Brooks Koepka repeats as US Open champion

Tiger in awe of in-form Johnson at U.S. Open

However, that cut little ice with Ian Poulter, who responded angrily to Davis's comments following a 76 which left him four shots off the lead.

Fleetwood must console himself with a cheque for $1.2m and a share of history.

He has barely missed a beat in his return, finishing tied for 11th at the Players Championship last month and runner-up at the Fort Worth Invitational with three rounds of 67 or better as he warmed up for his title defense. It was the first U.S. Open since 2013 where no golfer broke par.

Fleetwood also shot a stunning 63 in Sunday's final round of the 118th US Open, agonisingly missing from eight feet for birdie on the 18th to equal the all-time major record of 62 set by Branden Grace in last year's Open Championship at Royal Birkdale.

Fleetwood carded a 63, becoming the sixth player to record that score at the U.S. Open and just the second to do it in the final round.

Koepka won his first major at last year's US Open where he finished four shots clear of Brian Harman and Hideki Matsuyama.

"I don't want to say I didn't think I could do it, but I knew that it was going to be that much more hard", Koepka said of winning a second major.

That allowed the 28-year-old the luxury of a bogey on the 18th and he eventually signed for a 68 to finish one over par and just a shot ahead of Fleetwood, with world number one Dustin Johnson a stroke further back.

The segment started with Corden seated in his vehicle before making a phone call and channelling one of The Beatles' best-known hits.

"I knew I was kind of [feeling good] in it teeing off, but you still have to get off to that good start", Fleetwood said on the Fox broadcast (h/t Adam Silverstein of CBSSports.com). Just being within the right zip code, it gives you a chance tomorrow. Marc Leishman was near the lead partway through the third round before a four-putt triple bogey unravelled him, and he finished 45th after a 74 today. He has every excuse in the book - and he's still part of a four-way lead, along with Berger, Finau and defending Open champion Brooks Koepka. ". All the way around, I always felt like I could get myself back in it".

The top 10 finishers (and ties) are exempt for the following year's U.S. Open while the top four finishers (and ties) are invited to next year's Masters Tournament.

And I feel for the USGA because I don't think this was their intent.

Koepka received the lion's share of the $12 million purse paid out in the tournament, and he also earned the championship trophy and the Jack Nicklaus medal that goes to the victor.

Reed fired five birdies in his first seven holes but cooled off coming in for a two-under 68. There definitely will be one more major at least.

"This is incredible. I don't think I could have dreamed of going back to back".

Third-round co-leaders Daniel Berger and Tony Finau had a rough start and are up to 5 over as they approach the turn.
