Koepka clinches first major with victory at US Open

Pammachio Corsino | 20 Giugno, 2017, 01:41

"I don't want to say homesick, I was just exhausted of golf".

"I put myself in some good chances over the majors over the last few years and never really quite came through". And one where, for the first time since the rankings began in 1986, the top-three on the planet all missed the cut. "It was a long phone call", he said. "It was like two minutes, it wasn't much". Koepka has finished in the top 15 at a major eight times in the last four years, including the last four he has entered, and a fourth-place finish at the U.S. Open in 2014.

"I'd won once on the PGA Tour, once on the European Tour", Koepka said. Just that I made it.

"I needed to make that if I was going to win this tournament", he said. "I come from a baseball family, and it's in my blood". That was a big bonus for me as I am a big ball striker. I was just exhausted of golf.

"Even though the scores were somewhat lower than a normal U.S. Open, but to finish in double digits, under par at a major championship, especially the Open, it was a good week".

While everything has seemed to blow over and Koepka was obviously more anxious about celebrating his win than an awkward moment with his ex, this is just another gaffe to add to Joe Buck's record. "I think it's an awesome golf course".

A four-time victor on the PGA Tour, former winner of the Players Championship and a key member of the United States' victorious Ryder Cup team in 2016, Fowler is certainly no stranger to success.

Speaking of an early-season slump this year, Koepka said, "I was grinding all day every day, in the gym every day. It is all new to me, and you have got to deal with it". "But I'm past that now".

Kopeka continues the trend and now pundits such as the Golf Channel's Brandel Chamblee are advocating courses that break the 8,000 yard barrier.

"I just wanted to be home, even though I think I had the lead at that point and was about to win the third one". Until the next time they aren't.

"I learned how to play golf over in Europe; I learned how to manage being on the road. I want to go home".


"I'm sure someone even heard me say that".

"And I felt confident all week, so to feel as confident as I did on a Sunday of a major and coming down the stretch was pretty neat". I got some length out there. They're the age that got full-blown "Tiger Slam" Eldrick Woods at their most impressionable age. Like numerous players who are consistent contenders in the Grand Slam events, Matsuyama is known for his excellent ball-striking.

It was a unique U.S. Open.

"I loved this course as soon as I saw it".

Koepka said Sunday he had been determined not to let his latest opportunity slip away.

Justin Thomas plays his shot from the 18th tee during the third round of the 2017 U.S. Open at Erin Hills on June 17, 2017 in Hartford, Wisconsin. In part, that is due to rain and soft scoring conditions. Scheffler finished ahead of Texas A&M's Cameron Champ, who entered Sunday's final round with a two-shot lead over Scheffler, shot a 4-over 76 to finish at 288. The 25-year-old also sits atop the International Team's rankings for the upcoming Presidents Cup, which will be held September 26-Oct. He ended up tied for fifth, shooting a 10 under overall.

"Those guys are going to have fantastic careers".

"It bites a little bit right now", Harman said. "So it's getting that much harder to win 'em".

What he failed to add was that not only was it windy, but Koepka scored his 67 on a course measuring nearly 8,000 yards, set up to play as hard as it possibly could. Not just the emotion; plenty of players have upheld a longstanding tradition of having fun in front of the galleries, but this crew embraces the loudest and most atypical crowds. "Open" and think it's the USGA's job to torture the best players, not simply to identify them. "I think Brooks went out and won the tournament".

"I thought the way my game sets up I think I can win multiple times a year, I really do".

There was still waist-high fescue that was as good as a one-stroke penalty, but it took a wildly inaccurate shot to find it, and Koepka did not hit too many wild shots.
