Brooks Koepka arrives at this week's Hero World Challenge fresh off an international victory at the Dunlop Phoenix Tournament.
Koepka posted a 3-1-0 record in his Ryder Cup debut at Hazeltine and since then he's rattled off finishes of T40 at the WGC-HSBC Champions, second place at the Shriners, and a win at the Dunlop Phoenix (Japan Golf Tour). The big-hitting American is playing some inspired golf at the moment and this week's course should cater to his strengths, so there is no reason to expect a letdown. With a five-pack of par 5s on the docket, Koepka should be able to rack up the birdies in bunches and perhaps add an eagle or two along the way. The 26-year-old should be strongly considered in all fantasy formats this week. Nov 28 - 2:16 PM

Brooks Koepka, a pre-tourney co-fave at 18/1 outright, orchestrated a 4-under-par 34-33=67 in today's final round of the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open to finish off his fourth appearance on 18-under 266, good for solo second, two adrift of champion Rod Pampling who shot 65.

The 26-year-old began the final frame in a two-way T2 with Pampling, one shy of 54-hole leader Lucas Glover, who shot 69 and finished solo third. He was chasing his second TOUR title in his 65th career start, joining his maiden win at the 2015 WM Phoenix Open where he came from three back in the final round with a 5-under 66 to win by two. The FSU product, who began the week with a career-low 62, mustered seven (of 14) fairways and hit 15 greens in regulation, posting a pedestrian 1.800 putts per GIR and 0.446 SG: Putting. He squared a lone bogey-4 at the fifth (3-putt from 13'4"), saved par from 16'7" at the 11th, and circled birdies at 2 (from 62'6"), 4, 13, 15 and 16. Koepka, T40 last week at the WGC-HSBC, nets his third career runner-up after posting P2-T2 in back-to-back starts last season.
Nov 6 - 7:49 PM

Brooks Koepka, a pre-tourney co-fave at 18/1 outright, pieced together a 1-under-par 37-33=70 in the third round of the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open to reach the three-quarter mark on 14-under 199, one adrift of 54-hole leader Lucas Glover, who shot 65.

If the 26-year-old were to claim the trophy on Sunday, he would be the first pre-tourney fave/co-fave to win since Jordan Spieth at the 2016 DEAN & DELUCA 22 events ago. He's chasing his second TOUR title in his 65th career start, joining his maiden win at the 2015 WM Phoenix Open where he came from three back in the final round with a 5-under 66 to win by two. The Florida native and resident began R3 in solo second trailing 36-hole leader Rod Pampling by one. Playing out of the final threesome, he was 3-over thru his first six holes, squaring three bogey-5s, including a 3-putt from 6'4" at the par-4 first, but fought his way back to red numbers despite a double bogey-6 at the 17th. Koepka circled six birdies over his final 12 holes, all from inside of 12 feet but still lost 0.541 strokes to the field.
Nov 5 - 8:24 PM

Brooks Koepka picked off a pair of eagles en route to a 4-under-par 34-33=67 during the second round of the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open, positioning himself one stroke off the clubhouse lead on 13-under 129 as daylight dwindles in Las Vegas.

The Florida State product didn't have his best stuff, tee-to-green, but was able to salvage his round with a hot flat stick. It started right away when he drilled a 21-footer for birdie at the par-4 first. He would tack on five more putts from outside 10 feet before the round was over, including a 32'9" eagle bomb at the par-5 16th, his second eagle of the day. Despite missing three putts from inside six feet today, he still managed to gain 2.030 strokes putting. Koepka arrives at the midpoint ranked sixth in strokes gained tee-to-green and second in putting. With a T4 already on his Shriners resume (2015), there is no reason to expect World No. 22 to slow down over the weekend.
Nov 4 - 8:21 PM

Brooks Koepka kicked off the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open with a bogey-free, 9-under-par 30-32=62, placing him two strokes off the early clubhouse leader Rod Pampling.

The Florida State product entered the week fresh off a disappointing T40 in Shanghai, China. There were no jet-lag visible in round one as he split 10 (of 14) fairways and pelted 15 greens in regulation. The biggest asset was his flat stick, though, as he splashed home six putts from outside 16 feet in addition to a 21-foot hole out from the fringe in which he used the putter. The longest conversion was a 39'11" birdie bomb at the par-4 18th. Koepka walked off the course gaining 3.156 strokes putting on the day. The big hitter is making his fourth appearance at TPC Summerlin, with a T4 (2015) being the clear highlight as he missed the cut in his other trips. Today also goes in the books as his new low round on the PGA TOUR, besting the 63 posted in R3 of the 2016 Hyundai Tournament of Champions.
Nov 3 - 3:34 PM

In a contest of Ryder Cup rookies, American Brooks Koepka made easy work of Europe's Danny Willett 5&4 in Sunday Singles at the 41st Ryder Cup, pushing Team USA's lead at the time to USA 12.5 Europe 9.5.

The Euros won three of the first five matches on Sunday but the Americans won five of the last seven (and a halve), including Koepka's thumping of Willett. His 5&4 win was the most lopsided of the 12 singles matches. It started off a bit rocky for the American, missing a four-foot birdie on the 2nd to halve and opening with four straight pars. The duo matched birdie-3s at the 5th, with Koepka parlaying that into a 3-birdie train, winning the 6th and 7th to go 1UP. He added back-to-back birdies at 10 and 11, building the lead to 4UP, with pars on 13 and 14 sufficient to end the festivities. Willett, the reigning Masters champ, did not have a memorable debut for a couple of reasons (see brother's comments), going 0-3-0, while Koepka went 3-1-0. Four of the six Englishman this week earned no points: Willett, Andy Sullivan, Matthew Fitzpatrick and Lee Westwood.
Oct 2 - 7:28 PM

After sitting out the Friday morning foursomes at Hazeltine 2016, Americans Brandt Snedeker and Ryder Cup rookie Brooks Koepka never trailed in defeating Martin Kaymer and Ryder Cup rookie Danny Willett 5&4 in afternoon four-balls, with the current score reading USA 5, Europe 1.

Koepka is the first rookie to record a point in this year's matches, birdieing his first career Ryder Cup hole, the par-4 first, to halve, adding birdies at Nos. 3 and 8 to win those holes. Snedeker's score counted on 10 of the 14 holes played, circling the 2nd, 6th, 10th and 11th, the latter pushing the Americans to a 5UP lead. Rookie Willett didn't get much help from Kaymer, with the former's scores counting for the first nine holes, including a long-range birdie at the par-4 ninth, the only hole the Euros would claim all day. Captain's Pick Kaymer mustered halves at 12 and 14 (with pars) and didn't record a par breaker in the afternoon sessions. He also lost in Friday morning foursomes (4&2), so his fourth Ryder Cup is off to a rocky start.
Sep 30 - 6:25 PM

Debutant Brooks Koepka is in Chaska, Minnesota, for the 41st playing of the Ryder Cup.

The 26-year-old, sixth in automatic qualifying, joins Captain's Pick Ryan Moore as first-time Ryder Cuppers for Team USA. It's also his first Team USA competition after failing to qualify for the 2015 Presidents Cup on points -- and not receiving a Captain's Pick after opening the 2015 FedExCup Playoffs with back-to-back missed cuts at The Barclays and Deutsche Bank. This season, Koepka was eliminated from the Playoffs following the BMW Championship after posting T70-T57-T32 in the first three legs. He completed his third season on TOUR with seven top 10s in 21 starts, including a T5 at the WGC-Dell Match Play with a record of 3-2-0. The Floridian won his Group but was eliminated in the Quarters by eventual champ Jason Day (3&2).
Sep 28 - 8:36 PM

Brooks Koepka cooked up a 4-under-par 34-34=68 during the weather-delayed first round at the BMW Championship.

The 26-year-old splashed 15 greens in regulation to alleviate some pressure from the flat stick. Unfortunately, he still struggled on the greens, including a missed birdie attempt from 4'5" at the par-5 ninth and a missed 4'8" par attempt at the 13th. Those two were prime reasons for Koepka losing 1.516 strokes putting on the round. On the positive side, he splashed home three putts from outside 15 feet including a 15'10" eagle roll at the par-5 11th. The bomber ranked first in the field with 3.938 strokes gained approaching-the-green. If he can maintain that level of play with his irons, he will stay right in the mix, regardless of how well the putter cooperates.
Sep 9 - 9:33 AM

Nike athlete Brooks Koepka carved out a 1-under-par 34-35=69 in the final round of the Travelers Championship to post 10-under 270, down three into a two-way T9, four back of champion Russell Knox.

The 26-year-old began the finale on 9-under (T6), six back of overnight leader Daniel Berger. Playing out of the third-to-last twosome, he bogeyed the second before back-to-back birdies on 7 and 8. At the break, he trailed Berger by three but climbed to within one of the lead with birdies on 11 and 13. The FSU product broke down from there, 3-putting the par-4 16th from 9'7" for double, and squaring the 17th on a failed scramble. He did muster a two-putt birdie on the drivable par-4 15th, missing eagle from 14'6". Koepka landed 15 GIR and posted 1.733 putts per GIR, but crated to -0.912 in SG: Putting after posting a 5.063 mark in R3. It's his seventh top 10 of the season in 18 events, fourth in his last five (WD from the Bridgestone with ankle injury).
Aug 7 - 7:41 PM

Brooks Koepka painted a week-tying-low 6-under-par 34-30=64 in the third round of the Travelers Championship to post 9-under 201, up 21 places to solo third and good for the early 54-hole clubhouse lead. UPDATE: With play completed, Koepka is in a two-way T6, six back of 54-hole leader Daniel Berger, who shot 62.

The 26-year-old's 64 tied the best round of the week thus far with four others and is one off his career mark of 63 at the 2016 HTOC/R3. His previous best at TPC River Highlands was 65 and came in R1 of the 2014 edition in his only other appearance (T51). The World No. 17 began R3 on 3-under (67-70) and T24, but went out in the first threesome off No. 1 after the field was split down the middle, utilizing both tees due to the weather forecast. He bogeyed the par-4 second (failed scramble) but was flawless from there, playing his final 16 holes 7-under. Koepka circled seven on just 12 greens in regulation for a dizzying 1.417 putts per GIR and 5.065 SG: Putting. Five conversions dropped from between nine and 22 feet and he also made five par putts between five and 12 feet.
Aug 6 - 11:54 AM

Brooks Koepka backed up with an even-par 34-36=70 in the final round of the 98th PGA Championship to post 9-under 271, down one spot into a three-way T4, five back of champion Jimmy Walker.

The 26-year-old was making his fourth PGA appearance and eclipses a previous-best T5 last year (Whistling Straits). Overall, it ties his best in 13 major appearances (T4, 2014 U.S. Open). Along with nine others, the Florida native and resident had to play 36 holes on Sunday. He began the final frame on 9-under (T3), two shy of Walker. Playing out of the fourth-to-last twosome, Koepka opened with 10 straight pars before squaring bogey-5 at 11, and outpaced bogey at the par-3 16th with birdies at Nos. 15 and 18 the rest of the way. It's his sixth top 10 of the season in 17 events and third top 5 in his last five starts.
Jul 31 - 8:24 PM

Brooks Koepka smoothed a bogey-free 4-under-par 33-33=66 in the two-day third round of the 98th PGA Championship to post 9-under 201, up three spots to T3, two back of 54-hole leader Jimmy Walker.

The 26-year-old, suiting-up for the first time since T13 six weeks ago at the U.S. Open (ankle), didn't get his third round underway until Sunday. He was one of 10 players on Saturday that only warmed up. The FSU product didn't show any ill effects, splitting nine (of 14) fairways and peppering 15 greens in regulation. He dipped slightly in putts per GIR with 1.733, but is still pacing the field with a cumulative 1.619. Koepka's final round is scheduled to get underway at 2:49 p.m. ET.
Jul 31 - 11:33 AM

Brooks Koepka scattered seven birdies on his card in a second-round 3-under-par 33-34=67 at the 98th PGA Championship and is four shots behind leader Jimmy Walker going into the weekend.

Koepka traded three circles against two squares going out and collected four birdies coming home, giving two more back at 13 and 15. His big move came around the turn when picking up shots at 9, 10 and 11 with birdie putts ranging from 6-8ft. A walk-off par breaker at 18 from 8'3" lifted the American to 5-under 135 which is currently good enough for T6 on the leaderboard. Koepka hit 14 greens in regulation on his afternoon lap of the Lower Course and, so far, his ankle seems to be holding up.
Jul 29 - 7:20 PM

Making his first start in a month, Brooks Koepka opened with a 2-under-par 34-34=68 during round one of the 98th PGA Championship, placing him three strokes back of Jimmy Walker's early lead.

Battling through an ankle injury that's forced him out since round one of the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational, Koepka split eight (of 14) fairways and landed 13 greens in regulation today. Not being able to play full rounds during rehab, it looks like he kept his putter tidy instead, as he splashed home four putts from outside 10 feet today including a 21'8" birdie bomb at the par-4 second. The highlight of the round came two holes prior when he stuck his 218-yard approach to 3'7" for a tap-in eagle at the par-5 18th. This is a great sign for gamers worried about the ankle, however he's not out of the woods yet, as we need to see a full week of action to see how the ankle responds to four consecutive rounds of golf.
