Top 10 takeaways from 2018 U.S. Open

Sportsnaut Logo By Michael Dixon, Sportsnaut of Sportsnaut | Slide 1 of 11: Brooks Koepka won the U.S. Open for the second consecutive year.

The 2018 U.S. Open is in the books and it had a very similar feeling to 2017. Brooks Koepka became the first man in 29 years to win consecutive U.S. Opens.

We know that Koepka’s achievement is great. But in reality, it’s one of the most impressive things we’ve seen on a golf course in a long time.

Koepka’s accomplishment deserves all the praise that it will get. Similarly, the USGA deserves every bit of scorn that it will get for what happened at Shinnecock Hills on Saturday. Meanwhile, Phil Mickelson didn’t contend, but he actually provided two of the week’s main talking points.

Several other highly ranked golfers, including Lefty’s old rival Tiger Woods, did not even make the cut. What does that mean for these guys?

These are the biggest takeaways from the week at Shinnecock Hills.
