Brooks Koepka 2018 U.S. Open Champion: First back-to-back winner in 29 years

Congratulations to Brooks Koepka, Sunday's winner of the 118th U.S. Open. He's the first player in 29 years to win the tournament in back-to-back years since Curtis Strange in 1988-'89.

Koepka defended his title with a final-round 2-under-par 68, holding off Tommy Fleetwood by one shot. He won his first major at the 2017 U.S. Open at wide-open Erin Hills in Wisconsin, shooting rounds of 75-66-72-68 to finish at 1-over-par.

Tommy Fleetwood becomes sixth to shoot 63

Tommy Fleetwood could have become the first golfer to shoot 62 in U.S. Open history, but he missed a seven-footer for birdie on the 18th hole and, ultimately, this would also keep him out of a playoff with Koepka. Still a great round that gave him a well-deserved 2nd place!

Dustin Johnson and his putting woes

World No. 1 Dustin Johnson was leading by four shots after 36 holes but seemed to have troubles with his putter during the weekend. He fell back to third place at 3-over with an even par 70 on Sunday needing 35 putts during his final round.

Patrick Reed goes close

Masters champion Patrick Reed birdied four of his first five holes and five of his first seven, grabbing a share of the lead with Koepka. However, a trio of bogeys on the 9th, 11th, and 12th holes and a missed short par putt at 18 ended his dream of winning the season's first two majors. Reed finished fourth at 4-over-par with a 68.

Tony Finau grabs a top 5

Finau was one of our favourites to win the U.S. Open. The American missed out but did manage a creditable fifth place finish.
