Brooks Koepka now has a major tournament championship win on his résumé.
For the final round Sunday of the 117th U.S. Open, Koepka shot a five-under 67, finishing 16-under par. The 16-under par mark tied Nike-sponsored Rory McIlroy’s tournament record.
The 16-under par record isn’t the only thing the two golfers have in common: Koepka also wears Nike on the course.
To earn his first major championship win, Koepka wore the Nike Lunar Command 2 spiked shoe.

Koepka finished ahead of Hideki Matsuyama and Brian Harman, who tied for second with a score of 12-under par.
But Koepka wasn’t the only player to set a record during the tournament. Justin Thomas set a U.S. Open single-round score record on Saturday by shooting nine-under par 63 in the third round. Thomas set the record in the Footjoy FJ Professional Shield Tip Spikeless shoes.
