US Open Golf Championship

American Brooks Koepka played one of the great final US Open rounds to win the 2017 championship by 4 shots from Japan's Hideki Matsuyama and fellow countryman Brian Harman. In doing so he equalled the lowest US Open four round total of 16 under par, now sharing the record with Rory McIlroy.
Australian's didn't fair so well with four of our five starters missing the cut (Day, Scott, Flanigan and Ormsby). Marc Leishman made an encouraging start in the first round but faded over the weekend to finish in a tie for 27th, 15 shots behind the winner.

In 2018 the US Open heads to Shinnecock Hills, Southampton, NEW YORK
