Brooks Koepka Finishes Off Historic US Open Win
Brooks Koepka has put together an all-time performance.
Playing in the 117th U.S. Open at Erin Hills, the same event where he performed well enough to earn his PGA Tour Card in 2014, Koepka took his game to the next level, capturing his first major championship.
Not only did Koepka take home his first major title Sunday, but he also did so in historic fashion. A high-level last day and strong back nine helped the American finish play with a -16, which ties him with Rory McIlroy for the lowest final score recorded at the U.S. Open.
Aside from earning his first career major victory, Koepka also took home the highest single-day purse in golf, making a cool $2.16 million on the day.
Koepka also became the seventh consecutive first-time major event winner with the victory.
