Brooks Koepka wins US Open

Koepka also noted that the major title was especially sweet on Father's Day since he didn't get anything for his dad.

He found stardom right at home as the U.S. Open champion.

Koepka mixed five birdies with a sole blemish during an impressive display, with his 16-under-par total equalling the lowest 72-hole score in US Open history. "I had an opportunity today and I didn't get it done".

"It hasn't sunk in, obviously, yet, and probably won't for a few days", said Koepka. "It wouldn't be any surprise if either one of them come out guns blazing and win with the way they've been able to do that in other events".

"To get the calls and text messages I did last night was pretty special".

"It's fun to be out here and play under the most brutal conditions you can play under", Putnam said. "That's what I did, and I felt really confident".

His margin of victory was four shots over two golfers who tied for second place - Brian Harman, also from the US, and Japan's Hideki Matsuyama. Harman, the third-round leader at minus-12, shot an even-par 72.

Harman finished with a bogey on 18. "But Brooks played so well today".

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. Was 5-under the round of the day, him and Hideki, I guess? "It was a fantastic round of golf, given what we were dealing with to start the day", Spieth said.

But the year's second major belonged to the young guns who tackled the longest layout ever for a U.S. Open. He most likely held the win at -14, but displayed his strong mind by increasingly closing the gap as he got closer to the finish line, with a final score of -16. "I've a week off and then I'm going to France and see what I can do there". "I know I'm going to be nervous, I just need to harness that as best I can".

"I hope the moment will come as soon as possible". It might have been just if he parred it.

"There's a big couple of months coming up and I feel like my game is in decent condition".

But in the end, a four-hole stretch of par and three birdies made Koepka - a 2008 graduate of Cardinal Newman High School in West Palm Beach - a household name.

Starting the final round with a bunched leaderboard, Koepka and Harman emerged from the pack to trade blows throughout the front nine. "I can't fault his work ethic, which is a massive part of it for me". "He went and won the golf tournament on the back nine".

But the American then paid the price for an over-aggressive birdie attempt on the 10th which sailed past the hole leaving an awkward putt to save par. But a par at 13, Koepka admitted afterward, meant even more.

"With all his peers winning that were younger than him, 27's not that old, but he thinks he should be winning every week", Elliott said, per the New York Times' Karen Crouse. When that happened it gave me a lot of confidence.

"That was kind of the changing point of the round for me", he said.
