Koepka rides birdie spree to US Open title

But after bogeys at the 12th and 13th holes and a birdie at the 14th, Harman could not overcome the three-birdie run put together by Koepka at holes 14 through 16. It's the first time that has happened since 1998-2000.

Leishman was just a shot from the lead at seven-under par as he stood on the 12 tee, having picked up three shots.

While thumping wind made its first appearance of the week in the final round, it stayed around for just four hours of play. "But I'm happy with the way I played, and it gives me confidence going forward". "Just keep doing what you're doing, you're going to win the thing".

With strong winds buffeting the 7,721-yard layout at Erin Hills earlier in the day, Mother Nature had appeared poised to bite back after three days of benign conditions which led to a feast of low-scoring.

He closed with a 5-under 67, only realizing after his par on the final hole that a birdie would have set yet another U.S. Open record in a week filled with them.

Speaking of achievements, one of the more impressive ones Woods managed throughout the height of his dominance was never seeming to lose his drive, even while becoming golf's first billionaire player and racking up one milestone after another.

"If you're not hitting it well, it's still hard to hit it under par, " Thomas said.

"It's been an off-putting week for me", Spieth said. None of the top 18 has won a major, making it very likely this will be the seventh straight major to crown a first-time victor.

Only McIlroy and Tiger Woods had previously finished double digits under par in the game's toughest test, while no runner-up had ever managed such a total. "They made me feel like they were pulling for me and helping me through that finish".

CARRY MY BAG, PLEASE: Jimmy Johnson has now carried the bag for two players to shoot 63 in a major: Thomas on Saturday, and Steve Stricker at the 2011 PGA.

"It doesn't matter how long, how whatever the course is", Thomas said about the longest course in major championship history. "So it's pretty simple, I just didn't get it in the hole fast enough".

Erin Hills never quite shaped up as the exacting, U.S. Open-type course it could have been. "Playing four rounds at the NCAAs helped me in this tournament because we don't play a lot of four-round events in amateur golf".

Tommy Fleetwood of England finished on fourth at 11-under, while there was a three-way tie for fifth between Xander Schauffele, Bill Haas and Rickie Fowler, who will be disappointed at failing to eventually challenge for the title, after a wonderful opening round looked like being the talented American's chance to break his major duck. The top 18 players on the leaderboard going into the weekend have combined for zero majors.

"I only had one win on the PGA Tour". He shot 68 and was only three back. It doesn't matter how long, how whatever the course is.

China's Li Haotong, who on Friday became the first player from mainland China to make the cut at a major, bombed out of contention with a 10-over-par 82. "No regrets, but I did play well".

He finished at 16-under for the tournament, tying the lowest 72-hole score relation to par in the tournament's history. I was thinking if you can get 4 or 5-under par today, it would be a pretty good score to get yourself in the golf tournament.

His closing bogey gave him a 68 and left him tied for second with Thomas and powerhouse Brooks Koepka, among those to fire a four-under round.
