Brooks Koepka accepted PGA TOUR membership for 2014-15.
He's the only American of the four non-members whose FedExCup points would have ranked inside the top 125 among members. Koepka totaled 589 in 16 starts; it would have sat 93rd overall. The 24-year-old from Florida went 12-for-16 on the PGA TOUR last season with a pair of top fives, including a T4 at the U.S. Open. He's the first from the U.S. to forego Q School or the Tour Finals and wrangle fully exempt status since Bud Cauley in 2011. Koepka belongs on all rosters. In the meantime, he'll wrap up his season on the European Tour where he's currently 35th in the Race to Dubai. He's competing in this week's Alfred Dunhill Links Championship in Scotland.

Brooks Koepka lit up Sedgefield CC for a 6-under-par 31-33=64 in the final round of the Wyndham Championship and is the first to post 7-under 273.

Koepka drained two birdies and an eagle on the outward nine, and then added four more birdies to just two bogeys on the back. His first highlight came early, chipping in for birdie from the fairway on the opening hole. After a mid-ranged birdie on the par-4 sixth, he added a second birdie from off the green on the par-4 11th. Though he has earned enough non-member FedExCup points to crack the top 125 and be fully exempt for 2014-15 on the PGA TOUR, he would only have been eligible for the Playoffs with a win this week.

Brooks Koepka lit up Valhalla Golf Club to the tune of a 5-under-par 32-34=66 in the third round of the PGA Championship and joins Marc Warren at 5-under 208.

Koepka was aggressive on the rain-softened greens, landing 12 of them in regulation and converting nine birdie opportunities. While seven of red numbers fell from inside 10 feet, highlighted by a nine-inch birdie on the par-4 opening hole, his putter produced birdies from 18'3" on the par-3 14th and 16'2" on the par-4 16th. The Florida State University product has never won a PGA TOUR event, so it would be quite the story if his first came in a major championship. He will only have that chance if he gets a little help from the top of the leaderboard, coupled with another hot round on Sunday.

Brooks Koepka wrangled seven birdies in his opening round of The Open Championship en route to a 4-under-par 33-35=68, good for a share of the clubhouse lead.

Koepka tied for fourth at the U.S. Open, but he missed the cut in his Open debut at Muirfield last year and he missed the cut on the European Tour in each of the last two weeks. Today he reminded us that he's one of the emerging talents in the world. Three of his birdies dropped in on par 5s. Overall he split eight (of 14) fairways and hit 14 greens in regulation at Royal Liverpool. The 24-year-old from Florida squared a double bogey at the par-4 second hole and a bogey-5 at 14.

The R&A announced today that 10 golfers have been added to the field of The Open Championship via the latest Official World Golf Ranking.

The OWGR serves as the alternate list for the season's third major. Figuring in early withdrawals (e.g. Tom Lehman) and after all of the recent exemptions reserved for various qualifiers were distributed, 10 tee times remained available. The recipients in order of OWGR: Kevin Stadler (62nd); J.B. Holmes (63rd); K.J. Choi (66th); Erik Compton (72nd); Charles Howell III (73rd); Brooks Koepka (74th); Chesson Hadley (76th); Freddie Jacobson (79th); Anirban Lahiri (81st); Scott Stallings (82nd). This is probably what the R&A wanted when it overhauled its worldwide qualifying process for The Open. It wasn't long ago that the automatic qualifiers would exceed the preferred 156 for the field and withdrawals weren't replaced because of the surplus. This time around, the next 10 golfers in the OWGR are already planning a trip despite failing to automatically qualify.

Brooks Koepka shot a 5-under-par 34-31=65 in his opening round of the Travelers Championship, finishing three strokes off the overnight lead.

He is on some kind of tear. He's also quieting all of the critics that gripe that there isn't enough playing time for PGA TOUR members via the Tour Finals since he's simply outplaying them as a non-member. Koepka went 6-for-15 in birdie chances today, including a 22-footer at the par-5 sixth hole. His only blemish was a bogey-5 at No. 7. As long as he's available in your game, you might as well snatch him up and ride the wave. Just remember that unless he wins a PGA TOUR event, he's ineligible for the FedExCup Playoffs. He's also comfortably inside the bubble for the Race to Dubai, so at some point he could feel the tug of chasing that bounty.

Brooks Koepka has been added to the published field of this week's Travelers Championship.

Koepka was the first alternate when the field was released on Friday afternoon, and there were three withdrawals this morning, but he locked up a berth with a top 10 at the U.S. Open (T4). He'll be making his debut at TPC River Highlands. Suffice it to say that he's here to stay for the time being and probably longer. The last two weeks served as a potential guide for his short-range scheduling. He came through with flying colors, sparking the fortnight with a T19 in Memphis. Koepka would rank 82nd in FedExCup points among members and 80th in earnings, so he's all but shored fully exempt status for 2014-15. Meanwhile, it wouldn't be a surprise to see him feel the tug of the European Tour's Race to Dubai in which he's ranked 40th. Since he's not eligible for the FedExCup Playoffs, he might as well continue to chase that pot of gold.

Brooks Koepka battled for a 1-over-par 35-36=71 in the final round of the U.S. Open to end the week tied for fourth at 1-over 281.

The fruits of labor are everywhere for Koepka. For starters, he punched his ticket to the 2015 Masters for finishing inside the top four today. He'll also be at Chambers Bay for the 2015 U.S. Open by finishing inside the top 10. And once the regular season is in the books at the conclusion of the Wyndham Championship, he's a certain lock to secure his 2014-15 PGA TOUR card via non-members earnings and non-member FedExCup points (although he needs just one conduit to secure membership for 2014-15). The other top 10s to secure exemptions in next year's U.S. Open are: Winner--Martin Kaymer ... T2--Erik Compton; Rickie Fowler ... T4--Keegan Bradley, Jason Day, Dustin Johnson, Henrik Stenson ... T9--Adam Scott; Brandt Snedeker; Jimmy Walker.

Brooks Koepka battled to salvage a 2-over-par 37-35=72 in the third round of the U.S. Open, dropping to even-par 210 for the tournament.

Koepka stumbled out of the gates, squaring three bogeys on his first 12 holes. He would right the ship late, circling a birdie at the par-4 14th and ending his day by snaking in a birdie at the par-4 18th while mixing in a bogey at the par-3 15th. Considering the stage in which he resided, it was a strong effort to remain inside the top 10 and not panic. He split 11 (of 14) fairways and found 11 GIR. It will take a low one on Sunday to have a shot at a win, but a top 10 would be a nice feather in his cap.
Jun 14 - 7:24 PM

Brooks Koepka spun a 2-under-par 35-33=68 in his second round of the U.S. Open to post 2-under 138 at the midpoint, good for very early possession of the 36-hole clubhouse lead.

With Martin Kaymer running away from the field, Koepka's position will not hold, but it's impressive nonetheless. The American went off in the third group off the 10th tee and circled a birdie at the par-5 opening hole. He'd add four birdies and square three bogeys the rest of the way. Koepka has been hovering somewhat comfortably inside the bubble to finish inside the top 125 with non-member FedExCup points -- he'd sit 107th at the moment -- but he can clinch his 2014-15 PGA TOUR card with a strong finish this weekend. That's always easier said than done in the U.S. Open, especially in one's debut as it is for him, but he's already defied other odds in his pursuit of status.

Following an early fog delay, the FedEx St. Jude Classic almost made it through Saturday with clear skies, but thunderstorms in the area halted the action at 6:49 p.m. CT.

Seventy-one golfers are scheduled to resume at 7:00 a.m. on Sunday. All have completed at least six holes in the third round. Brooks Koepka was in the first threesome off the first tee and managed to put 15 holes in the books before the horn sounded. He was 1-over-par for his round and had just played his second shot on the par-5 16th. The PGA TOUR has already announced that it will not regroup for the final round. While the weather forecast for Sunday looks better than any other day this week, tournament officials don't want to take any unnecessary risks of play spilling over into U.S. Open week on Monday. With lengthy delays on Thursday and Friday, the crew at TPC Southwind has done an excellent job at keeping the greens fast and the course in great shape.
Jun 7 - 8:02 PM

Brooks Koepka carded a 3-under-par 34-33=67 in his opening round of the FedEx St. Jude Classic, finishing one stroke off the clubhouse lead.

He was a long shot to even get into the field, but he pounced on the opportunity today. In what was his first competitive round at TPC Southwind, Koepka hit 14 greens in regulation and offset one bogey with four birdies. The set included conversions from 29'6" and 16'1" at Nos. 10 and 18, respectively. Short of winning, his goal is to accumulate enough non-member FedExCup points to finish the regular season sitting inside the top 125 as compared to members. That would secure his 2014-15 PGA TOUR card and eligibility for next season's Playoffs.
Jun 5 - 6:18 PM

Brooks Koepka has been added to the published field of this week's FedEx St. Jude Classic.

Koepka started the week as the ninth alternate. He gained entry when Justin Hicks withdrew. Koepka has Special Temporary Membership that grants him a spot in the Beyond 150 reshuffle, so he cracked the field at TPC Southwind on merit. He remains ineligible for the FedExCup Playoffs unless he wins a tournament. Koepka hasn't played since securing a berth into the U.S. Open via sectional qualifying in England on May 26. This week's appearance in Memphis will be his first.
Jun 3 - 11:55 AM

Brooks Koepka prepares for his first start at the HP Byron Nelson Championship.

Koepka will officially be labeled a rookie with this start, and now chases all off the possible accolades that could come with it. He tied for 21st at the Zurich Classic of New Orleans, securing Special Temporary Membership after open qualifying. With that behind him, expect big things in the starts to follow.
May 12 - 10:02 PM

The PGA TOUR announced in a release today that Brooks Koepka has accepted Special Temporary Membership for the remainder of the season.

This wasn't a matter of if but when. He secured the option at the Zurich Classic of New Orleans with a T21. While he's now afforded unlimited starts and sponsor exemptions as well as a spot in the Beyond 150 reshuffle, Koepka could be returning to the European Tour in the short-term. When asked about his upcoming schedule on Twitter, he cited starts in Spain (May 15-18), England (May 22-25) and Sweden (May 29-June 1) as likely stops. His agenda is going to boil down to how many sponsor exemptions he can procure in the U.S. While a great story, he doesn't carry the cachet of Jordan Spieth, who parlayed STM into a victory last season. Koepka's realistic goal is to total enough FedExCup points or earnings to finish inside the top 125 in either as a non-member. He'd currently rank 89th in FedExCup points and 100th on the money list.
