U.S. Open 2018: The best photos from Sunday at Shinnecock Hills

June 17, 2018

Sunday at Shinnecock lacked much of the hysteria of the day before, but it still featured its share of fireworks: a closing 63, a run by the reigning Masters champion, and two close friends battling in the day's penultimate group.

Ultimately it was Brooks Koepka who prevailed over a cast of challengers that included Englishman Tommy Fleetwood, pal Dustin Johnson, and recent green jacket winner Patrick Reed to claim his second major championship and become the first back-to-back winner of the U.S. Open since Curtis Strange in 1988-89.

Below, some of our favorite images from final day at the Open.
