Brooks Koepka wins second straight US Open

One year after Koepka overpowered the wide fairways of Erin Hills in a U.S. Open remembered for low scoring, he navigated his way through the brutal conditions of Shinnecock Hills and closed with a 2-under 68 to become the first repeat champion in 29 years.

Fleetwood had set the clubhouse lead at two over after a scintillating seven-under-par 63 - the equal lowest round in US Open history. "It was just a moment of madness but nothing disrespectful", said Johnson. Turned out, neither did they.

Mickelson's attitude makes more sense upon learning this is the first U.S. Open since 2007 at Oakmont with zero players under par through 54 holes.

Shinnecock Hills is one of the toughest challenges in golf. The murmurs started: Maybe Reed could follow his Masters win with a triumph at the U.S. Open.

His chance for history was just short as he missed a birdie putt on 18, which would have been the first 62 in the tournament's history.

World number one Dustin Johnson shot a 70 to finish third on three over.

Fleetwood began the final round six back at 9 over but torched the opening stretch with birdies at Nos.

Ramadan is sacred to Muslims because it is during that month that tradition says the Koran was revealed to the Prophet Mohammed. Notably, Islamic calendar follows the lunar cycle, a new month begins with the sighting of the moon on 29th of every month.

In the second round, he shot a 66 to move into contention, but then had a 78 on Saturday.

The USGA pledged to ease off the severe conditions at Shinnecock Hills and, thus far, that has been the case. Fitting, really, that it was a par at a U.S. Open in which pars were so tough to get.

The 28-year-old Lehi resident started off shakily with birdies at holes 2 and 3 before coming back with birdies at 4 and 5 by sinking long putts of 35 and 25 feet, respectively. His 122-yard approach settled just three feet from the pin, giving him a smooth shot at a birdie.

In 2015 the USGA went to Chambers Bay, a raw, untried course with awful conditions and poor visibility for spectators. "There's not much else to say". The player with a bad left wrist, playing in the event that most puts that wrist in danger - at a U.S. Open with high, thick, punishing rough - needed to navigate that rough to get home with a pivotal par at 14.

In 1975, Lou Graham won the U.S. Open after trailing by 11 shots at the 36-hole mark. He then quickly jogged to the ball and smacked it back in the other direction to prevent it from rolling downhill off the front of the green and back to the same spot he'd chipped from a few minutes prior. "I could still be out there", Mickelson said while acknowledging he broke the rules in incurring a two-shot penalty that eventually led to a 10 on the hole. This time he raised his arms in mock triumph. Television (all times EDT): Sunday, 11 a.m.to 8:30 p.m. (FOX).

Dustin Johnson staggered around Shinnecock Hills like a punch-drunk boxer, reeling from one troubled shot to the next to the next. "But there is no doubt, if you look at how this morning played vs. this afternoon, it was a tale of two golf courses", Davis said.
