Phil Mickelson shocked commentators and fans at the U.S. Open on Saturday after a missed putt on hole 13, when he ran over to the still-rolling ball and jabbed it toward the hole. "He is very talented and believed in himself [at Shinnecock Hills]". "This is incredible. I don't think of could have dreamed of this - going back to back".

I can't say whether he should have been disqualified by the letter of the rules, but he prevented his ball from going into more trouble and that's cheating. And to finally do it, it's much more gratifying the second time.

"I wanted that crowd to be really loud and memorable but it was still great". Just as Erin Hills was previous year, the course seemed ideal for Koepka, whether it was playable or not.

"I've worked with him for the last five years and he's been like that all that time". After his final round he said: "It really, really was testing this week to be honest with you".

"It's nice, I'm not going to lying".

A year after he marched to victory with a 16-under total at Erin Hills, Koepka kept his nerve on the back nine to emerge with a one-over-par total of 281. He missed an eight-foot putt on the 18th hole that would have given him sole possession of the U.S. Open record; instead, he'll share it with five others.

Third-round co-leaders Daniel Berger and Tony Finau had a rough start and are up to 5 over as they approach the turn. It cost him a chance in a playoff.

"He's proven he can win on a classic" course, unusual said.

Koepka, with a performance and a demeanor reminiscent of Retief Goosen winning at Shinnecock Hills in 2004, began the back nine with three pivotal putts - one for birdie, one for bogey, one for par. Nowhere was that more evident than on the par-3 11th.

Koepka pulled a pitching wedge to the left, down the slope and into thick grass. He chopped that up the slope with so much speed that it raced across the green and into the bunker. "Once I made a few birdies, I knew I had a chance to get back in it and show what I could do".

He did well to salvage bogey, sinking a 12-foot putt to stay ahead.

He will be very disappointed that he didn't hole one of those but he has to remember that he did the hard bit - hitting the shots to get those birdie opportunities - and he didn't make bad putts.

Some thought Koepka's US Open triumph at Erin Hills a year ago was an anomaly which came on a non-traditional championship venue where the wide-open fairways were easy pickings for a long hitter like Koepka. Strange, who walked the course with Koepka and Johnson as a broadcaster for Fox Sports, believes Koepka can lengthen his streak.

"We want the U.S. Open to be tough, but we saw some examples late in the day where well-executed shots were not only not being rewarded, but in some cases penalized". But after almost equalling the best ever round in a major of 62 he was pleased with his day's work. "It wasn't great for me, but it was great as a golfer to watch how he did it".

Bogeys on 11 and 14 proved critical and while a birdie on 15 gave faint hopes ... ultimately he would shoot 70 and finish two shots back in third place.

Berger took advantage of his mid-morning tee time with a six-birdie sortie, finishing nearly an hour before halfway leader Dustin Johnson was due to tee off. "He was busy grinding his tail off and I was busy grinding mine. I love the way the course was set up".

Yes, it drove him insane not to play, especially not being able to compete.

Only one of them did.

Defending champion Brooks Koepka and Masters champion Patrick Reed are tied for the top at 1 over.
