Berger, Finau ride early tee time into share of US Open lead

Abused England's Ian Poulter is unhappy with his treatment at the US Open

Playing in the last group, Johnson shot 77, with a bogey on the last hole that cost him sole possession of the lead.

The 28-year-old Floridian triumphed by one shot over England's Tommy Fleetwood on an absorbing afternoon to back up his breakthrough major victory at Erin Hills 12 months ago, having only recently recovered from a wrist injury that had kept him housebound for long periods.

Fleetwood must console himself with a cheque for $1.2m and a share of history. But after almost equalling the best ever round in a major of 62 he was pleased with his day's work. Koepka kissed the Open trophy and praised the people who put the tournament on.

He had a birdie look at the 18th, but his nine-foot birdie putt didn't drop.

"Hell of a job", unusual said to him. Whether it was the high powered winds or the lightning fast speed of the greens, the course in Southampton, New York frustrated PGA golfers.

White House downplays message on Melania Trump’s jacket
Later, she toured a section of the facility where the children have bedrooms and was told they maintain their own rooms. Grisham underscored that message in a tweet with the hashtags #SheCares and #ItsJustAJacket .

"I wanted that crowd to be really loud and memorable but it was still great". I think the fans like that, too.

"Yeah, I think one of the bigger challenges is if you're doing scoreboard watching, you feel like you need to do a lot", Spieth said.

Starting the back nine on moving day with two bogeys, the three-time victor on the US PGA Tour now sits at seven over and seven shots back of the lead.

Curtis Strange, the last player to go back-to-back in this major in 1988 and 1989, watched the entire final round as the Fox Sports reporter on the ground, and they shared a brief hug off the 18th green. He has every excuse in the book - and he's still part of a four-way lead, along with Berger, Finau and defending Open champion Brooks Koepka.

In all, Johnson took 14 more putts over the weekend than Koepka, who leads him with two major victories to one. "We're both competitive. We both know we're trying to beat each other and trying to win a golf tournament, trying to win a major". There is a fine line between humbling the golfers and humiliating them, and Shinnecock may have crossed that line Saturday.

No clear plan yet on how to reunite parents with children
In May, the Trump administration announced all adults attempting to enter the country illegally would be prosecuted . Despite the new executive order, it's unclear when or how those children will be returned to their parents.

"It was a tale of two golf courses, and no doubt, we would admit, well-executed shots were not only not regarded, but were punished", said Mike Davis, the chief executive of the USGA and the man in charge of course setup.

"He was busy grinding his tail off and I was busy grinding mine. It would have been fun to dual it out with him coming down the end, having to make some putts".

Masters champion Patrick Reed flirted with the second leg of the Grand Slam. "I knew it was going to be that much more hard".

The victory - and first prize of $2.16 million - is another chapter in the remarkable tale of a young multi-sport athlete in the USA who moved into golf following a serious vehicle crash and then learned his trade traveling around Europe and beyond on the second-tier Challenge Tour. Reed birdied his first three holes, five of his first eight, and went out in 4-under 31. Anderson won his third straight in 1905.

"It wasn't anything other than the way that I played; the way that I struck the ball, that threw me out".
