Brooks Koepka wins the U.S. Open by four shots

Brooks Koepka was not a household name on Saturday, but by Sunday night he jumped to golf’s upper stratosphere by winning the 117th U.S. Open at Erin Hills.

It looked as if it was going to be a nail-biting back nine, but after making a great save on 13, he birdied the next three holes to win by four shots in a runaway.

Brian Harman and Hideki Matsuyama finished second at 12 under and Tommy Fleetwood was 11 under.

Xander Schauffele, Bill Haas and Rickie Fowler were at 10 under.
