Brooks Koepka
Brooks Koepka is looking to become the first player since Rory McIlroy in 2014 to win two consecutive majors. So far, he's off to a magnificent start.

U.S. Open Champion Brooks Koepka is playing in his first major championship this week as a major champion.

The man who triumphed at Erin Hills a month ago is off to a fabulous start at Royal Birkdale as he seeks to make it two consecutive major wins... something that hasn't been done since Jordan Spieth turned the trick at the 2015 Masters and U.S. Open.

Check out this bunker shot that Koepka holed on the par-5 17th for eagle at Birkdale on Thursday to tie clubhouse leader Jordan Spieth at 5 under.



Even cooler is the bunker cam.

Sensational start for Koepka.

Charley Hoffman
After a less than stellar drive to begin the 146th Open Championship at Royal Birkdale on Thursday, Charley Hoffman recovered better than he ever could have reasonably thought.

Charley Hoffman's tee shot on the first hole at Royal Birkdale on Thursday morning was less than ideal.

It sailed right on him and wound up in some of that wispy rough.

It was the kind of spot where you're hoping to exit the green having applied minimal damage to your scorecard.

How's a "2" for minimal damage?

That's precisely what Hoffman did. He holed his second shot on the 435-yard par 4 for an incredible eagle.

Just like that, one hole in, Hoffman is 2 under:

And that was an impressive reaction too... Acting like he's done it before.
