US Open a success for pair of Wisconsin golfers

After days of being humbled, Erin Hills turned nasty for the final round as heavy winds pummeled the links-style layout adding an intriguing wrinkle to the year's second major.

The latest U.S. Open victor spoke only two years ago about how he preferred baseball.

American golfer Brooks Koepka. He ends his weekend at Erin Hills at 1 over.

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

Tommy Fleetwood, who played alongside Koepka and closed with a 72 to finish fourth, played the Challenge Tour a year before Koepka arrived. That was four shots clear of Hideki Matsuyama and Brian Harman. Smiles are rare at a U.S. Open when a player finishes before the leaders tee off. Stricker tapped in for par. He earned $2.16 million, his nation's championship and the comfort of knowing the far-flung trips to Kenya and Kazakhstan and India and beyond are all in the rearview mirror.

Mullinax shot 68 on Sunday to tie for ninth at 8 under, eight shots behind victor Brooks Koepka. Just keep doing what you're doing, you're going to win the thing. I'd like to see the fescue a little bit thinner and the fairways a little bit narrower, so it's not a full shot penalty for hitting in the fescue, but it's going to be harder to hit fairways.

Fans who wish to watch the great performances and award night online can do so with the help of the online streaming device. Underwood, Shelton, Thomas Rhett and Little Big Town are among those set to perform Wednesday night.

However, a rare wild drive at 12 led to his first bogey in 27 holes and another dropped shot at the next effectively ended his hopes of becoming the first left-handed U.S. Open champion. Play the same, too.

"I think I was just more aggressive than in the second round", he said about his third-round 82. And then he made birdie on the next hole.

Only Matsuyama displayed that kind of scoring ability Sunday.

There was one last ovation as he walked off the 18th green after putting for par.

"She's hurting, I don't know if she'll be able to caddie next week", he said.

He birdied two of the next three holes following his bogeys on Nos. It's a score that would've won all but two of the previous 116 renditions of the U.S. Open.

Xiaomi launches new gadgets in India
However, Mi Wi-Fi Repeater 2 is already listed as "Out of Stock" on the Mi India website and might soon be available again. Xiaomi, past year launched its first Mi Bluetooth speaker in India for Rs. 2,499 and it was a massive hit for the company.

Erin Hills, an 11-year-old course shaped out of Wisconsin pastureland, didn't put up much of a fight without much wind.

"Being an amateur in the U.S. Open is very cool", Scheffler said.

Well, at least Koepka's found a lot of success playing golf.

Asked about the low point, he said it came one night in Scotland when he called his agent and said he wanted to come home. It was just the third time he made the cut. "Exhausted of traveling. I just wanted to be home", he said. He won the next day to graduate to the European Tour.

"A three-wood 300 yards yesterday for Justin Thomas", he said, referring to Thomas's approach to the par-five 18th that led to an eagle for a U.S. Open record score of nine-under 63. He could not make a four, but is unlikely to care one jot.

He did it. Now, his journey includes a victory in Wisconsin - in the U.S. Open, no less.

Amit Shah Likely To Meet Shiv Sena Supremo Uddhav Thackeray
