Just saw that Koepka was the first player in US OPEN history to hit over 80% of the fairways and 80% greens in regulation. He really helped himself with those stats......and then that putting. Wow!

I think he hit 86% fairways and 83% GIR for the week.
Wow, those stats for the 4 rounds need to be savoured. The stats of a true champion.

You had me going back through prior US Open stats to compare. David Graham in 81 in the final round at Merion hit 17 fairways and 15 GIR. That usually does the trick.

Whoa, I just realized that for the first time in history a golfer received more than $2 million for winning a tournament. (Koepka - US Open - $2.16M)

It's a beautiful thing. Then there's the bonuses he would've received from his sponsors. [emoji383]

That's just absurd! I think Curtis Strange was the first to crack 1 million for the whole season back in the '90s.
