Harman rues one that got away

Harman was left struggling to come to terms with his US Open defeat after stumbling on the back nine stretch in his final round battle with Brooks Koepka. The 30-year-old had missed the cut at four straight majors heading into Erin Hills and had little expectation of victory. After beginning the final round with a one-shot lead, the world number 50 moved to the turn without dropping a shot. But his hopes of evaporated with back-to-back bogeys left him with too much ground to make up. "It bites a little bit right now," Harman remarked. "I had a couple get away from me yesterday. I was playing so good and just missed a couple putts. I mean, you've got to tip your cap. He went and won the golf tournament on the back nine."
