Koepka says vanquished Johnson will win another major

20 June 2018

The 2018 US Open, the PGA Tour's second major was exactly like it was supposed to be, tough.

The elder Mr. Edwards just returned from a golf trip to the Dominican Republic, and he and his son said they enjoyed the action at Shinnecock both yesterday and today.

Despite his 7-over scoreline, he said he felt he played well in the conditions and liked his position ahead of the final round. "I mean, for the most part, we all had to play this afternoon".

What did the players say about the course? . It was nine shots higher than a year ago at Erin Hills. "I've had it with the USGA and the way they run their tournaments".

Koepka now joins Willie Anderson, John McDermott, Bobby Jones, Ralph Guhldal, Ben Hogan, and Curtis Strange as back-to-back winners of the U.S. Open. Dustin Johnson returned to No. 1 in the world by winning the FedEx St. Jude Classic. "He's one of the best to ever play the game".

Today in Trump's Prison Camps for Children: White House Ignores Their Cries
The Department of Health and Human Services said there are now 11,700 children under its care in 100 shelters across 17 states. Immigration is a critical issue across the West, not just in the USA , as Angela Merkel and Theresa May can attest.

Retief Goosen was the most recent player with a good chance of repeating since unusual did it.

Tied 16th at +8, Zach Johnson is not at all pleased with the Shinnecock Hills course that he believes has escaped the control of the USGA officials. Rickie Fowler who I picked to win the open finished his second round 6 shots back.

The field compacted, with Johnson, Justin Rose, Brooks Koepka and Henrik Stenson all having a share of the lead throughout the day.

It was the first time since Oakmont in 2007 that no one was under par going into the final day. But some greens were extremely fast, and some I felt were slow. Mickelson would shoot 81. In his storied US Open career, Woods was only cut in 2006 and 2015.

Mickelson apologised if anyone was offended by his act, even after saying he knew the rules for hitting a ball in motion and was happy to take a two-shot penalty instead of playing a crude version of tennis. If he asks me a question, I answer it. Failure to water the course to account for warm winds that were forecast well in advance resulted in dried-out greens, and ludicrously high scores on Saturday such as a 77 from co-leader Dustin Johnson.

British PM fends off Brexit parliamentary defeat
In another marathon voting session on Wednesday night, MPs overturned remaining peers' amendments to the EU Withdrawal Bill. But it made clear that "we have not, and will not, agree to the House of Commons binding the government's hands".

Berger took advantage of his mid-morning tee time with a six-birdie sortie, finishing nearly an hour before halfway leader Dustin Johnson was due to tee off. Koepka stayed in contention.

"The guys that were playing at 3 o'clock are playing a different course than the guys that played at 11", said Russell Knox, who teed off at 1:09 p.m. and shot 75. My pick started off well. Mickelson raised his arms and began a mock celebration after his par on Sunday.

"It's just a moment of madness", said Andrew "Beef" Johnston, who played with Mickelson and couldn't stifle a laugh.

Fleetwood unleashed the round of the week - indeed, the round of his life - on Sunday afternoon, carding a record-tying 63 to leap all the way up to +2. Notes: Shinnecock Hills is hosting its fifth U.S. Open and fourth since 1986. I wanted to get to the next hole and I didn't see that happening at the time without the two shots. Johnson would shoot an even-par 70 but he would not win. He finished T-27 at last year's event. "You can barely touch some of those putts going downhill, and could easily three- or four-putt from three, four, five feet".
