Bummer buddies: Roomies Fowler, Thomas fizzle at US Open

Brooks Koepka cracks a joke about the riveting pep-talk Dustin Johnson gave him

Kim is a rising 21-year-old, but most fans along the ropes weren't craning their necks to see him.

Koepka parred the final two holes to tie the U.S. Open's 72-hole scoring record (in relation to par).

"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".

To say that this version of the golfing Koepka is new is a grand understatement.

"I knew I hit it really well", he said.

Brooks Koepka shot a 5-under 67 to finish at 16-under 272 and match Rory McIlroy's tournament record for most shots under par.

Tommy Fleetwood of England finished fourth at 277.

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.

The winds died down as the afternoon wore on, and Hideki Matsuyama, bidding to become the first Japanese victor of a men's major, took full advantage. Koepka gave a shot back on the 10th when he missed a 10-foot putt for par, it was his first back-nine bogey of the week. He went and won the golf tournament on the back nine.

On the 13th hole, Koepka sank a par putt to give him the outright lead after Harmen bogeyed on the 12th.

Koepka was the first to strike, making a birdie on the first to go to 12 under and take a share of the lead.

Brian Harman in the final group behind him made back-to-back bogeys and couldn't catch up. "It was probably one of the best shots I've hit all week, to be honest with you".

Doherty was on course for a maiden victory on the second-tier circuit in the Hauts de France Golf Open at Aa Saint Omer when he covered the opening 11 holes in the final round in three-under to sit at the top of the leaderboard on nine-under. Everyone giving me a piece of advice, stick to what I've done, that's what I did today.

"I am playing nicely and I have got the French Open, the Irish Open and the Open coming up in the next month". But at the same time, I don't feel as though I lost the golf tournament. "It made me feel a lot better seeing Brooks shoot 5 under". But because of a tucked back-right pin that yielded just six birdies all day, Koepka laid up off the tee, and he did not lay up particularly well.

Fowler did birdie that first hole but could get little going beyond that.

"It was a long phone call for us - it was like 2 minutes", Koepka said.

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

Koepka began filling his passport.

U.S. THREE-PEAT: Koepka is the third straight American champion of the U.S. Open, following Jordan Spieth and Dustin Johnson. He proved such a trembling mess that he birdied No. 14, birdied No. 15, birdied No. 16 and sprinted from the others.

The good times continue to roll for the Florida State Men's Golf program as Seminole Alum Brooks Koepka broke into the professional golf spotlight by winning the U.S. Open on Sunday evening at Erin Hills.

Matsuyama's 66 was the best score on a windy final day, one better than Koepka.

Koepka took it from there - a victory in Turkey against a strong field, his first PGA Tour victory in the Phoenix Open, his first Ryder Cup. and now a major championship.

"I thought the USGA did a great job with the golf course", said Brandt Snedeker, who tied for ninth place. In dedicating the victory to his dad, Bob, on Father's Day appropriately, Koepka said: "This will make up for the card that I didn't get him".

In all started on day one.

"He'd been knocking on the door for a while", said Justin Thomas, a two-time PGA Tour victor in 2016 who was in the final pairing.

Rickie Fowler was able to find plenty of positives from his performance at the U.S. Open despite letting another major slip through his fingers. The broad fairways here and enormous length (7,741 yards, longest in a major championship) allowed them to show their power and raw if sometimes not quite polished gifts.
