Brooks Koepka claims US Open Title

Pammachio Corsino | 20 Giugno, 2017, 01:56

Koepka tied for fourth at the U.S. Open three years ago, which helped him earn a PGA Tour card, and from there he powered his way from obscurity to his first PGA Tour victory in Phoenix, his first Ryder Cup team last fall and now a major championship.

The baseball analogy fits Koepka, who was a three-time All American at FSU, because his father's uncle was Dick Groat.

Matsuyama fired the lowest final round of the day, a six-under-par 66 to finish four shots adrift of victor Brooks Koepka at Erin Hills. In an interview before he'd teed off in that Scottish Challenge, Koepka was confident that he'd embarked on a journey that would stand him in good stead in the long run. But he struggled in the final two rounds. Still, this was a pretty good weekend for the 30-year-old Harman, who was playing in just his eighth major.

"Yeah, I do remember being very impressed", Russell told The Scotsman as he reflected on Koepka having now landed one of the game's biggest prizes, jumping to world
No 10 in the process.

Fleetwood, who was hoping to become only the third English victor since 1924 after Tony Jacklin (1970) and Justin Rose (2013), began the day in a tie for second with Koepka and made an encouraging start with a birdie from eight feet on the second.

Matsuyama, who also shot an impressive second round (65), ultimately paid the price for a wayward opening round (74) on Thursday and a faltering third round ( 71).

In the summer of 2012, Koepka announced his decision to become a professional golf player. He put his second shot within about nine feet. He then distanced himself from Brian Harman, whom he co-led with at 13 under, and the rest of the field, after draining three straight birdies on holes 14, 15 and 16 to pull away.

Matsuyama had eight birdies and two bogeys, finishing with a flourish with a birdie on the par-five 18th to end up tied with overnight leader Brian Harman on 12-under 276, four shots behind victor Brooks Koepka.

"I think that built some confidence", Koepka said. I mean there's a double (bogey) and a triple (bogey) waiting around every corner, if you just kind of take your mind off of it or just relax for a half second. Obviously I need to do that more often.


Fleetwood praised the victor.

After his 68 on Saturday put him in contention yet again at a major, Fowler said he was looking forward to what was supposed to be a windier, tougher day at Erin Hills. You can not describe how hard some of them are. I thought I played pretty solid on Tuesday.

It was the best major finish in his career, a lucrative day and the latest entry in a storied history for Alabama golf.

Insiders predict Oakland Hills' South Course, a Donald Ross design near Detroit that has hosted six U.S. Opens, will get the call in 2027. Wild drives were punished, as they should be. For once, the USGA managed to get it right.

"I think it's an awesome golf course", said Jordan Spieth, who tied for 35th. If you drove it in the fairway, birdies were available. That was a big plus for me. I don't want to say I'm a slow learner but it was something that took me a while to actually master.

"To be in the same category as some of the guys on this trophy is unbelievable". Ricky Elliott, the new US Open champion's caddie, realised from the moment he met his now long-time boss that the prospect of a special relationship was real.

Thomas dropped to the joint ninth spot as he underwhelmed with a three-over 75 in the fourth round. Lingmerth finished in a tie for 21st at four-under-par, while Reavie and Wiesberger were one better at -5.

Rickie Fowler's hopes of ending his wait for a major faded with an error-strewn performance, a level-par 72 leaving him six shots adrift. "If you look at the negatives too much, you're going to be stuck doing that the whole time".
