The U.S. Open is supposed to be the toughest major championship in golf to win, but don’t tell that to the 2017 field at Erin Hills in Erin, Wisc.
More than 20 players concluded the tournament under par after Sunday’s final round, including winner Brooks Koepka, who finished at a record-tying 16-under-par after shooting 5-under-par over his final 18 holes. It’s the first major tournament win for the 27-year-old Koepka.
The leaderboard lacked star power, too, as many of the game’s best players failed to even make the cut.
Rickie Fowler finished T-5th at 10-under-par, but not many other notable names had a shot Sunday. Jordan Spieth, who once was labeled the next great star after Tiger Woods, ended his four-day run at 1-over-par and T-35th.
Here’s the top 10 of the final 2017 U.S. Open leaderboard.
1. Brooks Koepka: -16
T2. Brian Harman: -12
