Hideki Matsuyama closes with 6-under 66 in US Open

19 Junio 2017, 09:31 | Gerardo Tarin

Brooks Koepka produced a back-nine birdie blitz to win the US Open here yesterday, becoming the seventh consecutive first-time victor of a major with a record-equalling four-shot victory at Erin Hills.

ERIN, Wisconsin Young Chinese Li Haotong wrapped up his first taste of major championship golf with a 12-over-par 84 to stand last early in Sunday's U.S. Open final round, but said he valued the experience.

While the top three players in the world missed the cut, Koepka showed in his U.S. Open win reasons to believe that he can join the Dustin Johnson and Rory McIlroy tier sooner than many expected.

ERIN, Wisconsin, June 18 He walked to the 18th green to a rousing ovation and left it as the U.S. Open clubhouse leader, though at five under par Steve Stricker eventually finished 11 strokes behind victor Brooks Koepka.

Harman dropped back on the back nine after going bogey-free on the final nine holes over his first three rounds.

After a poor shot on the par-3 13th, Koepka made a long putt to save par and keep him one stroke ahead of Matsuyama in the lead.

One of golf's biggest hitters, the 27-year-old also demonstrated a killer instinct along with a deft touch with the putter, rolling in a monster 41-foot birdie putt at the eighth. The only drama was if he'd become the first ever to finish at 17-under in a U.S. Open.

"A few years later, he is winning the U.S. Open".

They are close friends on the golf course and in the gym, and they play a similar game of power off the tee, a clean strike with the iron and a knack for looking calm even as the pressure is ramping up.

Brooks Koepka is closing in on the U.S. Open title.

Brooks Koepka had a stunning final-round 5-under 67 to run away with the U.S. Open title. Brian Harman was a stroke behind and a hole back, while players such as Tommy Fleetwood and Rickie Fowler stayed in the hunt.

This week alone, nine players reached at least 10 under and seven finished there. "Whether that was two back, two up front, tied for the lead, (whatever)". "I would have had to play some pretty spectacular golf to catch him". There would be another first-time major champion at the U.S. Open, and the winning score would be at double digits under par for the third time in U.S. Open history.

It lasted two minutes, long by their standards, Koepka said. Back-to-back bogeys for Harman on the 13th and 14th aligned the stars for Koepka.

"Obviously, that's just one shot, but that was a pretty big turn", Thomas said of the bogey on No. 4. He's a good golfer himself. A chip on the fourth nearly went in, but then trickled back to 4 feet and he blocked the par putt to the right. And the prime beneficiary was Thomas, who catapulted up the leaderboard with his record-breaking nine-under-par 63.

ERIN, Wis. - Jordan Spieth, the Dallasite who during a five-major stretch in 2014 and 2015 posted five top-four finishes, including two victories, was forced to set a much more modest goal Sunday. "I hate to say it's surprising, but I thought it was really well done".

Fleetwood began the day in a tie for second and made an encouraging start with a birdie from eight feet on the second. "In my opinion, I would like to see another one here down the road, sure.", Spieth said.
