Fowler ready to break major duck at US Open

Fowler ready to break major duck at US Open

Emotion? The most he displayed was a light fist pump, his hand clenched a little tighter with each birdie, and a double fist pump on the 18th when he tapped in for par. Aoki finished second to the legendary Jack Nicklaus at the 1980 U.S. Open.

A one-time victor no longer, Koepka has set his sights even higher, adding: "We started out this year and I thought I needed to win multiple times and a major".

3 Straight American winners of the Open, the first time that has happened since 1998-2000.

"I'm looking forward to my shot at it, I know it's not going to be an easy day, for sure", Fowler said. "It was a case of "just keep doing what you're doing, you're going to win the thing". "I was striking it unbelievably, my speed control [on the greens] was great, and I was fighting the ball".

"The consensus from anyone that I've talked to is they really like the golf course". I couldn't possibly shoot any higher than I did. "I felt like I've underachieved", he said. "It's simple", Johnson said.

The week ended with 31 players under par, breaking the U.S. Open record of 28 players at Medinah in 1990.

Rickie Fowler is confident of "getting the job done" after resurrecting his hopes of a maiden major at the US Open on Saturday.

Only Matsuyama displayed that kind of scoring ability Sunday. He won his first event as a senior, then added two more titles by the season's end.

Woods won 14 majors in 46 starts from the 1997 Masters to the 2008 U.S. Open, an nearly other-worldly record in a sport where a 10 percent winning record is considered outstanding. After sinking the eagle putt on 18, his 63 put him at 11 under heading into the final round, and a stroke off the lead.

"It means a lot, first time play in a major and make the cut", Li said after signing his final-round scorecard.

Asked whether it had sunk in, he said, "Uh, no".

McIlroy and McDowell both failed to make the cut at the tournament in Wisconsin. Niebrugge finished on Saturday with his only round under par, and a tie for 35th.

Trump Attorney Insists President Is Not Under Investigation
Trump returned to the White House on Sunday after spending Father's Day weekend at the Camp David presidential retreat. Trump has denied making these comments, which Comey said he documented in contemporaneous memos.


The best of the action from the final... I played two good rounds. It was a pretty special week all around. "We had a great time", Stricker said. I thought I played pretty solid on Tuesday.

"I did not know that".

Tied for the lead with six holes to play, Koepka made an 8-foot par putt on the 13th hole.

The muscular American, who started the day one back of the lead, tamed his nerves and a wind-whipped Erin Hills carding six birdies, including two to kick-start his round, against a single bogey for a five-under 67 to finish four clear of compatriot Brian Harman (72) and Japan's Hideki Matsuyama (66). They're very much a similar player, where nothing seems to bother them. "It's truly an honor".

Brooks Koepka is the new US Open champion after a superlative round on the final day of competition at Erin Hills.

And the 26-year-old from Southport, who finished a shot ahead of world number one Dustin Johnson to claim his second European Tour title in Abu Dhabi in January, paid tribute to Finnis.

Fleetwood, who was hoping to become only the third English victor since 1924 after Tony Jacklin (1970) and Justin Rose (2013), began the day in a tie for second with Koepka and made an encouraging start with a birdie from eight feet on the second.
