Brooks Koepka Ties U.S Open Scoring Record at 16-Under, Wins First Major at Erin Hills

0

American Brooks Koepka birdied holes 14,15, and 16 en route to final round 67 and first major championship at the 117th U.S. Open at Erin Hills. Koepka lead the field in greens in regulation and displayed clutch putting throughout the final round.

Brian Harman and Japan’s Hideki Matsuyama finished a distant four strokes back (12-under) in second place. Justin Thomas, who broke the U.S. Open scoring record yesterday had a disappointing final round as well as fan favorite Rickie Fowler.

Wisconsin’s own Steve Stricker shot 69, 69 on the weekend to vault into the top 20.
