SOUTHAMPTON, N.Y. (AP) For a guy who has won all of three PGA Tour events, Brooks Koepka has a golf legacy that already is secure.

That's how it should be for winning back-to-back U.S. Opens.

Koepka became the first man to turn that impressive trick in nearly three decades by handling a Shinnecock Hills course that varied from beastly to benign. His one-stroke victory Sunday over Tommy Fleetwood even topped Koepka's first major victory a year ago at Erin Hills.
