Koepka's big move takes US Open

A seventh successive major produced a first-time winner with Brooks Koepka the latest man to make a breakthrough at the U.S

Classy Koepka claims U.S. Open glory at Erin Hills

Brooks Koepka 117th US Open Championship, Hartford, USA - 18 Jun 2017 Brooks Koepka of the US celebrates with the trophy after winning the 117th US Open Championship at Erin Hills in Hartford, Wisconsin, USA, 18 June 2017. A par on the final hole tied Rory McIlroy's record score to par at 16 under for a four-shot victory.

He called Blake Smith, his manager at Hambric Sports, and told him, "I don't even want to play".

"Dustin called me and told me just stay patient", Koepka added.

"Yeah, no doubt. I thought it was a fantastic round of golf, given what we were dealing with to start the day", the fifth-ranked player in the world said. "To try to go out there and try to get in a top 5 or trying to get up near the lead is not what I play for".

Koepka, a three-time All-American at Florida State, began his professional career on the Challenge Tour in Europe in 2012 before moving up to the regular European Tour.

"I think it helped me grow up a little bit and really figure out that, hey, play golf, get it done, and then you can really take this somewhere".

"I feel like golf-wise I'm playing at the highest level", he said. "It's pretty cool. There were more and more people here each day and the crowds got louder, which I expected, and I loved playing in front of everybody".

From those unglamourous beginnings, Koepka worked his way up to the full European Tour before later earning his PGA Tour card in 2014. I mean there's a double (bogey) and a triple (bogey) waiting around every corner, if you just kind of take your mind off of it or just relax for a half second."There's something about majors where I just focus in a lot more".

Some of the loudest cheers at the U.S. Open were reserved for a guy who never really challenged the leaders. And all of those things put together makes him a great caddie for me.

"I hope it does", Stricker said.

Fortunately for Koepka, he made a decision to play the final round and went on to win by three shots, before attempting to drive through the night to contest final qualifying for the Open Championship.

Koepka's victory at Erin Hills impressed golf's aristocracy.

The 27-year-old Koepka wound up winning by four shots over Brian Harman, who was done in by back-to-back bogeys right when Koepka was making his run, and Hideki Matsuyama, who closed with a 66. Koepka finished with a score of 67 and tied Rory McIllroy's record for the lowest score in relation to par in history.

Koepka recorded three quick victories on the satellite circuit to make the step up to the European Tour before the Floridian eventually progressed to the US -based PGA Tour. That was a big bonus for me as I am a big ball striker.

Brooks Koepka received a short piece of advice from a valuable source on the eve of the final round at the U.S. Open.

As Koepka celebrated, England's Tommy Fleetwood quite rightly drew upon positives from his own US Open.

Koepka's victory comes in perhaps the most prestigious tournament on the tour and the biggest of all the major championships.
