Keeping score
June 19, 2017


Number of consecutive victories for Americans in the U.S. Open: Brooks Koepka (2017), Dustin Johnson (2016) and Jordan Spieth (2015).


Number of strokes by which Aaron Wise cruised to victory Sunday in the Tour’s Air Capital Classic. Wise, who will turn 21 on Wednesday, led wire-to-wire, opening with consecutive 8-under 62s at Crestview Country Club in Wichita, Kan. He closed with a 2-under 68 for a 21-under 259 total. Beau Hossler (67) finished second at 16-under 264. Wise, the NCAA medalist last year for national-champion Oregon, secured a PGA Tour card for next season.


Number of different winners on the LPGA this season, in as many events, after Brooke Henderson won the Meijer LPGA Classic on Sunday. Henderson closed with a bogey-free 3-under 66 (the par-5 fifth hole was converted to a par 3 for the second consecutive day because of standing water in the fairway) and 21-under 263 total at Blythefield Country Club in Belmont, Mich. Henderson, 19, of Smiths Falls, Ontario, recorded her fourth career victory. Americans Michelle Wie (65) and Lexi Thompson (69) tied for second, two strokes back.
