Brooks Koepka gives ball to adorable fan, goes on roll at U.S. Open  1 Month ago

Source:   USA Today  

Brooks Koepka came up short in his bid for a third consecutive U.S. Open championship at Pebble Beach Golf Links on Sunday.

He made an early charge, though, and got into contention with a little Karma on his side.

Koepka began the day four shots behind Gary Woodland before he promptly birdied the first hole to move to 8-under on the tournament.

But more important for Koepka's chances for a three-peat was to make sure he avoided bogeys.

That's what happened with a nifty par save on the massive par-4, 523-yard second hole.

He launched his tee shot over everything on the right side and landed it in the far second cut, 358 yards away from the tee. His second shot cleared the fairway and landed high-side left. On his third shot, aiming from tall grass on an incline next to the bunker 73 yards out, he dropped his wedge to the green five feet past the hole — like a two-time defending U.S. Open champion often does.

He then softly pushed home his ball for par.

Afterward, the usually stoic and focused Koepka adopted the heart of the nation on Father's Day by giving his ball to an adorable young girl named Layla Friedman, who was with her dad, Gary Friedman, watching it all unfold.

The gesture was class.

The reaction was classic.

Koepka did Karma a solid.

He would soon add birdies at No. 3 and 4 and was 10 under after four holes.
