Matsuyama joins Aoki as major runner-up from Japan


But with the gusts gradually weakening over the course of the afternoon, Koepka and Harman picked up where they left on Saturday, seamlessly getting into the groove early on to jump ahead of the field. He earned $2.16 million, his nation's championship and the comfort of knowing the far-flung trips to Kenya and Kazakhstan and India and beyond are all in the rearview mirror. His impressive score is only matched by Rory McIlroy's signature 16-under performance at Congressional Country Club in Bethesda, Md., in 2011. It was awesome to me that he said in the presentation ceremony that he felt "confident" throughout the entire round today.

"I think the Ryder Cup was kind of the first real taste of true pressure I think I've ever felt", Koepka said. "It hasn't sunk in, obviously, and (it) probably won't for a few days". "I finished fourth in the US Open, I can't be too snotty about that". Golf fans saw a potential new star emerge, but the tournament's finish was a far cry from what we saw at the Masters in April.

Koepka carried a one-stroke lead into the back nine after a birdie at No. 8, but quickly fell back into a tie with Harman.

Koepka, 27, claimed his first major on Sunday, carding a five-under 67 in the final round to secure a four-stroke victory.

He bogeyed the 12th and 13th holes. Harman, who had begun the day in a four-way tie for the lead, carded a five-under-par 67 which included six birdies and one bogey. Perhaps the only blot on his landscape - other than the shots he dropped at the 6th and 15th - was the warning for slow play he received on that 15th hole.

I think it's significant that they had the reputation historically of being one of the most militant mosques in London . There has been an increase in hate crime reports since the Manchester Arena bombing and the London Bridge attack.


"It's unbelievable. I don't even know what to say right now", Koepka said as he accepted his trophy.

"You've got to tip your cap".

Hideki Matsuyama, of Japan, shakes hands with his caddie after his fourth round of the U.S. Open golf tournament Sunday, June 18, 2017, at Erin Hills in Erin, Wis. "I got hot with the putter for a while". "Hopefully, though, in the future, in majors, I can play in the either last or next to last group to give myself a better chance".

"At the 10th I just hit a poor putt and at 11 I did the same thing, just trying to be aggressive and hitting the back of the hole".

HARMAN: I think maybe the approach into the par-5 on the back, 14, after I made a couple bogeys to knock it in there to make birdie.

As of now, the logical way to go is to continue the partnership between Sony and Marvel . The poster sure looks promising and we can't wait to catch all the action.


Harman and Koepka spent much of the round locked at the top of the leaderboard. But a par at 13, Koepka admitted afterward, meant even more. You're just kind of hitting little chip cuts and just keeping it low, trying to get loose more than anything.

"Today is more like a British Open but they were soft conditions", the Big Easy said.

A day on from shooting a record-breaking nine-under 63, Justin Thomas went round in 75 to finish tied-ninth, while Patrick Reed (74) also failed to challenge. One of the last seven major champions might turn into a dominant player. But knowing, like I said, that I would have had to shoot 5-under just to get in the playoff, that's really, really good golfing out here today.

Koepka also noted that the major title was especially sweet on Father's Day since he didn't get anything for his dad. The 20-year-old closed with a birdie and finished at 1-under 287, one shot better than amateur Cameron Champ.

Brooks Koepka made it sound simple, this winning of the 117th U.S. Open golf tournament Sunday at Erin Hills. Fowler, 28, resurrected his hopes of a maiden major title on Saturday with a four-under-par 68.
