Koepka In Control Sunday At US Open

Tricky conditions as players begin third round of US Open

Tricky conditions as players begin third round of US Open

Brooks Koepka traveled around the world to find his game.

STRICKER'S DAY: Home-state favorite Steve Stricker keeps feeling the love from U.S. Open fans.

Brooks Koepka is trying for his first major title, and he is off to a solid start in the final round of the U.S. Open.

This belies a fundamental misunderstanding of what the USGA is doing at Erin Hills, where wide fairways are indeed a bit more forgiving than incredibly penal rough.

And nothing could stop Koepka.

Thomas was the huge story on moving day, as he fired a nine-under 63 that included a spectacular birdie putt on the fifth hole and a closing eagle on the 18th hole.

Hazard is expected to be offered a new deal worth around £300,000-a-week. Inter Milan and AC Milan are also strongly linked with a move for Costa.

Koepka was also tied for fourth in the US Open in 2014 - albeit 10 shots behind runaway victor Martin Kaymer - and shot 71 at Erin Hills in the 2011 US Amateur, although he failed to reach the matchplay stages. They have been slashed, as U.S. Golf said, it had nothing to do with complaints by players.

And now he gets to keep it for a year, with his name on it. The affable 24-year-old now has the chance to hit new heights.

Spieth missed the cut at The Players Championship and the AT&T Byron Nelson before tying for second after shooting a 65 in the final round at the Colonial. "It's interesting to see where the USGA has gone with the U.S. Open, being a little more friendly than in years' past".

Japan's Hideki Matsuyama was battling his way into contention going four-under through 13 holes to sit four off the pace alongside Englishman Tommy Fleetwood. Matsuyama didn't need to stick around very long.

Koepka, who finished at 16-under 272, became the seventh straight first-time victor of a major championship, and it was the first time since 1998-2000 that Americans won their national championship three straight years. The 27-year-old has always been considered one of the game's most promising young players. Elliott said he would give it a try.

"Next time I'll probably stay patient and think I will be better". "Now he's done it in a major".

Regency Centers Corporation (REG) Shares Bought by Kempen Capital Management NV
BidaskClub upgraded Regency Centers Corporation from a "strong sell" rating to a "sell" rating in a research report on Wednesday. Finally, JPMorgan Chase & Co. increased its position in shares of Regency Centers Corporation by 19.9% in the first quarter.

What truly stands out at Erin Hills is the site from the eighteenth tee, affectionately called, "Holy Hill".

Fox is in its third year broadcasting the U.S. Open, having taken over from NBC's long-running coverage in 2015. But the low scoring went much deeper than that.

Harman, who had missed the cut in his four previous major appearances, also thrived with a five-under-par 67. McIlroy and Tiger Woods (12 under at Pebble Beach in 2000) had been the only players to finish there.

Four other players are tied for 10th on seven under.

Thomas, Koepka and Fleetwood are one stroke behind Harman entering the final 18 holes, while Fowler looms two strokes back.

His 9-under tour of rain-softened Erin Hills eclipsed the 8-under-par 63 carded by Johnny Miller in winning the 1973 US Open at Oakmont, and matched the all-time low for any major of 63.

Fresh off his record-breaking third round, Justin Thomas is tumbling down the leaderboard at the U.S. Open. The strongest gusts were Sunday morning and it tapered to a strong breeze by the afternoon. He opened with a pair of tap-in birdies and putted for birdie on every hole but the par-3 13th.
