J.J. Watt plays Erin Hills one day after the U.S. Open ends

Brooks Koepka won the U.S. Open on Sunday

Houston Texans star and former Wisconsin Badger J.J. Watt played Erin Hills Golf Course on Monday, just one day after Brooks Koepka won the U.S. Open at the course.

Koepka finished with a record-tying score of -16 under at Erin Hills, which equals a total score of 272 over 72 holes, or just 125 shots worse than Watt's self-projected number over 18 holes.

Watt underwent back surgery with a herniated disc last summer, but was able to return by week one. However, he re-injured his back in September, and missed the final 13 games on injured reserve.
