US Open: Brooks Koepka wins for 2nd straight year

New York : American golfer Brooks Koepka has made history and finished strong as he became the first player in 29 years to win back-to-back US Open titles at Shinnecock Hills in New York.
The 28-year-old Florida native emerged victorious by one shot over England's Tommy Fleetwood, CNN reported.
The World number one Dustin Johnson finished third at plus-three on account of a 70.
"It doesn't get old, it feels so good. This is incredible. I don't think I could have dreamed of this, going back-to-back. It's truly special and I'm honoured," the report quoted Koepka, who missed five months of the season with a wrist injury, as saying.
"The US Open just takes so much discipline. You have got to be a great putter and just kind of let things roll off your back. I enjoy the test. I enjoy being pushed to the limit. Sometimes you feel like you are about to break mentally, but that's what I enjoy," he added.
With this, Koepka becomes the first player since Curtis Strange in 1988-89 to win back-to-back U.S. Open events.
