With a bogey-free, 7-under-par 31-34=65 in his final round of the Turkish Airlines Open at The Montgomerie Maxx Royal in Antalya, Brooks Koepka emerged with a one-stroke victory over Ian Poulter, his first on the European Tour.
Koepka started the day two shots off the 54-hole lead of Australia's Wade Ormsby. The American then poured in five birdies by the 10th hole before adding an eight-foot eagle conversion at the par-5 13th. He had to climb over Poulter, who began the day one swing back. The Brit carded a bogey-free, 5-under 31-36=67, but just got beat. Ormsby closed with 71 to finish in a four-way T4 four strokes off Koepka's pace. "It's a special week obviously, these four events and The Race to Dubai are ones you prepare for all year, and to win one of them is very special," said the champ, who posted 17-under 271. "I feel like I've been playing really well. I've been knocking on the door, and these last maybe two, three months, I've been very close over here and in the States. ... And I've learned something every time, and used that today. I was very relaxed, very calm today, and it showed I guess." He's now exempt into the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational. Nov 16 - 1:22 PM

Brooks Koepka rallied to post a 3-under-par 34-34=68 in the final round of the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open and secures a top-five finish at 15-under 269.

Koepka was largely an afterthought, trading a 14-foot birdie on the par-4 second hole for a bogey on the par-3 14th. His last four holes featured three birdies and a par for the ultimate backdoor finish. Coming on the heels of a T8 at the Open last week, his form remains among the best on the PGA TOUR and he is a threat every week he tees it up.

Brooks Koepka crafted a 7-under-par 30-34=64 in the third round of the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open.

It isn't often a guy can record two eagles in the same round, but that is exactly what happened for Koepka at TPC Summerlin on Saturday. His first came from 35 inches on the par-5 ninth hole, while his second occurred after driving the green on the par-4 15th and converting a 14'11" eagle putt. Of his five birdies, only his 20'1" effort on the par-4 seventh was of note. The Florida State product's round wasn't perfect, as he surrendered a pair of bogeys. He enters the final round at 12-under 201 and is in search of his first PGA TOUR win.

Brooks Koepka could only muster an even-par 37-35=72 in the final round of the Open but it was good enough to share eighth place at 10-under 278.

Koepka was considered a contender when the round began, but made too many mistakes at Silverado Resort and Spa’s North Course in the finale. The good news is, he was able to offset each of his four bogeys with birdies. Several of those birdies were of note, including a 10'8" effort at the par-4 12th and a 22'2" bomb at the par-5 16th. He struggled with the ball-striking on Sunday, splitting just half of the 14 fairways and landing half of the GIR. He remains on the list of young players expected to produce a breakthrough win at some point during the 2014-15 season.
Oct 12 - 8:19 PM

Brooks Koepka birdied his last three holes in the third round of the Open to shoot 5-under-par 33-34=67 and join Matt Kuchar in the clubhouse lead at 11-under 205.

Koepka circled six birdies on his lap around Silverado Resort and Spa’s North Course, with a 13'2" effort on the par-5 fifth and a 21'3" dagger on the par-5 18th serving as the obvious highlights. He also drove the par-4 17th green and settled for a two-putt birdie. While Koepka has never won on the PGA TOUR, this is the second time in as many tries at the Open that he's mounted a serious charge. He held the lead on the back nine in last season's finale. He will now wait to see if he ends the day atop the leaderboard.
Oct 11 - 7:31 PM

Brooks Koepka added a 2-under-par 35-35=70 in his second round of the Open to post 6-under 138 at the break, four strokes in arrears of the 36-hole clubhouse lead.

Koepka didn't waver in asmuch as he maintained forward progress. He landed 15 greens in regulation and converted three times, but his longest ride of the day measured just 6'9" for birdie at the par-3 15th. He also missed a pair of birdie tries inside nine feet and limited the negative to a lone bogey at the par-3 seventh where he found a greenside bunker off the tee, but there are no complaints as he enters the weekend. Koepka is already fulfilling the kind of promise and potential that gamers expected in the season lid-lifter.
Oct 10 - 3:58 PM

Brooks Koepka twirled a 4-under-par 33-35=68 in his opening round of the Open.

Every season, there are intriguing choices and budding stars. Koepka checks both of those boxes, but he possesses the unique distinction of being a rare American to forego traditional qualifying to earn his PGA TOUR card. He didn't disappoint in his first round with one, sandwiching a double bogey-6 at the 12th hole with six birdies. His longest conversions measured 21'1" at the par-4 13th hole and 10'1" at the par-3 15th. Overall, Koepka, split 10 (of 14) fairways and hit 15 greens in regulation before signing his card placed two strokes adrift of the clubhouse co-leaders.
Oct 9 - 9:18 PM

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.
Oct 1 - 1:55 AM

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.
Aug 9 - 1:24 PM

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.
Jul 2 - 3:39 PM

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.
Jun 19 - 7:18 PM

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.
Jun 16 - 11:57 AM

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.
