Brooks Koepka’s best US Open quotes

The US Open has been a happy hunting ground for US golfer Brooks Koepka, Planet Sport checks out some of his quotes from the historic tournament.

Brooks Koepka's victory in the 2017 US Open at Erin Hills in Wisconsin sparked an incredible run off success in the Majors.

The following year he won the tournament again, this time at Shinnecock Hills. And, in doing so, he became the first player to defend the US Open since Curtis Strange in 1989.

Koepka would add back-to-back PGA Championships in 2018-2019 to give him four Majors in the blink of an eye.

He made another big run at a third straight US Open at Pebble Beach in 2019 but this time had to settle for second place behind fellow American Gary Woodland.

Nevertheless, Koepka has been the most successful player in the Majors over the last five years.

Planet Sport takes a look at Brooks Koepka's best US Open quotes.

2014 US Open at Pinehurst

"It's tough to kind of prepare for a US Open. It's the hardest golf course you're going to play all year, in my opinion."

2014, after a second-round 68 that eventually helped him finish tied fourth at Pinehurst

"I'm playing well, I just keep grinding it out and hopefully we'll see. Martin (Kaymer) seems to be playing a different golf course. 10-under is incredible. But just take care of myself and I should be fine come Sunday,"

2017, after victory at Erin Hills gave him a first US Open win and first Major title

"I mean, that's probably the most emotion I've ever showed coming down the stretch. I mean, it feels amazing to get my name on this trophy with so many other great names. It's truly an honor. I played really solid from the moment we got here on Monday and all the way through until today."

2017, reflecting on victory at Erin Hills where his 16-under total matched the lowest in tournament history

"That's probably one of the coolest things I've ever experienced and to do it on Father's Day it's pretty neat. I didn't exactly get my dad a card, so this works!"

2017, on why he thrives in Majors

"I love US Opens, I think anytime you test your whole game. You can't make a double bogey in a US Open. It takes two holes to recover from that, where a bogey takes one, it's just simple. You can't make mistakes every shot. I mean there's a double and a triple waiting around every corner, if you just kind of take your mind off of it or just relax for a half second. There's something about majors where I just focus in a lot more."

2018 US Open, comparing Shinnecock to Erin Hills

"The fairways are obviously not as wide, but I think the fairways out here are pretty generous. Like Erin Hills, it's a second shot golf course. That's how I see it. I feel like you've got to position your iron play, put it in the right spots, put it below the hole, things like that. And to be honest with you, if it keeps firming up the way it has over the last two days, it could be a little links style too."

2018, after opening his defense with a 75 which left him tied 46th after round one

"I mean, obviously, it's really tough. The wind's blowing about as hard as it can. The pin locations are pretty tough. I think everybody was just trying to grind it out. You know, it's a US Open."

2018, after jumping 42 spots to tied fourth with a 66 in round two at Shinnecock

"I felt like I played really well. My iron play was pretty good. Putting - the putts were going in. I felt like I hit good putts yesterday. Nothing went in. Where today, they were kind of bouncing in."

2018, after a 2-over 72 puts him in a four-way tie for the lead after 54 holes

"This afternoon was very tough, obviously, with blowing 20 and a lot of crosswinds. I feel really good about the position I'm in. I feel really good. My game's in a good spot. I feel like you got to kind of take it from me, to be honest with you."

2018, after scoring a one-shot victory at Shinnecock

"It's incredible. I looked at all these names a million times, it felt like, last year, just looking at everybody. To have my name on there twice is pretty incredible, and to go back to back is even more extraordinary."

2018, comparing is two US Open wins

"This one's a lot sweeter. To go back to back, I mean, I really can't even put it into words. When you look back at history, it's incredible. It really is. I really can't even put words to it."

2018, on what it takes to win a US Open

"US Open just takes so much discipline. You have got to be a great putter and just kind of let things roll off your back. That is something we do pretty well. We were able to bounce back very well considering whether it be a bogey, a double and just kind of move on. It's a fun week. I enjoy the test. I enjoy being pushed to the limit. I enjoy playing about the toughest in golf you are ever going to play."

2019 US Open, ahead of his three-peat attempt at Pebble Beach

"The setup is really good. The rough is definitely going to be a factor this week, we all know that. It's very, very thick. Very juicy. You've got to put the ball in the fairways. Not many drivers here. I don't need driver that much, maybe four times this week. But you need to put the ball in the fairway. These greens are so small, you can almost put it in the center of every green and have 20 feet, no matter where the flag stick is. It really comes down to who's going to make putts. These are some of the best poa greens that I've seen."

2019, after a 69 put him tied 16th after round one

"I would have liked to have shot a couple more. But considering how I hit it coming in, I'm pretty pleased. 2-under, I didn't shoot myself out of it. I'm right there. I feel like if I get off tomorrow, get off to a good start, I'm right back into it."

2019, after a second 69 moves him to tied sixth at Pebble Beach

"I don't think there's a better place to win the US Open. Pebble, that finishing hole is the greatest hole in golf. It's fun to play. If you have the chance to hoist the trophy here, it's pretty special."

2019, after a 68 moved him to tied third and five behind leader Gary Woodland

"I feel good. I feel like if I can just make a few putts, I feel like I could be right there, right next to Gary (Woodland). And it's been very close. I'm pleased how I'm playing. I'm pleased how I'm striking the ball. And I feel as confident as ever right now."

2019, after finishing runner-up at Pebble Beach

"It doesn't sting. I played great. Nothing I could do. I gave it my all. I give it my all every time and sometimes, like this week - it happened at Augusta - it's not meant to be. I played great. I hit every shot that I wanted to. And sometimes no matter how good your good is it isn't there. It was awesome to come this close to going three in a row. It's incredible. Just wasn't meant to be this week."
