Berger, Finau ride early tee time into share of US Open lead

When he gets out front Dustin Johnson is a tough player to catch

Just hit a poor shot, just pulled it, and you can't do that there.

He would actually make five birdies in the opening seven holes and have the galleries in hysterics with his U.S. themed attire and thunderbolt play.

Koepka, who is the great-nephew of the former Pittsburgh Pirates' star infielder Dick Groat, was up-and-down for par on the 17th - a par 3 - as his playing partner, Johnson, missed a 7-foot-10-inch putt there.

Starting the day six shots off the lead, Fleetwood made the ideal start with four birdies in his first seven holes before dropping a shot on the ninth after missing the green with his approach.

Asked if he thought that Tiger Woods, who underwent spinal fusion surgery a year ago, and who didn't make the cut here, was more or less finished, Kernell said, "His swing speed is still faster than anyone's, he's been playing brilliant golf, he definitely could contend again".

The No. 1 player in the world, Johnson was the only one to break par in each of the first two rounds, and after 36 holes he seemed like one of the biggest obstacles to Koepka's chances of a repeat.

"I always felt I could get myself back in it but when you finish you are always going to be just short, but we will see".

The 2016 champion negotiated the back nine in one-over on a day when strong winds and low humidity baked the greens dry and left a couple of them on the verge of being unplayable.

Koepka is now a two-time US Open champion after back-to-back triumphs.

Tony Finau, who played alongside Daniel Berger in the final pairing of the day, finished fifth after making a sloppy double-bogey on 18.

Koepka won with birdies on spacious Erin Hills previous year.

Japan' Hideki Matsuyama and Rickie Fowler turned in the best scores from the morning wave of competitors on Sunday but neither score pushed them into the top-20 as the lead groups began teeing off after the noon hour.

Sure, Finau would have liked to have won the whole thing, and he did enter today tied for the lead.

That pushed him well up the leaderboard and gave him a shot on a vastly different Sunday. Notoriously, Phil Mickelson angrily missed a putt on the green and hit the ball a second time while it was still moving. "Sometimes that's the rub of the green", Finau said. This is the first major championship where I was really in contention. Four under through seven and it was game on. He rallied to a 66 on Friday, and as the course and conditions took hold of this tournament on Saturday afternoon, Koepka was impacted just like the rest of the field.

That cost him more than the record.

The victory - and first prize of $2.16 million - is another chapter in the remarkable tale of a young multi-sport athlete in the United States who moved into golf following a serious vehicle crash and then learned his trade traveling around Europe and beyond on the second-tier Challenge Tour.

Aaron Baddeley was the best-placed Australian in 25th place after a closing 69 that included four birdies.
