Golfer denies girlfriend a kiss and fans aren't impressed

Brooks Koepka

Overnight leader champion elect Brooks Koepka tearing it

Brooks Koepka is the betting favorite to become the second golfer to win three straight U.S. Opens.

Florida State Men's Golf has now been part of eight Major titles, with Koepka adding to his lead among Seminole Major Winners with four.

Koepka, who had started the final day at Bethpage with a seven-shot buffer, narrowly secured a two-shot win over Johnson after recovering from four consecutive bogeys.

Dustin Johnson was hot on Koepka's heels but simply unable to get the job done over the final few holes, finishing 6 under after posting a 69 on Sunday. One top 10, T-7 2016 PGA Championship, is a poor return for a player of his talent. But what about Greg Norman at the 1996 Masters?

"I'm just glad we didn't have to play any more holes", he said.

"That was a stressful round of golf", Koepka said.

Though impressive-looking, it has osteoporosis. "In fact, the U.S.is like World Trade Building that collapses with a sudden hit". Mr Ibsen's comments come after a Senator warned Tehran the U.S. would win a war in the Middle Eastern country "in two strikes".


"I played really well". "It seems there's 30 or 40 guys on a flight, basically the whole flight is everybody, you know, players, caddies, things like that".

"It was the first time I had ever caddied for someone in a Major, and I said "absolutely". This is so cool". "This is one hell of a place to play Ryder Cup". That restored the lead to six shots, and the coronation was on.

A duffed chip and a bogey at the first hole in round four by clear third-round leader and defending champion, Brooks Koepka, gave a tiny bit of encouragement to the chasers.

Winning four of his last eight majors is a stretch not seen since Woods won seven out of 11 when he captured the 2002 U.S. Open at Bethpage Black. Scottish golfer Willie Anderson won the U.S. Open in 1903, 1904 and 1905.

"I think we're all playing for second, " List said. "To be standing here with four majors is mind blowing".

"Today was definitely the most satisfying out of all of them for how stressful that round was, how stressful D.J. made it". There have been some low rounds this week and I don't know what the wind is supposed to do.

Romney: 'I don't support the Alabama law' effectively banning abortion
The Alabama law was written with the assumption that it would face legal challenges and could ultimately end up at the high court. On May 8, at a rally in Panama City Beach, Florida, he again brought up the topic.


Koepka revealed earlier this week he has a "number" in mind for major titles. The groan of the crowd told him Johnson had missed. "I challenge anyone to play this course in 15-to 20 miles-per-hour winds and see what they shoot". He's naturally reticent to be in the spotlight, and yet is riled easily when he perceives he is not getting the attention he should.

"I've got Colonial next week, which is going to feel like a pitch-and-putt by comparison, then the Canadian Open". I took 9/1 about there being a wire-to-wire victor when I looked at all the side markets on Wednesday so that was the icing on the cake.

His deadpan demeanor on the course is a deliberate ploy to stay focused and guard against his hot-headedness as a youngster, he says. To Koepka, it was more like a natural disaster: It's not the house's fault the tornado hit it.

He traveled widely, from Kenya to Kazakhstan, learning his trade, gaining life experiences and growing up. He was not quite the preternatural teenage sensation like Woods or Spieth; his first PGA Tour win came at 25, and first major at 27.

Koepka discovered his major mojo at the 2017 US Open at Erin Hills, and is now building a body of work that could serve as a blueprint for future generations.
