On a day when so many players complained about the course that the USGA held an apologetic press conference, Johnson's camp acknowledged the conditions.
"Is that an apology?" he tweeted. That got him within one shot of Koepka, who still had 11 holes to play. We felt that it would work well given the forecast we had, but I think that now we would say that parts of this test of golf simply were too tough.
"If they'd have shot 4-under this afternoon, it would probably have been the best round of golf anybody's ever seen", Koepka pointed out, referring to Finau and Berger's morning rounds. Matt Parziale earned a spot in the tournament by winning the Mid-Amateur, and then became the first mid-am to make the cut in 15 years. The most recent person to win both of the first two majors of the year was Jordan Spieth in 2015, but he couldn't get it done at the British Open.
He never left, meaning by Sunday's final round he'd been stomping around the grounds for two full weeks.
Dustin Johnson entered the U.S. Open as a 9-to-1 favorite and moved all the way down to 2-to-3 odds entering the weekend after grabbing a four-shot lead through 36 holes. His 122-yard approach settled just three feet from the pin, giving him a smooth shot at a birdie. Johnson headed up to the putting green, where he stayed for almost half an hour, quietly hitting balls as the sun set.
Yesterday Mickelson made par on the 13th for a six-shot improvement from round three before raising his arms in mock triumph. "Whether I do or not at the end of today, I'm really happy with where I'm at". He's been just kind of lingering all week with a 73-72-71 start.
Koepka and Johnson worked out together before each of the last two rounds, but Koepka said they spoke little during competition for the title.
And with a cool head and a hot putter, he didn't give anyone a chance down the stretch Sunday at Shinnecock Hills. Tommy Fleetwood is in the clubhouse with a 7-under 63, tying the record for the lowest round at a U.S. Open.
Sweden's Henrik Stenson, who played alongside Rose and actually went to the lead whenhe birdied the fifth, also was not about to fire both barrells at the USGA.
"It's something you might see at your club with your mates".
Officials watered the greens overnight and on Sunday morning in an effort to avoid a repeat of Saturday's fiasco. Two holes later, after another drive into grass so thick he wasn't sure he could get it out, Koepka rolled in an 8-footer for another par save. Mickelson's wife said that he offered to withdraw after what happened in round three.
William McGirt: "I refuse to watch it because I know what the outcome will be". I don't three-putt any today, then I'm right there at even par for the tournament.
With the two-stroke penalty Mickelson took a sextuple bogey 10.
Asked about the putting surface on No. 15, Koepka said: "I don't have anything nice to say about that green and the pin location, so I'm just not going to say it". Watching the ball trickle past the hole and headed off the green, the veteran literally trotted up to his ball and hit it back toward the cup while it was still in motion.
