Golfers seem to give good reviews to US Open at Erin Hills

"Did you see that fist pump there on 18", Koepka said with a proud smile.

"I feel like golf-wise I'm playing at the highest level", he said.

Three weeks later he took the Scottish Hydro Challenge, and gained automatic membership onto the main European Tour. For us it was like two minutes it wasn't much.

"I made the birdie right there at 14. then (Koepka) birdied 14, 15, 16", Harman said, "and that was kind of lights out". "And I built a lot of confidence off of that". "I would think they would want to change a few things if it comes back here, maybe narrow the fairways a little bit".

"I played really solid from the moment we got here on Monday and all the way through (Sunday)", Koepka said. Not a big fan of losing.

"I needed to make that if I was going to win this tournament", he said.

So the Koepka who, in a golf cart leaving the last green, put his hands over his face, pulled his hat over his eyes and seemed to melt with relief is a more accurate picture of the golf champion of America.

Koepka credits staying patient for his victory. His round of 66 was over almost 90 minutes before Koepka strolled to the 18th green, with the tournament all but wrapped up. "I think it's a fair course".

Shiv Sena puts BJP in quandary
We had suggested Mohanji's name and he remains our first choice even today. Thackeray said the situation has changed because of unrest against BJP.

"Well, it wasn't going to be like yesterday, regardless", Thomas said, acknowledging that record-setting days don't come around all that often. "But I'm past that now".

Even when playing the course virtually in The Golf Club video game, it was a blast. Scheffler finished ahead of Texas A&M's Cameron Champ, who entered Sunday's final round with a two-shot lead over Scheffler, shot a 4-over 76 to finish at 288. "I don't know why - I just couldn't stand the fact that I had only won once". Until the next time they aren't.

"I just felt like I should be winning more", Koepka said.

It also gave hope to a couple of golfers from Wisconsin - Steve Stricker and Jordan Niebrugge, who had to qualify to reach the field of 156 players. It was so tough out there with strong winds and tough pin positions but I played great, holed out great, putted lovely, did everything well.

"So you had to play different shots and the wind is really blustery out there".

So let's hold the talk about being "chill".

Right now, there may not be any sport in America where you can be as good as Koepka - nearly everyone in golf thinks that the ex-Florida State star, ranked No. 22 in the world, is a major figure of the game's future - and yet have so many genial, obsessed, talented players of your generation, your own buddies, who are constantly trying to grind you to dust by their sheer numbers.

Yes, both of them, neither to be mistaken with anything Tiger Woods has done over the years. Dustin Johnson, Rory McIlroy and Jason Day all failed to get past the second round.

US shoots down pro-regime drone in Syria
It's also the same location where another pro-Assad UAV dropped munitions near coalition forces before it was shot down on June 8. Russian Federation is the main ally of the Syrian regime and strongly protested the USA shootdown.

The winds died down as the afternoon wore on, and Hideki Matsuyama, bidding to become the first Japanese victor of a men's major, took full advantage.

"I love travelling. I'll go anywhere".

The American equalled the tournament's lowest winning score of 16 under to claim his first major. In part, that is due to rain and soft scoring conditions.

We won't be mixing these guys up much longer.

Japan's Hideki Matsuyama played lights out on Sunday to improve his position in the FedExCup standings, recording a 6-under 66 to finish in a tie for second with American Brian Harman. The 32-year-old ended the weekend in Wisconsin tied for 92nd. Si Woo Kim, who lurked all week, is 21.

278: Xander Schauffele (66-73-70-69), Bill Haas (72-68-69-69), Rickie Fowler (65-73-68-72).

"Those guys are going to have unbelievable careers. I hate to say it's surprising, but I thought it was really well done". "I think it's really cool. This is major No. 1 and hopefully many more to come".
