Bummer buddies: Roomies Fowler, Thomas fizzle at US Open

19 June 2017

Q. How do you feel about how well you handled it this weekend? Unable to get up and down Harman bogeyed to leave Koepka clear on 13 under. "And to go over there, 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 don't get too nervous".

"I didn't exactly get my dad a card, so this works". Was that a tough thing to do to pretend like that didn't happen?

Bogey - Justin Thomas: Golf is a insane sport, huh? So, yeah, I can relate to that.

While thumping wind made its first appearance of the week in the final round, it stayed around for just four hours of play.

"And I felt like I really stayed patient all week". But, yeah, it was hard to. "I think Tiger [Woods] had the best winning percentage of all time at 30 percent, and you're lucky to even sniff close to 10 [percent]".

"And I felt confident all week, so to feel as confident as I did on a Sunday of a major and coming down the stretch was pretty neat". "He went and won the golf tournament on the back nine", Harman said.

Call it the US Wide Open
Even just trying to take my medicine is very, very hard . "It's still golf, you've got to make some putts", said J.B. With a record number of scores under par in Round 1, it's no surprise the course was set up tougher for Round 2.

Elliott, the caddie, a Northern Irishman and dual citizen of the United States and United Kingdom, recalled how only four years ago at Oak Hill in Rochester, New York, at the PGA Championship, someone told him a young player needed a caddie who could ply both sides of the Atlantic.

"I thought it was a fantastic round of golf, given what we were dealing with to start the day, " Spieth said. I hit some bad drives on 1 and 2, but made some pars, made a great birdie on 3, and then just I kind of thought if I parred, kept parring, I was going to have a really good chance. I don't know how it didn't go in.

So bring on Shinnecock Hills, Pebble Beach, Winged Foot, and Torrey Pines - traditional layouts with traditional challenges - for the next four U.S. Opens, and let the carnage unfold once again. "It was one of those things where I need to make it".

"He's going to overpower golf courses, and he's got a great demeanor", said Bill Haas, who finished tied for fifth.

Johnson, one of Koepka's better friends on the Tour and the defending U.S. Open champion, called Saturday night to offer encouragement.

JUSTIN THOMAS: Yeah, I like it. He's not anxious about the low scores the first few rounds.

Restoring Stormont powersharing the priority as Brexit talks begin, says Simon Coveney
Gerry Adams , the president of Sinn Fein , on Monday called the DUP-Conservative partnership "a coalition for chaos". How Ireland will look post-Brexit could be one of the most sensitive subject of the upcoming talks.

It's been a steady rise in the sport for Koepka, if not necessarily a straight one.

The inevitable nerves that come with contending in golf's ultimate test didn't bother 27-year-old Brooks Koepka. That's just how it is. He edged Rickie Fowler on the leader board and he still holds a slim edge on him for the title of best current player without a major. I think it's a fair course. "But in my opinion, I would like to see another one here down the road, sure".

Q. Can you talk about Brooks and not just winning but doing it the way he did? I put myself in some good chances over the majors over the last few years and never really quite came through. He's a good buddy of mine. You look back at all the wins, even on the Challenge Tour. He'd been knocking on the door for a while.

"It will be no surprise to many people back in Europe and certainly no surprise to all of the leading Europeans with whom he played with and against, and who he defeated in Turkey in 2014 as part of the final series in which they all played". He's played so well in the majors and played great in the Ryder Cup. Think about that the next time your hands are shaking over a two-footer to win a $2 Nassau. But he said the wind wreaked havoc with his putts, blowing them off line and putting him in spots where "getting kind of the right gust at the right time was kind of key". I had an opportunity today and I didn't get it done.

Tommy Fleetwood of England finished fourth at 277.

Led coalition downs Syrian warplane in 'self-defense'
By comparison, the Syrian army said its forces had been fighting IS in a statement released by the government-owned SANA agency . The coalition shot down a Syrian plane in self-defense after a regime SU-22 dropped bombs near SDF forces, the statement said.
