New US Open champion Koepka took the road much travelled

(AP Photo/Charlie Riedel). Brooks Koepka walks away with the winning trophy after the U.S. Open golf tournament Sunday, June 18, 2017, at Erin Hills in Erin, Wis. This came in an event where only two of the top thirty golfers after the cut were actually ones that had won a major tournament in the past.

Although he trails by two, Fowler is optimistic that he can finally land a major after a series of near-misses.

For more than half of the golfers from GB&I competing this week, the outcome was the latter.

Is it better for the game to have a megastar like Tiger or this hugely competitive array of excellent players?

Fleetwood was by far the most impressive throughout the entirety of the week. Fowler shot 72 and finished at 10 under, in a tie for fifth. Incidentally, he now moves to a career high of World No. 21 as a result of his performance. "I'd like to get a map and just look at all the places I've won". But his resume will be looking a whole lot better than this year.

World No. 1 Johnson even called Koepka on Saturday evening and told him to stick with the game plan. Koepka won the Turkish Airlines Open in 2014 over Ian Poulter and Henrik Stenson.

However, Thomas would have three bogeys in a four-hole stretch on the Sunday which would see him slip out of the frame. However, two shots stood above the rest.

Jones said he called Koepka out about his comportment, which was the subject of numerous "tough love" talks. The two remaining major championships, the Open Championship at Royal Birkdale and the PGA Championship at Quail Hollow Club both offer 600 points to the victor, and the World Golf Championships-Bridgestone Invitational awards 550 points to the victor. A one-under 71 was a good start, but he only recorded three birdies in his remaining three rounds, leaving him tied for 46th at +3. "It hasn't sunk in, obviously, yet, and probably won't for a few days". He was 2 under at the turn, and then really poured it on when he hit the back nine.

South Korea's Kim Si-Woo is one back on nine under, just ahead of Patrick Reed, Charley Hoffman and Russell Henley on eight under.

World No. 22 Koepka then uncorked a brilliant trio of birdies on the 14th, 15th and 16th holes to surge into a four-shot lead and virtually assure himself of the title.

The 28-year-old remained upbeat despite disappointment, putting it down to a lack of competitive golf this season.

"I think that built some confidence", Koepka said. It sets up really well for me, especially if I'm driving it like I did today.

Finsbury Park attack suspect named as Darren Osborne
Police confirmed one person has been arrested, with United Kingdom media reporting he was the driver of the van. Father-of-four Darren Osborne was held after a van hit Muslims after evening prayers in Finsbury Park .

Indeed, the course was bleeding, and not of the type those who follow the US Open are accustomed to.

There was still waist-high fescue that was as good as a one-stroke penalty, but it took a wildly inaccurate shot to find it, and Koepka did not hit too many wild shots.

There's one more unknown that was left unanswered for now: Will the USGA come back for another U.S. Open at Erin Hills?

Odd mentioned historical players including Francis Ouimet, Bobby Jones, Ben Hogan, Jack Nicklaus and Arnold Palmer, whose names are on the U.S. Open Trophy.

Madison's Steve Stricker finished 5 under par and did so with an exciting comeback in front of his adoring home crowd.

And it was a baptism of fire for both US Open rookies Matt Wallace and Aaron Rai, who came through qualifying for the second major of the year. His 16 under ties Rory McIlroy for the lowest 72-hole total in relation to par in the history of the championship.

Iran launches missiles into eastern Syria
Iran's Revolutionary Guard launched the missiles against the site in Deir al-Zour, according to the Tasnim news agency. Israel is also concerned about Iran's missile launches and has deployed a multilayered missile-defense system.

"We watched the finish in the clubhouse on TV", Matsuyama said.
