2018 U.S. Open Shinnecock Hills live updates

No player heads into the U.S. Open with more momentum than Dustin Johnson. The top-ranked golfer in the world not only won last week’s St. Jude Classic by four shots over a field filled with major champions but did so by carding an eagle from some 170 yards on the 72nd and final hole.

Johnson regained the No. 1 ranking with that victory, his second this season, overtaking world No. 2 Justin Thomas, and he is seeking his second major championship. Johnson won the 2016 U.S. Open at storied Oakmont Country Club but failed to make the cut last year.

Thomas also is chasing a second major title after winning the PGA Championship last year at Quail Hollow. The current money leader on the PGA Tour claimed his best finish in a U.S. Open last year when he ended in a tie for ninth.

Other Americans squarely in the mix to contend include Jordan Spieth, Rickie Fowler and Brooks Koepka, the reigning U.S. Open champion with a four-stroke victory and record-tying 16 under overall at Erin Hills, a first-time host, in Wisconsin.

Since that triumph, Koepka had been working his way back to full health following a partially torn left patella tendon that forced him to miss four months, including this year’s Masters, to start the season. He also had a streak of eight consecutive top 20 finishes come to an end.

“You go from playing some of the best golf I’ve ever played to probably being at the lowest point professionally that I’ve been,” Koepka said during his Tuesday news conference at Shinnecock Hills. “The lowest point was the fact I gained about 15 pounds. Looking in the mirror wasn’t quite fun.”

Koepka is rounding back into form, however, with a tie for 11th place at the Players Championship and solo second place at the Fort Worth Invitational. He’s ranked No. 9 in the world, two spots behind Fowler, who is widely regarded as the best player without a major championship.

World No. 4 Spieth, meanwhile, won the 2015 U.S. Open at Chambers Bay, beating Johnson and Louis Oosthuizen by one stroke.

Then there’s Tiger Woods, whose tee-to-green game has been on the upswing as the 14-time major winner begins pursuit of his fourth U.S. Open title. The last of his major championships came at the U.S. Open ten years ago, when, playing on a bum leg, Woods outlasted Rocco Mediate in an 18-hole Monday playoff at Torrey Pines.

This is the final year of Woods’s 10-year U.S. Open exemption. He missed the cut at his last U.S. Open in 2015 and finished tied for 17th when the event last was held at Shinnecock Hills in 2004.

Woods, 42, tied for 23rd at the Memorial this season, but putting has been an issue. He’s tied for 89th in strokes gained putting, and Shinnecock is infamous for its unforgiving greens.

“It feels good to be here,” Woods, ranked No. 80 in the world, said during a news conference earlier this week from Southampton, N.Y. “I’ve missed playing the U.S. Open.”
