Steve Stricker walks off the 8th green during the final round of the U.S. Open golf tournament at Erin Hills
20 Giugno, 2017, 00:39
It capped quite a journey for the 27-year-old Floridian.
Koepka broke away from a tight pack with three straight birdies on the back nine Sunday at Erin Hills and closed with a 5-under 67 to win the U.S. Open for his first major championship.
Justin Thomas bogied three out of his first five holes and finished the day at 3 over par and 8 under for the 117th U.S. Open as he finished tied for 9th.
Sixteen under is what Rory McIlory shot when he won the 2011 U.S. Open at Congressional and nobody has ever shot a lower score in an Open, relative to par.
"That was kind of the meat of the tournament", said Koepka's instructor, Claude Harmon.
"So, I think I didn't really understand the beef that it was getting for the low scores". "It hasn't sunk in, obviously, yet, and probably won't for a few days".
I hit such a good putt on 2.
Koepka moved to 14-under with a birdie at the par-5 14th hole. When he pushed a 30-foot birdie try on No. 12 a full 12 feet past the hole, he set himself up for bogey. What he does in the gym has a lot to do with why he's your new U.S. Open champion.
"I kept telling people past year after the Ryder Cup, when Brooks figures out how good he is, he's going to be a world beater", said Snedeker, who tied for ninth place at minus-8.
"It means a lot, first time play in a major and make the cut", Li told Reuters after signing his final-round scorecard.
Koepka was also tied for fourth in the US Open in 2014 - albeit 10 shots behind runaway victor Martin Kaymer - and shot 71 at Erin Hills in the 2011 US Amateur, although he failed to reach the matchplay stages.
Following Koepka in second place was Hideki Matsuyama of Japan and Brian Harman of the United States at 12-under. Harman ended up closing with a bogey.
"I was pretty content making pars on the front nine because I knew the kind of day it was", Harman said. Unfortunately, he had to come back for a fourth round Sunday and things didn't go as well. Everyone giving me a piece of advice, stick to what I've done, that's what I did today.
"I felt he's been very unnoticed and maybe not respected as much as he should have", Thomas said. He balanced three birdie and three bogeys through his round.
"To finish in double digits under par at a major championship, especially the Open, it was a good week", Fowler said. "That was kind of the changing point of the round for me".
As Koepka picked up momentum, Harman began to lose steam.
Thomas, fresh off his historic Saturday 63, couldn't back up his third-round magic.
Harman and Koepka spent much of the round locked at the top of the leaderboard. (It was his 15th major of his career.) It is decidedly uncommon for a player to win a major the first time he is in contention for one, but that's what Koepka did, wearing bright-white golf shoes that looked like basketball sneakers, a tight lime-green shirt with a big old swoosh on it and a surfer's suntan.
"I think I was just more aggressive than in the second round", he said about his third-round 82. "I can't fault his work ethic, which is a massive part of it for me".
NOTES: Scottie Scheffler, who plays collegiately for the University of Texas, was the top amateur finisher at 287 for the tournament with a Sunday round of 73.
American Brooks Koepka powered his way to a first major title in record-equalling fashion as Tommy Fleetwood's courageous US Open bid ended in disappointment.
Another major, another maiden champion. Jordan Spieth, who shot his lowest round (69) of the championships on the tournament's windiest day, said he wouldn't mind seeing the event return to Erin Hills. "I would have had to play some pretty spectacular golf to catch him". Hopefully though, in future majors I can play in the last or next to last group to give myself a better chance.
