BROOKS KOEPKA LIKES HARD GOLF COURSES. They don't get much harder than Shinnecock Hills in the 118th U.S. Open. That suited Koepka but few others. Now he is one of only seven repeat champions in the long history of the national open.

Koepka fired a closing 68 to finish at 1-over 281 and edge Englishman Tommy Fleetwood (2 over), who shot a record-tying 63 in the final round. The 28-year-old Florida native opened with a 75, followed with a 66 and carded a 72 on Saturday when historic Shinnecock Hills turned into a beast and produced average scores above 75.

Bring it on, said Koepka.

"I enjoy being pushed to the limit. Sometimes you feel like you are about to break mentally, but that's what I enjoy. I enjoy hard courses. I enjoy playing about the toughest in golf you are ever going to play."

Nothing bothers Koepka, his caddie said. That's the perfect attitude for the toughest test in golf.

Curtis Strange, the last man to win the back-to-back U.S. Opens, marvels at the new...

WORLD NO. 1 DUSTIN JOHNSON, Scott Piercy, Ian Poulter and Russell Henley shot 1-under 69 on a windswept Shinecock Hills Golf Club to take the lead in the opening round of the U.S. Open.

Jason Dufner matched par with a 70.


The rest of the 156-player field wandered through 18 holes making too many bogeys and others. The average first-round score was 76.4.


Phil Mickelson had a 77. Tiger Woods and Jordan Spieth shot 78. Jason Day had a 79. And Rory McIlory carded an 80.

This is already feeling like the olden days of the U.S. Open....

RORY MCILROY DOESN'T SHY AWAY from sharing his opinion on many topics.

As GolfChannel.com reported, McIlroy was asked after the third round of last week's Memorial Tourmanent if organizations such as the USGA truly understood the abilities of tour professionals. After all, they only host the best players in the world once a year.

McIlroy said: "See, I think the USGA thinks that we're better than we actually are, if that makes sense. I think they overthink it. I don't want to single out Mike Davis here; I think it's a collective thought process....I don't think it should be as much of an exact science to set up a golf course as it is. I mean, get the fairways sort of firm, grow the rough, put the pins in some tough locations but fair, and go let...

I'VE HAD THIS IN MY EMAIL INBOX for nearly two weeks and am sorry I didn't post it earlier.


Carol Mann won 38 tournaments,
including two majors.​
LPGA star Carol Mann died recently and veteran golf journalist Jeff Babineau wrote a terrific article about her in MORNING READ.

Babineau got to know Mann through the years and captures her well in his first-person piece, including her love and stewardship of the game.

Here's how it starts:
The year was 2006, and I had what was scheduled to be an easy assignment: A two-hour ride from Orlando, Fla., up I-95 to the World Golf Hall of Fame in St. Augustine, a short tour, and then a few quick words with Hall of Fame member Carol Mann, the 38-time LPGA champion...​

ARIYA JUTANUGARN DEFEATED HYO JOO KIM on the fourth playoff hole in the first year of the USGA's new two-hole aggregate playoff format. Jutanugarn became the sixth player to win both the U.S. Women's Open and the U.S. Girls' Junior Championship.

This is the second time in Jutanugarn's prior five U.S. Open appearances that she made the cut. Her highest prior finish is T17 (2016).

Jutanugarn is the first U.S. Women's Open champion from Thailand, and the twelfth international champion since 2000.

After the ninth hole in Round 4, Jutanugarn’s 16-under-par tied Juli Inkster's (1999) record for most strokes under par at any point in a U.S. Women's Open.

Kim was the only player in the field without a bogey in the final round of the Championship, and her 67 was the lowest final round in the field.
