Brooks Koepka Wins US Open, Ties Lowest Winning Score In Tournament History

Brooks Koepka has won the U.S. Open title for his first major championship.

So on the eve of the final round of this year's U.S. Open, Johnson called to provide a little guidance: "Don't fall down the stairs", he said.

Brooks Koepka rose from the pack Sunday to lift his first major championship trophy after tying a U.S. Open scoring record.

Fowler, the world's No. 9 golfer, took to the practice course early Sunday afternoon - donning his traditional Sunday Oklahoma State wardrobe - ready to take another shot at winning his first major.

Thomas bogeyed three of his first five holes to drop back to 8 under.

One of golf's biggest hitters, Koepka also demonstrated he has a touch with the putter rolling in a monster 41-foot birdie putt at the eighth to reach the turn at three-under for the day and 14-under overall, in sight of his first major title.

That doesn't sound like the U.S. Open.

He says it may be necessary for numerous outmoded tower blocks built in the 1970s to be demolished because of safety concerns. Flowers and missing persons posters are taped to the gates of the church, while bags of donations are piled outside the door.

He entered folklore on Saturday with the 63 which represented the lowest score to par in US Open history.

Brian Harman and Justin Thomas were the last players to tee off at Erin Hills.

Harman and Koepka spent much of the round locked at the top of the leaderboard.

Here are this week's winners and losers at the 117th U.S. Open.

That's when Koepka carded three birdies in a three-hole stretch and turned a precarious one-stroke advantage into an insurmountable four-stroke lead, and, eventually, a record-setting U.S. Open victory.

T5. Rickie Fowler (-10): Even though his finish wasn't as high as the T2 in Pinehurst in 2014, Fowler's 2017 run through Erin Hills will probably be the one that many consider his closest shot at winning.

Lowry's nine-iron nearly crowned the top tier before sliding into the swale and off the green and a bogey was inevitable when he failed to hold the green with his chip. The dominance of the final round shook up what had been a crowded leaderboard throughout the weekend, and his first-time victor status continued a streak we've seen in majors that dates back to Jason Day's breakthrough at the 2015 PGA Championship.

Beyonce's twins get 'happy birthday' message from grandfather
Beyoncé has not posted on social media in about two weeks, fueling recent speculation that the birth of her twins was imminent. On Thursday, the music producer and his daughter Blue Ivy were reportedly spotted heading into a Los Angeles area hospital.

The 19-year-old Henderson closed with a 66 on the Blythefield layout that was reduced to a par of 69 - the fifth hole was played as a par 3 instead of a par 5 - the final two rounds because of flooding.

At No. 15, the unsafe short par 4, he attacked a back-right pin, and netted another birdie.

With athleticism and power, and four straight putts over the back nine that allowed him to pull away, Koepka capped off his hardscrabble journey around the world and found stardom at home as the U.S. Open champion.

"I was hoping to back-door a top 25", he said. He came up short at the par-4-15th, when a 23-foot putt stopped right on the edge of the cup.

Jordan Spieth, the 2015 US Open victor, shot a 69 to claw back to one-over.

Mullinax shot 68 on Sunday to tie for ninth at 8 under, eight shots behind victor Brooks Koepka.

Paul Casey, who was in a four-way tie for the lead at halfway on seven under par, saw his challenge effectively end with a three-over 75 on Saturday. "And I don't want to say got unlucky, I felt like I just never fully came together". When he last won a major, in June of 2015, golf's biggest events seemed the domain of only a few players. Still, after holing out, Koepka offered nothing more than a modest fist pump and a hug of his caddie.
