US Open: Brooks Koepka wins for 2nd straight year

Brooks Koepka,US Open golf,Golf

KOEPKA DOES IT. He wins his second straight U.S. Open, becoming the first person to do it since Curtis Strange, who won in 1988 and 1989.

Players like Johnson and Spieth may be household names in the U.S., but Koepka certainly has a bright future in the game ahead of him. The best they could hope for was to hack the ball out and let it roll into the bunker on the other side of the green. He blasted that out to 8 feet and made the putt to keep his lead at 1 shot. "But I knew that it was going to be that much more hard".

2 Koepka's outsized will comes from his family. He said he was glad for the tournament's fabled toughness, for he knew it would take out half the field and highlight his competitive toughness.

"He's proven he can win on a classic" course, odd said. So this year, when Koepka went in for his celebratory smooch, Buck played it safe.

"I like where par is a good score on every hole no matter what club you got in your hand, what hole it is", Johnson said after firing a three-under 67 on Friday in front of Woods.

"This is incredible. I don't think I could have dreamed of going back-to-back". Nobody wanted to lose, let's put it that way. There were times where I came home pouting, and Chase did, too, getting beat by him.

"It's truly special and I'm honoured", the report quoted Koepka, who missed five months of the season with a wrist injury, as saying. "It doesn't matter what it is".

Dustin Johnson returned to No. 1 in the world two weeks ago, and he returned to the top of the FedEx Cup standings last week.

"You got to have some grit, some heart", Koepka, 28, said the night before. I just think he knows how important pars and bogeys are.

Brooks Koepka captured his first US Open a year ago at Erin Hills with a belligerent display of big hitting and aggressive scoring, devastating the Wisconsin course with a winning score of 16-under. "You see how talented he is".

"He has the flawless game to play in majors", Harmon said. Next year I won't either as it might bring some good luck!'

4 Fleetwood and Reed will be back.

Koepka kept his cool to two-putt the 18th and finish one shot clear of second-placed Fleetwood. He was lights out on the greens, burying tough putts from 5-10 feet when his playing partner couldn't buy a birdie putt. I enjoy hard golf courses. So it was revealing when Koepka said much the same thing on the eve of this Open. The great bogey I made on 11 was big.

"I just want to thank the USGA for holding an incredible tournament", he said. He last played the Travelers in 2016, finishing in a tie for ninth, four strokes behind Knox.

Summerhays, who grew up competing against peers like Charles Howell and briefly dabbled on the TOUR, was at Shinnecock but flew home Friday to watch his son Preston, 15, become the youngest-ever victor of the Utah State Amateur, a tournament with a 120-year history, at Oakridge Country Club on Saturday. Boyd then boarded a plane and flew back to NY, and looked none the worse for wear as he watched Finau play in the last group at Shinnecock on Sunday.

"I thought about asking him how well he knows his golf history", odd said with a laugh.

To come back, hit the ground running and win a second Major is quite phenomenal. Although the conventional wisdom said players wouldn't survive by straying from the short grass, Koepka hit just 36 fairways (64 percent) and was tied for 55th in that stat.

No one on the PGA Tour has played as consistently as Koepka in recent Majors. Keopka (29.75) tied for seventh best. The result: the scoring average dipped a little more than three strokes, from 75.33 to 72.18.

Speaking to reporters alongside the 18th green as the crowd waited for one more group to finish, odd said winning the second time was harder. It's a odd feeling when you've shot a 63 and feel disappointed.
