Koepka draws on Johnson's advice to close out record-equalling win

19 June 2017

I can't tell you how hard that shot is. That earned him his PGA Tour card for the 2014-2015 season.

But this week, among his peers, Koepka was certainly considered a viable contender with his ability to overpower even the biggest courses - and Erin Hills was the U.S. Open's longest layout ever at almost 7,800 yards.

"I played really well today", he confirmed. "The conditions were so tough", Harman said.

Birdie - Hideki Matsuyama: A final-round 66 gave him the lead in the clubhouse and a chance to win until the Brooks buzzsaw. "He believed he was as good as most of the lads, he just wasn't winning".

This year's tournament was played at Erin Hills, an 11-year-old course less than an hour's drive from Milwaukee, Wisconsin.

Q. Does this sting at all for you?

Sentiment and nostalgia will always find a place on the leaderboard, as 37-year-old Sergio Garcia showed by notching his first major win at the Masters in April, while 50-year-old Wisconsin-native Steve Stricker provided an emotional touchstone in an Erin Hills swan-song.

Lawyer says President Trump not under investigation
Last week, Trump sent a tweet referring to being the victim of a " witch hunt ". "Witch Hunt", the president wrote on Twitter. On Twitter, Trump dismissed as "phony" the idea his campaign colluded with any Russian effort to sway the 2016 USA election.

HARMAN: Yeah, I've been in lots of golf tournaments. I've been in the hunt in a lot of golf tournaments. For long stretches, he played like an off-handed Ben Hogan - only even more compact and somewhat less decorated.

"I played really solid from the moment we got here on Monday all of the way through today. So I think that was the changing point of the round".

"I thought it was a fantastic round of golf, given what we were dealing with to start the day", Spieth said.

"I felt like this was the lowest I could have shot", he said of his disappointing score. And then my expectations were lowered on the greens given the conditions. The greens were a pleasure to putt on, and it was easy to make putts. You could hit it far and the fairways were generous enough.

Bogey - Joe Buck: Look, Fox had a pretty good week, but you cannot misidentify the victor of the tournament's girlfriend. But this place is a fair test.

It looked as if it was going to be a nail-biting back nine, but after making a great save on 13, he birdied the next three holes to win by four shots in a runaway. You get a couple bogeys and all of a sudden, the gap was so big. And that four-foot bogey putt on No. 18 gave Harman a share of runner-up honors and saved him $500,000! I don't know how it didn't go in.

The two-time PGA Tour victor, and former Georgia star, showed a lot of heart while battling long hitters on a monstrous course. Only four left-handers-Bubba Watson, Phil Mickelson, Mike Weir and Bob Charles-have won major championships. It was just the third time he made the cut.

Qatar Petroleum CEO says gas won't be cut to UAE: Al Jazeera
The channel posted a video on its website of a column of armoured personnel carriers moving through streets. Bahrain, Egypt early this month cut off diplomatic ties with Qatar they accuse of funding terrorism .

HARMAN: Yeah, that would probably be a better question for me to answer.

He said that he didn't believe in moral victories. "But I'll try to beat him the next time". I think it's a fair course.

"I needed something to go in and see that to build momentum off it, and just carried that over, " Koepka said. He will now be talked about in the same breath as some of golf's best young players, and he has the game to back it up.

HARMAN: Yeah, my pro career, for sure.

"He went around like he was playing a casual 18", said Golf Channel announcer Rich Lerner of Koepka. Can you relate to that at all? I don't know why I feel that way, but that's just kind of the way I feel. So, yeah, I can relate to that. Rory McIlroy set the record in 2011. Really pretty much all because of a bad pin, which is unfortunate. Not so much that one person's winning or another person's winning.

"Because we played Tuesday practice round together and, I mean, he watched me play".
