2017 U.S. Open: Brooks Koepka dominates
Erin Hills to capture first major

Yahoo Sports, by Jay Hart

ERIN, Wisconsin — Just when it appeared the size of the moment might be getting to Brooks Koepka, he pulled out a 3-wood, gripped it, and ripped it. His ball sailed toward the green at the par-5 14th, and though it landed just short in the greenside bunker, it showed that Koepka wasn’t just trying to hang on to win the 117th U.S. Open. He was going to grab this tournament by the throat. Koepka pitched out, drained the birdie, then carded another right afterward at the 15th, and the victory march was on. In a matter of about 10

At a time most of his fellow competitors, save Matsuyama, were stagnant or going backward, Koepka went out on U.S. Open Sunday--always Father´s Day--and won the tournament convincingly, proving his top 10 potential as a player in a professional game with literally hundreds of players with the potential to win on Tour. He earned it, and will win again. Probably soon.

To win on Tour in any era is to defeat great competition; competition is toughest right now. If you can pardon the momentary fatuous innumeracy, there are twenty professional golfers who belong in the world´s top ten. The skill level on Tour is amazing, even to this wizened old pro who´s seen everyone of any consequence, male or female, who´s played since about 1955.

As for Erin Hills, I loved the venue, fair but penal for stray efforts, and trust that it will stay on the USGA´s Open rotation. I don´t feel that way about every USGA venue.

You might remember that my reaction to Chambers Bay in 2015 was that when Trent Jones Junior built the place, he ruined a perfectly good rock quarry. Dave Hill (RIP) would have appreciated what I said. He knew. Great championships should not be conducted on "goat ranches."

I was happy to see Koepka break through in a big way. Only his 2nd PGA win but he´s been in the mix many times. Golf has a steady stream of great talent in the pipeline too. That makes the tournaments more interesting - predicting a winner each time is pretty much impossible.

Koepka looks like he should be in the NFL draft - - not playing golf. The guy is massive.

Anyhow - - he was cool and clutch all the way today - - a well-deserved victory.

Erin Hills deserved a better chance to show its teeth, I hope #1 is right and it gets into the rotation.

Sorry to disagree, but I wish the US Open would get back to "American" parkland courses like Oak Hills, Southern Hills, etc.
Promote shot making and less gorilla golf. Leave the links courses to the British Open.

Jordan Spieth touched down at 5 a.m. in Dallas and was greeted by a huge group of family and friends at the airport. They had a champagne party and posed with the coveted Claret Jug. The group included Spieth´s girlfriend, Annie Verret, as well as his brother, sister and parents. It looks like a good time was had by all, and something tells me this is not going to be the last time this kind of celebration takes place for Team Spieth.

The State Department´s top lawyers are systematically removing the word "genocide" to describe the Islamic State´s mass slaughter of Christians, Yazidis, and other ethnic minorities in Iraq and Syria from speeches before they are delivered and other official documents, according to human rights activists and attorneys familiar with the policies. Additionally, Democratic senators are delaying confirmation of Mark Green, Trump´s pick to head the U.S. Agency for International Development who has broad bipartisan support.
