The Golf Blog says: Jordan Spieth had just hit his 5th bogey of the day and squandered the lead of the Open Championship for the first time to Matt Kuchar. It took 20 minutes for Jordan to hit his 2nd shot on the 13th hole because he took an unplayable (after he basically shanked his drive) and decided to go backwards to the practice tee to hit his next shot after the penalty. Johnny Miller, commentating, questioned the decision. But Jordan pulled it off and managed to salvage a bogey, after staring a triple bogey in the face.

The bogey sparked something in Jordan as he finally woke up. He proceeded to play looser and freer, and more determined to go out and win the tournament instead of playing not to lose it. Jordan rattled off a birdie, eagle, birdie, birdie, to win the Open Championship by 3 shots. It was perhaps the most amazing rebound in the final holes of a major.

Spieth now has 3 majors in his career.

The Golf Blog says: According to Darren Rovell, Brooks Koepka decided to choose a mix of clubs from Nike, Titleist, Mizuno and TaylorMade after Nike decided to leave the golf equipment market (Koepka played Nike clubs before). Instead of accepting money or an endorsement from a different club manufacturer, Koepka did what every weekend golfer does: assemble a bag of clubs that they prefer to play with. It worked.

The Golf Blog says: In the end, Brooks Koepka, 27 years old, ran away with the US Open, winning by 4 strokes and tying Rory McIlroy’s record low of 16 under at the US Open. Koepka took advantage of the dying winds in the afternoon and carded a 5-under 66. He finished 4 shots better than Hideki Matsuyama and Brian Harman. The win is Koepka’s first major.

The course Erin Hills was hosting its first major tournament. Some criticized the course for not being as challenging as the typical US Open course, where even par is close to the winning score. The course has no trees or water. It has wide fairways, bordered by tall fescue grass. Only Sunday had some wind to deal with.

The Golf Blog says: Tiger Woods issued a statement denying alcohol played a part in his DUI arrest:

“I understand the severity of what I did and I take full responsibility for my actions. I want the public to know that alcohol was not involved. What happened was an unexpected reaction to prescribed medications. I didn’t realize the mix of medications had affected me so strongly.

I would like to apologize with all my heart to my family, friends and the fans. I expect more from myself too. I will do everything in my power to ensure this never happens again. I fully cooperated with law enforcement, and I would like to personally thank the representatives of the Jupiter Police Department and the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s office for their professionalism.”
