Koepka Goes Record Low to Win U.S. Open

Filed under: On the Job |

Marquette, MIJune 19, 2017 – It was quite the memorable weekend at Erin Hills.

For the first time in Major Championship history, the top three ranked golfers in the world missed the cut (Dustin Johnson, Rory McIlroy, Jason Day). We saw a U.S. Open record low round on Saturday from Justin Thomas (9-under 63). And we saw Brooks Koepka win his first major championship while tying Rory McIlroy’s U.S. Open record low for a tournament of 16 under par.

Brooks Koepka was on fire on Sunday in the harshest conditions of the weekend. Erin Hills saw wind gusts of 20-25 mph and with no trees on the course, the wind was a huge factor. That mattered not to Koepka, who fired a 5-under 67. Koepka hit 29 of his final 30 greens in regulation.

Anyone following golf for the last 5 years knows that Koepka has always had a ton of talent, but always struggled to put 4 good rounds together. He was able to put 4 GREAT rounds together this weekend and he will always now be known as major champion. Congratulations, Brooks.
