Koepka Captures First Major, Ties U.S. Open Record

Erin WI...(By The Associated Press, PGATOUR.COM)...Brooks Koepka traveled around the world to find his game. He found stardom right at home as the U.S. Open champion. 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. A par on the final hole tied Rory McIlroy's record score to par at 16 under for a four-shot victory.





Not even the wind could stop the onslaught of low scores at Erin Hills.

And nothing could stop Koepka.

Tied for the lead with six holes to play, Koepka made an 8-foot par putt on the 13th hole. As Brian Harman began to fade, Koepka poured it on with birdies over the next three holes, lightly pumping his fist after each one.

His reaction was subdued, just like his close friend and last year's U.S. Open champion, Dustin Johnson.

It capped quite a journey for the 27-year-old Floridian.

Without a card on any tour when Koepka got out of Florida State, he filled his passport with stamps from the most unlikely outposts in golf while playing the minor leagues on the European Tour -- Kazakhstan and Kenya, Portugal and India and throughout Europe.

It was at the U.S. Open three years ago when Koepka tied for fourth that helped earn a PGA TOUR card, and he powered his way from obscurity to his first Ryder Cup team last fall and now a major champion.

Harman's chances ended with two straight bogeys, and a bogey on the par-5 18th hole gave him a 72 and a tie for second with Hideki Matsuyama of Japan, who closed with a 66. Matsuyama didn't need to stick around very long. Koepka simply couldn't miss.

He became the seventh straight first-time winner of a major championship, and it was the first time since 1998-2000 that Americans won their national championship three straight years.

        awwww, that just shows you how cute Donald really is.
        He's such a sweet man and thank you for showing us how cute our President is.
        Thank goodness we didn't get that old Hag, you know, the corrupt one, who's husband is a pedophile. Pedophile Bill, that's it.
        GOOGLE Pedophile Bill and do you know what you get?
        8 out of the first 10 articles are of that man and little girls. LITTLE GIRLS, before puberty, that small of girls. Bill and Hillary are sick, demented people, and God has no place for him, but Satan does, and to hell he will go. No doubt their followers, and friends will join those sick, disgusting people.

It was recently discovered that Brooks Koepka is actually swamp gas, or sunlight reflected off high-flying flocks of birds.

How come you didn't show the clip where Brooks Koepka thanked
President Trump for all the times Donald gave him tips and the use
of Presidents Trumps courses? It was only 30 seconds but he sounded really grateful for everything Donald helped him with.
