Brooks Koepka caps a record week with US Open title; Summerhays 65th

He joined McIlroy (2011 at Congressional) and Tiger Woods (12-under at Pebble Beach in 2000) as the only players to win a U.S. Open with a double-digit under-par score. I was excited for today. Although he had won four times on the developmental tour, once on the European Tour in the 2014 Turkish Airlines, once on the PGA Tour at the 2015 Waste Management Phoenix Open and once on the Japan Tour in the 2016 Dunlop Phoenix Tournament, he felt he had underachieved. And he said he was pulling for me and just hang in there.

Koepka is unknown to the casual golf watcher but his athletic build and solid form have made him a favorite of those that play in fantasy golf leagues.

Q. Does this sting at all for you?

Fowler's popularity is undeniable, and although he's stoic inside the ropes, he relishes the fan appreciation. When he pushed a 30-foot birdie try on No. 12 a full 12 feet past the hole, he set himself up for bogey.

"I just felt like I should be winning more", Koepka said.

"I felt like that has been the thing lately with me, why I haven't really played that well, I've been trying to win so badly".

Q. Did you have a chance to try to hit the reset button after the high of yesterday?

"I was pretty content making pars on the front nine because I knew the kind of day it was", Harman said. Teeing off at nearly 3 o'clock central time is just freakish for me, because I wake up pretty early.

"I feel really good about just about everything else", Spieth said. "I just stayed in the moment". It's probably unlike anything I've ever played in the states.

Q. Did you have any inkling on the driving range or putting today that it wasn't going to be like yesterday?

"It was always going to be hard", said his coach, Claude Harmon III.

I hit such a good putt on 2. Now, he says, "I don't even know what it was". And then 4, my ball was three inches from the hole, and it completely stopped and rolled back four and a half feet.

Take the shots one at a time, Johnson told him. I didn't think about hugging the trophy.

The scores were low at Erin Hills this weekend, and no one had a lower total that Brooks Koepka. I got off to a pretty good start, which I really haven't done yet, so that was nice. It's a score that would've won all but two of the previous 116 renditions of the U.S. Open. I liked it before I came here. Hideki started the tournament a full nine shots behind the lead after his 74 on Thursday but proceeded to put together two stellar rounds over the next three days with his 65 on Friday and 66 on Sunday in order to push Koepka for the title. "In fact, went through it with Justin Rose this morning, and looking at some of the pins, we thought they were great". Especially fairways this big. But the low scoring went much deeper than that.

Stricker was rolling down the back end of the back nine, with three birdies between the 14th and 17th holes. Brian Harman was not much in the mood for any warm, fuzzy chatter about his best performance in a major championship. I think it's a fair course. I'm sure Erin Hills and the USGA would like it to play firmer and faster to see what it would be like. "Just keep doing what you're doing, you're going to win the thing".

His friends and professional support team preached patience and pleaded with him to focus less on obsessing about victories and avoid getting down on himself.

"You've got to tip your cap, " Harman said. He'd been knocking on the door for a while.

The soft, forgiving conditions created opportunity for major movement up the leaderboard for those players willing to take it. It's insane to think that this is only his second win. "And the more patient that I can become, the more times I'll put myself in this situation". But he's a great player and he has no fear. I think that's been the consensus from everybody. A chip on the fourth nearly went in, but then trickled back to 4 feet and he blocked the par putt to the right.
