Playing out of the third-to-last twosome, past champ and World No. 3 Justin Rose labored to a 3-over-par 37-36=73 in the final round of the 118th U.S. Open, dropping five spots into a two-way T10 on 7-over 287, six in arrears of overnight co-leader and champion Brooks Koepka, who shot 68.

This was the 37-year-old's 13th U.S. Open, sixth top 25 and fourth top 10, first since his win in 2013 (Merion). Overall it was his 57th major, 31st top 25, second straight, and 14th top 10, first since a P2 at last year's Masters. The Bahamas resident improves to 12-for-12 on the season with 10 top 25s, six straight, tying the season lead in current consecutive top 25s with Dustin Johnson. It's his seventh top 10 and third straight. After kicking off in 71-70-73, the Englishman began in solo 5th, one back. He landed 11 (of 14) fairways and 13 greens in regulation, posting 1.846 putts per GIR with 33 total putts. Rose carded two birdie-3s at holes 6 and 12, both from inside of six feet, outbalanced by three squares at 5, 14 and 17 (missed par-saver from 8.7 inches), and double bogey-6 at 4.

Playing out of the third-to-last twosome, World No. 17 Henrik Stenson pieced together a 1-over-par 36-35=71 in the final round of the 118th U.S. Open to finish up on 6-over 286, good for a four-way T6, five adrift of overnight co-leader and champion Brooks Koepka, who shot 68.

This was the 42-year-old's 12th U.S. Open, fifth top 25 and third top 10, first since T4 in 2014. Overall, it was his 49th major, 26th top 25, fourth straight, and 13th top 10, second straight after T5 at this year's Masters. The Orlando resident improves to 9-for-10 on the season with eight top 25s and five top 10s, first since the Masters. After opening with 71-70-74, he began solo 6th and two back. The Swede found 12 (of 14) fairways and 12 greens in regulation, recording 1.750 putts per GIR with 30 total putts. He carded three birdies at 13 (from 21'11"), 14 and 17, outbalanced by four bogeys at 6, 10, 16 and 18. For the week, Stenson totaled one eagle and 10 birdies against 16 bogeys and one double.

Playing out of the final twosome, overnight co-leader and World No. 43 Daniel Berger back-pedaled to a 3-over-par 37-36=73 in the final round of the 118th U.S. Open, falling five places to a season-best T6 on 6-over 286, five back of overnight co-leader and champion Brooks Koepka, who shot 68, and dropping to 1-for-3 when leading/co-leading after 54 holes.

After opening with 76-71 and day-tying-low 66, the 25-year-old co-led with three others and found 12 (of 14) fairways and 11 greens in regulation. He conjured two birdies at holes 5 and 10 (30'3"), overshadowed by five bogeys at 2, 3, 6, 15 and 17. The FSU product posted a commercial 1.909 putts per GIR with 32 total putts, but did knock home two par-savers from between 10 and 16 feet. For the week, he totaled 11 birdies against 15 bogeys and one double. This was Berger's fourth U.S. Open, third cash and first top 25. It was his 12th overall major, second top 25 and second top 10, bettering a T10 at the 2016 Masters. Berger improves to 13-for-16 on the season with eight top 25s and one top 10, brushing aside a pair of T11s.

Overnight co-leader and World No. 38 Tony Finau backed up with a 2-over-par 36-36=72 in the final round of the 118th U.S. Open, falling four spots to solo 5th on 5-over 285, four in arrears of overnight co-leader and champion Brooks Koepka, who shot 68, and drops to 0-for-1 when leading/co-leading after 54 holes.

This is a career best in nine majors for the 28-year-old, previously T10 two times, most recently at this year's Masters. It was his third U.S. Open, second top 25 (T14/2015) and first top 10. Playing out of the final twosome with Daniel Berger (73), it could've been a T3, but walked off with double bogey-6. After kicking off in 75-72 and day-tying-low 66, the Utahan co-led with three others and hit 10 (of 14) fairways and 11 greens in regulation, posting 1.727 putts per GIR with 30 total putts. He circled five birdies at holes 5, 8, 9 (16'2"), 11 (26'11") and 14, outbalanced by five bogeys at 2-4, 7, 12 (3-putt from 26'10"), and the double. For the week, Finau totaled 17 birdies, No. 1 in that stat, versus 14 bogeys and four doubles. He improves to 16-for-19 on the season with 12 top 25s and six top 10s, first individually since the Masters.

Playing out of the penultimate twosome, overnight co-leader and World No. 1 Dustin Johnson birdied his final hole to salvage an even-par 34-36=70 in the final round of the 118th U.S. Open to finish up on 3-over 283, dipping two spots to solo 3rd, two shy of tying competitor and champion Brooks Koepka, who shot 68.

The 33-year-old, who takes over the top spot in the FedExCup standings, was looking to become the first player ever to win a TOUR event and the U.S. Open the following week. He gave it a good run, leading or co-leading after each of the first three rounds. After opening in 69-67-77, the Coastal Carolina product co-led with three others, including Koepka. He hit 12 (of 14) fairways and pelted 16 greens in regulation, posting a dismal 2.000 putts per GIR with 35 total putts. Johnson circled four birdies at holes 5, 8, 15 and 18 (from 12'11"), cancelled by four squares at 7, 11 (3-putt from 33'8"), 14 (3-putt from 72'9") and 17 (3-putt from 61'7"). For the week, he totaled 13 birdies against 14 bogeys and one double. This was Johnson's 11th U.S. Open, sixth top 25 and fifth top 10, first since his win in 2016. Overall, it was his 36th major, 20th top 25, three straight, and 15th top 10, second straight after T10 at this year's Masters.

World No. 13 Patrick Reed carded a 2-under-par 31-37=68 in the final round of the 118th U.S. Open for a four-day tally of 4-over 284, up three spots to solo 4th, three adrift of overnight co-leader and eventual champ Brooks Koepka.

Looking to become just the seventh player to win the Masters and the U.S. Open in the same year, the 27-year-old needed birdie on 18 to match clubhouse leader Tommy Fleetwood on 2-over, but 3-jacked from 36 feet for bogey. Other than his final place on the board, it didn't matter as Koepka shot 67. After kicking off with 73-72-71, the 27-year-old began T7, three back. He found 10 (of 14) fairways and 15 greens in regulation, posting 1.67 average putts with 30 total putts. The Texan went out in 4-under, outpacing bogey-5 at 9 (3-putt from 35'10") with five birdies at 1-3, 5 (from 18'10") and 7, but came home in 2-over, outbalancing birdie-3 at 15 with three squares at 11, 12 and 18. For the week, he totaled 16 birdies against 20 bogeys. This was Reed's fifth U.S. Open, third top 25 and first top 10 (T13/2017). It's his ninth top 25 in 19 majors, third top 10, third straight, and third straight top 5.

Overnight co-leader and World No. 9 Brooks Koepka, a pre-tourney 25/1 outright, enjoyed a 2-under-par 33-35=68 in the final round of the 118th U.S. Open Championship for a 72-hole aggregate of 1-over 281, good for a one-shot win over Tommy Fleetwood, his third PGA TOUR title in 95 events (94 pro), and his second straight U.S. Open victory, joining his come-from-behind, four-shot win last year at Erin Hills in Wisconsin.

This was the 28-year-old's 18th overall major, 13th top 25, 11th straight, seventh top 10 and second win. It was his sixth U.S. Open, fifth top 25, fifth straight, and third top 10, becoming just the seventh player in history to win back-to-back U.S. Opens, first since Curtis Strange in 1988-89. The FSU product improves to 7-for-8 on the season with four top 25s and three top 10s, bettering a pair of runner-up finishes. After kicking off with 75-66-72, he co-led with three others, including playing competitor Dustin Johnson. The Floridian hit nine (of 14) fairways and 12 greens in regulation, posting 1.56 average putts with 28 total putts. He squared three bogeys at holes 6, 11 and 18, camouflaged by five birdies at 3 (from 20'7"), 4, 5, 10 and 16. Koepka also saved par at 14 from 8'4" and saved bogey at 11 from 12'6". For the week, he tallied 14 birdies versus 11 bogeys and two doubles.

World No. 23 Tyrrell Hatton handed in a 1-under-par 35-34=69 after the final round of the 118th U.S. Open to conclude his second appearance (2017/CUT) on 6-over 286, up two places to T8 with play still in progress. UPDATE: With play completed, Hatton finished T6, five back of overnight co-leader and champion Brooks Koepka.

After opening with 75-70-72, the first-time member though not a rookie began T10 on 7-over, four back. He found 12 (of 14) fairways and 13 greens in regulation, posting 1.67 average putts with 30 total putts. The 26-year-old squared two bogeys at holes 5 and 6, slightly outpaced by three circles at 3, 8 and 9, and ended with nine straight pars. This was his 13th overall major, fourth top 25 and third top 10, first since T10 at the 2016 PGA. His best is T5 at the 2016 Open Championship (Royal Troon). For the week, the Englishman totaled 11 birdies against 13 bogeys and two doubles. It's his fourth top 25 of the season in 10 events and third top 10, first since a T9 at the WGC-Match Play.
