Brooks Koepka wins 117th US Open

"I played two good rounds, but it wasn't enough". And I felt like I've put myself into contention so many times, and I don't want to say I got unlucky. I scrapped a little bit for it, but I felt fine. I don't know. I'm just me.

"I learned a lot this week". I thought I played pretty solid on Tuesday.

Q. How do you feel about how well you handled it this weekend? Harman bogeyed his second straight hole at 13 to fall two shots behind Koepka.

The final-hole struggle was in marked contrast to his second-round rally, when he became the first player from China to make the cut at a US Open, according to US Golf Association records. I was just trying to get in as low as I could.

JUSTIN THOMAS: Yeah, I guess so. Teeing off at nearly 3 o'clock central time is just freakish for me, because I wake up pretty early. "But he just said a few things, and just stay patient". But, yeah, it was hard to. But I think what was underestimated was how well he knew me, how well he knew my game.

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

Bogey - Patrick Reed: Captain America was rocking his Ryder Cup trousers again (Dig his style, why let perfectly good trousers go to waste?), but they didn't provide the same mojo they did during a Saturday 65. "But you've got to tip your cap to him. So I think that was kind of the changing point of the round for me". "To be honest, I'm not a big golf nerd".

Cameron Champ was the lowest amateur heading into the final round, but he finished with a 4-over 76 to drop back to even par for the tournament. "Unfortunately, that's really all I was dealt, so it's what I had to try to do".

Their scores - 13-under, 12-under, 11-under, and a trio of 10-under's - would have won every U.S. Open contested, save three.

JUSTIN THOMAS: Yeah, I like it. "That's the reason I had so much confidence coming down, especially with the par five coming up, knowing that I needed to birdie that".

However, he unfurled a sequence of five straight birdies to haul himself back up the leaderboard, carding a one-under-par 71 to finish the day at seven under.

"It will be exciting", said Spieth, who has spent the annual Spring Break holiday with Thomas and Fowler the last two years. "This will lead to more good tournaments, I'm sure". Brian Harman was not much in the mood for any warm, fuzzy chatter about his best performance in a major championship.

I think there's no reason why it couldn't host another one.

HARMAN: Yeah, well, even when I made the couple bogeys, I made the birdie right there at 14. "You have to measure success in different ways, not just by winning, just because that doesn't happen a whole lot".

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. He's a good buddy of mine. He'd been knocking on the door for a while. And I felt confident all week. Great player, great kid. A birdie at the 16th brought him within 3 strokes, but that was as close as he would get.

Second-ranked Lydia Ko had a 68 to tie for 10th at 12-under. But when he's on, there are not many people in the world better.
