By the Numbers: 2017 US Open

7: Consecutive first-time winners of Majors. The list includes Jason Day, Danny Willett, Dustin Johnson, Henrik Stenson, Jimmy Walker, Sergio Garcia, and Brooks Koepka, dating back to the 2015 PGA Championship. It’s the first time that’s happened since 2001-2003 when the list was David Duval, Davis Toms, Rich Beem, Mike Weir, Jim Furyk, Ben Curtis, and Shaun Micheel.  It happened nine straight times in 1963-1967.

6: Top 5 finishes at Majors since 2010 for Rickie Fowler. That’s tied with Lee Westwood for the most in that time frame without actually winning one.

272: Brooks Koepka’s final tally, the third-lowest aggregate of the modern era of the US Open, trailing only Rory McIlroy’s 268 and Martin Kaymer’s 271.

67: Koepka’s Sunday finish was the lowest final round by a champion since Tigers Woods in 2000 at Pebble Beach.

140: Rounds below shot by golfers this weekend, the most at the US Open ever, shattering the mark of 124 set at Medinah in 1990.
