Brooks Koepka took an unorthodox path to reaching the goal of all professional golfers Sunday but the 27-year-old Floridian said he would not change a thing after claiming his first major title.Koepka won the U.S. Open by four shots, closing with a 5-under 67 at Erin Hills to triumph with a record-tying 16-under total, reaching the pinnacle of a professional journey that began five years ago on Europe's secondary Challenge Tour.A tie for fourth at the U.S. Open that same year helped Koepka earn his U.S. PGA Tour card.The fast-moving Koepka captured the 2015 Waste Management Phoenix Open but despite often putting himself in contention, the wins did not continue to flow and from 21 top-10 finishes on the U.S.-based tour, he only had the one victory.
