Brooks Koepka captures 1st major title at US Open

19 Junio 2017, 03:45 | Gerardo Tarin

Fleetwood picked up a victory in Abu Dhabi on the European Tour while Rickie Fowler, who will start two behind the pacesetter, is widely regarded as the current best golfer not to have won a major. "But it isn't a U.S. Open course that I'm familiar with the way it was set up". Johnny Miller in 1973 shot an 8-under 63.

Dustin Johnson vowed to work hard on his putting and expressed his disappointment that his defence of the US Open title ended with a missed cut. We had 0.9 inches of rain last night, and it turned Erin Hills into a dart board. And that was before his record-breaking Round 3 at Erin Hills in Erin, Wisc.

But that was just one of many highlights for Thomas. But his chip landed short of the green on a ridge, leaving him a almost impossible putt to hold the green. A sublime floated wedge to three feet allowed him to escape with only his third bogey of the week. "So I did a really good job of staying present, staying focused on the next shot".

Day and McIlroy, just to name a few, might not make it that far. "I just get a little shaky and jittery on putts and that's what happened on 15".

"Struck it well, hit a bunch of greens, and that's what you've got to do to play well around here". They have been slashed, as U.S. Golf said, it had nothing to do with complaints by players. "I don't know what I'm going to feel".

A dizzying day of action could be topped on Sunday with six players within three shots of the lead all eyeing their first major. There were five players in double digits Saturday at Erin Hills.

The last six majors have been won by first-timers, and that cycle has a good chance to continue. Kim Si-woo, the recently crowned Players Champion, is at minus nine.

Harman, who is bidding to become the first left-hander to win the US Open, knocked in six birdies. "When you give us soft greens, good greens and not much wind, you know there are going to be some good scores".

"I'm proud of the way I hung in there today".

Around 70 minutes earlier, compatriot Patrick Reed had faced a similar length putt to Thomas on the 18th to shoot eight under but missed his birdie attempt and had to settle for a 65. "It was obviously an awesome day". It's a reality that at least partially explains that chip.

Russell Henley (67) and Charley Hoffman (68) are all in a group four off the lead on eight under. I'd love to have another one of those.

"I struck the ball the same way I have been".

"It's just been trying to figure it out on and around the greens".

"I was able to get to a few under by just accepting the fact that the putt might miss instead of having to have it be ideal".

And then Friday, a 94-year-old man at the tournament for the first time stopped breathing while in a grandstand on the sixth hole and died of what Washington County officials said appeared to be natural causes.

Johnson bogeyed the ninth and got the shot back at the 12th, but bogeys at the next two holes dropped him back to three over and another dropped shot at the 17th sealed his fate.

Koepka also reached the green in two on the 667-yard closing hole for a two-putt birdie and a 68.

The 24-year-old world number 13 took advantage of benign conditions at Erin Hills to start with back-to-back birdies on the sprawling Wisconsin course.

The defining shot of this tournament however put that to shame. He birdied the 18th, his 10th of the week to go with nine bogeys in his opening three rounds. He has four tournament wins, but never finished higher than tied for 18th in a major championship.
