Brooks Koepka wins 117th US Open

McIllroy set this record in 2011 at the U.S. Open.

Matsuyama had eight birdies and two bogeys, finishing with a flourish with a birdie on the par-five 18th to end up tied with overnight leader Brian Harman on 12-under 276, four shots behind victor Brooks Koepka. I think most of it is just knowing what they're capable of and the frustration comes when you're not seeing the results you feel you're capable of. The tournament may have wrapped up on Father's Day - Koepka hoped that his new U.S. Open trophy made up for not getting his dad, Bob, a card - but this wasn't your father's U.S. Open.

While he hit 350-yard drives with his driver and 3-wood, one of his best weapons was patience.

Li Haotong made a small piece of history by surviving the halfway cut at the US Open, but closed out a frustrating third round with a quadruple-bogey at the par-5 18th on Saturday. "It was a long phone call". But it was an important 120 seconds.

"But he just said a few things, and just stay patient".

"I needed something to go in and see that to build momentum off it, and just carried that over", Koepka said. But he started the day six shots out of the lead.

No, nobody lost the 117th U.S. Open yesterday. Instead, he went birdie-birdie-birdie, pushing his lead to a more comfortable 4 strokes with two holes to play before coasting home with his foot on the brake to become the seventh straight first-time victor of a major championship. He'll move from his present rank of No. 22 in the official world rankings into the top 12.

"I thought the USGA did a great job with the golf course", said Brandt Snedeker, who tied for ninth place.

"I've played 25 of them, and if I play another great". Matsuyama came storming home with a 66, the lowest round of the day. But Brooks played so well today.

And, as he also noted, there are no moral victories. Today my game wasn't quite there, but still got it round in level par. "Hopefully, though, in the future, in majors, I can play in the either last or next to last group to give myself a better chance".

Qatar reminds its neighbours of 9/11 as Gulf crisis enters third week
The Turkish chief diplomat held talks with Qatar's emir and foreign minister on Wednesday and plans to visit Saudi Arabia. They later issued a list of 59 people and 12 groups with links to Qatar, alleging that they have ties to "terrorism".

And they included major greenhorn Tommy Fleetwood, an Englishman who had played seven previous majors and missed six cuts but who thrived to 11 under here after shooting a closing 72.

Xander Schauffele, a rookie on the PGA Tour playing in his first U.S. Open, birdied his last hole for a 69 to tie for fifth at 10-under 268 along with Bill Haas (69) and Rickie Fowler (72), who was poised at yet another major to win only to fall back. Charley Hoffman (71) finished solo eighth at 9 under.

Brooks Koepka poses with the trophy after winning the US Open at Erin Hills, Wisonsin. His talent is unquestioned, his power admired, and his laid-back demeanor envied by many.

"That was kind of the changing point of the round for me", he said.

"I mean there's probably not that much that's that interesting to be honest". I liked it before I came here. "He might even smile". And the year's first two majors have only added to doubts over Fowler's capacity to join golf's elite.

Koepka's victory at Erin Hills impressed golf's aristocracy.

"If you had told me I was going to shoot 12-under this year at the U.S. Open and not win, I would have taken that bet for sure, " Harman said. He finished at 1-over par. In the first round, 44 players broke par, a tournament record for the opening session.

"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". Only four left-handers-Bubba Watson, Phil Mickelson, Mike Weir and Bob Charles-have won major championships.

In all there were a record 138 subpar rounds. Unable to get up and down Harman bogeyed to leave Koepka clear on 13 under. 12 and 13. A hole ahead, and fresh off his par save, Koepka began his birdie binge. Having missed out at PGA Tour qualifying school in 2012, he went to Europe, where he quickly won three times on the European Challenge Tour, the continent's second tier. "I felt like I've underachieved", he said. When Rickie wins one, there will be a big celebration because so many people are rooting for him. This week, there was just one man better. It helped him on Sunday.

"If I learned anything, you've got to put four good rounds together". It's pretty cool. I'd love to get a map and just look at all the places I've won.
