Koepka breaks into world's top 10



US Open champion Brooks Koepka moved into the top 10 of the world golf rankings for the first time on Monday after his victory at Erin Hills over the weekend.

The American jumped 12 places as a result of his four-shot win in the second major championship of the year, that he sealed with a final-round 67 to tie Rory McIlroy's US Open record total of 16 under par.

Hideki Matsuyama is the new world No 2 after he tied for second place, leapfrogging McIlroy and Jason Day who both missed the cut.

Dustin Johnson maintains a healthy lead as the world's best player, despite seeing his title defence in Wisconsin end with a missed cut on Friday.
