Brian Harman-US Open Erin Hills

One criticism Fry thought the players might have is the long, gruelling walk.

The buddies who shared a house near Erin Hills also shared the misery after a wind-swept final round in which they never got themselves into the mix.

"I feel like golf-wise I'm playing at the highest level, " he said.

The Globe's most recent sports headlines delivered to your inbox every morning.

"That's awesome", Koepka said. And then the reception and all the support I got all week long was unbelievable."It was a pretty special week all around". I felt like I did a lot of good things, especially in the first round, executing my game plan.

Wise opened 62-62-67 to take a six-stroke lead into the final round.

On Sunday, the Abbotsford, B.C., native made three double bogeys in a row beginning at the eighth hole and finished the championship at nine-over par, with an eight-over final round of 80. He carded three straight birdies on Nos. 11, 12, 14 and 16. That run put him alone in second place and one behind Koepka, who was through 13 holes. "He went out and won the tournament on the back nine".

U.S. Open champion Brooks Koepka revealed a phone call from Dustin Johnson helped him stay patient during the final round at Erin Hills.

Brooks Koepka walked up to the eighteenth tee on Sunday afternoon with a comfortable lead over his nearest challenger, Brian Harman.

Kite shot even-par 72 in gusty winds in 1992 at Pebble Beach, winning by two strokes over Jeff Sluman.

Thomas' 9-under 63 also broke Johnny Miller's U.S. Open record for low round in relation to par. Harman bogeyed his second straight hole at 13 to fall two shots behind Koepka.

Rickie Fowler-US Open

"The par save on I think that built some confidence", Koepka added.

"I don't know if I have 14-under in my bag to play".

Although he suffered a three-putt bogey on the 10th - his only three-putt of the championship - Koepka took control coming in with birdies on the Par 5 14th, getting up and down from a greenside trap, the 15th from 12 feet and the 16th from 15 feet.

Compatriot Andrew Johnston dropped five shots in five holes on his front nine but rallied with a couple of birdies on the back nine as he closed with a three-over 75 and two over total.

And when he completed his hat-trick from 16 feet on the 16th, all that was left to decide was whether he would equal or break McIlroy's record.

"It was kind of bombs away". "You could hit it far, and the fairways are generous enough to where you can still miss it and hit the fairway".

Mullinax shot 68 on Sunday to tie for ninth at 8 under, eight shots behind victor Brooks Koepka. The Englishman has enjoyed a breakout season on both the European and PGA Tours this year, and this capped his status among the game's rising stars.

Torrential rain that doused the 7,818-yard layout at Erin Hills overnight presented the field with a feast of birdie chances, transforming the leaderboard into a sea of red as dusk fell. Bidding to be the first Japanese player to claim a major championship title, the 25-year-old posted not only the low round of the day but his best-ever finish in a Grand Slam event.

Those accomplishments were just a lead-up to Sunday's life-changing, record-tying victory.

Asked about avoiding sectional qualifying next year, Schauffele said, "That's another thing I didn't know".
