Brooks Koepka won his first Major at the US Open Championship as a stunning late birdie burst handed him a four-shot victory at Erin Hills last June.
The American entered the final day one shot behind overnight leader Brian Harman. The two were engaged in a real battle for the title before Koepka made three birdies in a row from the 14th to move clear at 16 under.Harman signed for a 72 to emerge as the closest challenger alongside Japan's Hideki Matsuyama, one shot ahead of England's Tommy Fleetwood, who also carded a closing 72.
The victory was Koepka's second on the European Tour after the Turkish Airlines Open in 2014, a season in which he finished eighth in the Race to Dubai Rankings presented by Rolex.
His 16 under par winning total also matched the US Open record of Rory McIlroy when he won his first Major at Congressional in 2011."I was way more confident this week than I've ever been, I felt like I was striking the ball really well, I was putting the ball in the fairway - which you need to do out here - and then I was putting so well." he said.
