Koepka claims maiden major title with US Open victory

Brian Harman leads the US Open

Brian Harman leads the US Open

Prior to his masterclass at Erin Hills, Koepka had won only twice on the top circuits.

The muscular American, who started the day one back of the lead, tamed his nerves and a wind-whipped Erin Hills carding six birdies, including two to kick-start his round, against a single bogey for a five-under 67 to finish four clear of compatriot Brian Harman (72) and Japan's Hideki Matsuyama (66). It was kind of bombs away. "I've just got to get on the greens and have that cup start to look a bit bigger". He landed the ball perfectly on the fringe of the green and it rolled just past the hole for a makeable eagle putt. The USGA consistently has conducted it's annual event at a hard course that tests the mental and physical abilities of all the golfers.

Harman had been tied with Koepka after his birdie putt on the third did a full circuit of the hole before dropping in, but found heavy rough off the tee on the 12th to make only his third bogey of the week.

Unsurprisingly, the Open on home soil is top of the agenda for the 26-year-old from Southport, although he does not have as much local knowledge as might be expected.

As dominant as Woods was, he never reached 10-under par until the final round. "You've got to deal with that and it's all new for me".

World number 22 Koepka then uncorked a brilliant trio of birdies on the 14th, 15th and 16th holes to surge into a four-shot lead and virtually assure himself of the title.

"On the Sunday I did not play how I wanted to and it was windy and the conditions were tough".

"It feels awesome to get my name on this trophy with so many other great names", Koepka said after becoming the seventh first-time major victor in succession, a run stretching back to Jason Day's victory in the 2015 US PGA Championship.

Brooks Koepka produced a back-nine birdie blitz to win the US Open here Sunday, becoming the seventh consecutive first-time victor of a major with a record-equalling four-shot victory at Erin Hills. It's probably one of the coolest things I've ever experienced and to do it on Father's Day is pretty neat.

All-in-all, the 117th U.S. Open at Erin Hills proved to be memorable, historic and exciting. This week, there was just one man better. His prodigious hitting and minimalist demeanor evoked immediate comparisons with Johnson, but the course of winning golf rarely runs smoothly. I don't know what it is.

Brooks Koepka of the United States poses with the winner's trophy with Jena Sims after his victory at the 2017 U.S. Open at Erin Hills on June 18, 2017 in Hartford, Wisconsin.

Having eagled the first hole, Casey recovered from a bogey on the tenth to card three birdies in the next eight holes.

Fleetwood, who had made the cut in just one of his previous seven major appearances, finished alone in fourth on 11 under following a final round of 72, with Rickie Fowler, Bill Haas and Xander Schauffele a shot further back in fifth. Koepka hit 88 per cent of fairways, which meant he kept it out of the fescue grass that did for McIlroy.

3 Brooks has a brother called Chase who is also a pro golfer, whereas Brooks is in the world's top 10 Chase is a little behind ranked 875 in the world. "It was just one of those days. Came up a little short", Matsuyama told reporters through an interpreter.

Not only that, prior champions like Bubba Watson and Jason Dufner also missed the cut, leaving a lot of familiar faces on the sidelines. Scheffler finished ahead of Texas A&M's Cameron Champ, who entered Sunday's final round with a two-shot lead over Scheffler, shot a 4-over 76 to finish at 288.
