Joe Buck avoids Brooks Koepka girlfriend topic this time

  • Ian Poulter has never held much love for America's national championship

"When you set up a U.S. Open it is golf's ultimate test, it's probably set up closer to the edge than any other event in golf and I think that the difference then versus now is there was a lot more, we have a lot more technology, a lot more data in our hands".

That set the stage for a final round in which 15 players were separated by four shots.

Finau, who is from Salt Lake City and graduated from West High School, is in a four-way tie for first place along with Daniel Berger, Brooks Koepka and Dustin Johnson.

As he struggled, England's Justin Rose and Sweden's Henrik Stenson tussled for the lead. He can now say he's a back-to-back U.S. Open champion. This is the second straight year he is No. 1 at the U.S. Open, ending a streak of six straight years with a different No. 1 at this major. There's only six total golfers that are better than five-over par.

Koepka received the lion's share of the $12 million purse paid out in the tournament, and he also earned the championship trophy and the Jack Nicklaus medal that goes to the victor.

Koepka pushed past Johnson in the majors ledger, too, now having won back-to-back U.S. Opens.

At least not the ones who teed off in the afternoon.

He pounded his tee shot 340 yards, but it found that unforgiving rough up the right side.

Even if Koepka comes out on top, Fleetwood will still feel like a victor on father's day. Mickelson was penalized two strokes for hitting a moving ball and made a 10 on the hole, on his way to a third-round 81.

Koepka continues to hold his lead due to clutch pars like this one.

Patrick Reed, the 2018 Masters champion, opened at 30-1.

Delhi's air quality turns "severe", hazy conditions to prevail
The Environment Ministry too has requested the Delhi chief secretary to issue instructions to the agencies concerned. The Environment Ministry has warned the public that air quality may remain poor for the next 2-3 days.

Nordqvist and Pace each shot 73 - after each had a 64 on Saturday - to tie for fourth at 17 under with Jacqui Concolino (66), Azahara Munoz (68) and Angela Stanford (70).

Mickelson said he knew the action would bring a two-shot penalty, and that he had hit the ball to prevent it from rolling all the way off the green and to behind a bunker.

With scores fluctuating on a round-by-round basis, Johnson's differential between the second and third round was 10 shots - 67 on day two followed by a 77 yesterday.

Koepka starting to gain some separation, but ever so slightly.

To put Fleetwood's up-and-down rounds in perspective.

"It's easy to look at it and think I was one shy, but there's so many positives to look at and so much that you can take and learn from it".

Somehow, tying a US Open record with a final-round 63 wasn't totally satisfying for Tommy Fleetwood.

Koepka now has two major championship wins before his buddy Dustin Johnson, who reclaimed the number one world ranking after a win last week at the FedEx St. Jude Classic. The pressure is on! He can play all parts of the game. He opened in 5-over 75 (putting him six back) in hard conditions and was 7 over for the tournament and potentially fighting the cut through 25 holes.

And he's still tied for the lead.

Fleetwood is finishing strong at 6-under through 14 holes and is now in second. But only Koepka went low, and none of the other three co-leaders could mount a serious challenge. "Having said that, this golf course will get slowed down tonight". Even with the course ripe for the picking, Johnson managed two birdies on the front nine to turn at 34 but bogeyed No. 11 to fall back.

Brooks Koepka acknowledges the gallery after draining a putt on the way to victory in the final round of the U.S. Open on Sunday. It's a vast improvement from the 84 he shot yesterday.
