US Open 2019: Will Brooks Koepka defend his title at Pebble Beach?

Brooks Koepka returns to the US Open as a two-time champion, but can he record more major success this week?

Koepka arrives at Pebble Beach as the first back-to-back US Open winner since Curtis Strange, having followed his four-shot victory at Erin Hills in 2017 with a one-shot triumph at Shinnecock Hills last year.

The 29-year-old registered a fourth major win in eight starts last month with a wire-to-wire victory at the PGA Championship, with now Koepka looking to join the likes of Phil Mickelson and Seve Ballesteros as a five-time major champion.

No player has won three consecutive US Open titles since Willie Anderson achieved the feat from 1903 to 1905, while Peter Thomson was the last player to win the same major three years running when he lifted the Claret Jug in 1954, 1955 and 1956.
