For the second year in a row, Brooks Koepka is the U.S. Open champion.
Koepka claimed his second straight win in golf’s second major of the year with a 2-under-par fourth round at Shinnecock Hills, finishing the tournament at 1-over-par. With the victory, Koepka became the first back-to-back U.S. Open winner in nearly 30 years.
The 28-year-old concluded the afternoon one stroke ahead of Tommy Fleetwood, who dazzled Sunday with a 7-under-par-63. Dustin Johnson, the 2016 U.S. Open champion, finished in third place, while 2018 Masters champ Patrick Reed and Tony Finau rounded out the top five.
