one after the other. More than worrying about the uncertainty of his career, he was trying to figure a way to close one of these big ones out.
