With his T36 at the Valero Texas Open, Brooks Koepka collected 32.50 non-member FedExCup points.
This pushes his total to 271 non-member FedExCup points, seven short of qualifying for Special Temporary Membership. He needed no worse than a solo 32nd-place finish (worth 39.00 points) at TPC San Antonio to secure it. There was a five-way tied for 31st that rewarded 38.00 points, so Koepka essentially fell two strokes high of clinching STM today. It was his eighth start of the season and final (of seven) via a sponsor exemption. He's allowed 12 plus THE PLAYERS as a non-member without STM, and he can gain entry into events only via open qualifying, top 10s and via special invitations. The latter would include a start at the PGA Championship through its traditional exemption allowing those inside the top 100 in the Official World Golf Ranking. (He started this week slotted 75th.) Worst case, Koepka will crack the field at the Web.com Tour Finals on non-member FedExCup points alone. Mar 30 - 7:14 PM

Brooks Koepka is slated to compete in this week's Valero Texas Open.

Koepka turned in a 3-under-par 34-35=69 in today's final round of the Arnold Palmer Invitational to rise 26 spots into a share of 26th place. The 43.00 non-member FedExCup points he earned boosted his season total to 239. That's 39 short of the minimum requirement to qualify for Special Temporary Membership [STM]. If he doesn't withdraw from the VTO prior to his opening round, it will mark his seventh and final start via a sponsor exemption. (He's made seven starts this season, but his appearance at the Shriners was made possible by his top 10 at the Frys.com Open, so it didn't count against his allotted sponsor exemptions.) Koepka can secure STM at TPC San Antonio with a solo 32nd-place finish that would reward exactly 39 non-member FedExCup points.

Brooks Koepka carded a final-round 3-under-par 34-35=69 in the Arnold Palmer Invitational, improving to 3-under 285 for the tournament.

Koepka is trying to rack up as many FedExCup points as possible in his attempt to gain Special Temporary Membership on the PGA TOUR, so he'll now sit back and hope for carnage in the afternoon. His efforts produced five birdies to just two bogeys, landing 13 GIR and picking up over a stroke with the flat stick. He is in the field for the upcoming Valero Texas Open later this week.

Brooks Koepka picked up a sponsor exemption into this week's The Honda Classic.

Koepka was the last man out of the field at Dove Mountain last week for the WGC-Accenture Match Play Championship, but has a golden opportunity to bank some FedExCup points in an effort to obtain Special Temporary Membership on the PGA TOUR. If that term sounds familiar, it's the status Jordan Spieth had in 2013 until winning the John Deere Classic. With Koepka already owning a T3 at the Frys.com Open, he's well on his way to playing his way onto the PGA TOUR, if not this season then next.

Brooks Koepka carded an even-par 35-36=71 in his opening round of the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open.

Mama said that there'd be days like this. After his magical run at CordeValle, he went 0-for-3 in scrambling at TPC Summerlin today and added a three-putt bogey from 23'8" at the par-4 12th holes. While he offset four birdies with four bogeys, he's fortunate it wasn't worse as his bogey conversion at the par-4 fourth dropped from 10'1". Meanwhile, according to Doug Ferguson on Twitter, Koepka has been given a sponsor exemption into the OHL Classic at Mayakoba. As long as he continues to flash form, the PGA TOUR non-member shouldn't have any problem procuring his full allowance of seven.

Brooks Koepka has been added to the published field of this week's Shriners Hospitals for Children Open.

This is just a formality, but you never know what can happen between the time a golfer commits verbally and when the TOUR recognizes him publicly. Koepka banked $240,000 and 134 non-member FedExCup points for his T3 at CordeValle on Sunday, so he's on his way to achieving Special Temporary Membership. If you're prone to riding momentum, then look no further than this confident, young talent.

Brooks Koepka spent much of the Frys.com Open in the lead, but a final-round 1-over-par 34-38=72 dropped him into a share of third at 14-under 270.

It has been well documented that he was in the field at CordeValle Golf Club on a sponsor exemption, and a win would have made him a fully exempt PGA TOUR member for the remainder of this season and the two following. Meanwhile, a two-way tie for second at worst would have earned him enough money for Special Temporary Membership [STM] on the PGA TOUR, allowing for unlimited sponsor exemptions, unlimited starts and a spot in the Beyond 150 Reshuffle. Had he made the 9'6" putt on the final hole, he would have qualified for STM. As it stands, he is now only exempt into the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open if he chooses to compete. It's likely we haven't heard the last from the young talent this season.

Brooks Koepka leads the Frys.com Open by two strokes through 54 holes after a 4-under-par 33-34=67 in the third round, improving to 15-under 198 for the week.

Koepka grabbed six birdies, but handed back two bogeys on his third tour of CordeValle Golf Club. His 13 GIR were solid, but not at all spectacular given the number of players landing 16 or more. He also gained 1.339 strokes with the putter. That's not the meat of the story. He has zero status on the PGA TOUR, so he's trying to pull a Jordan Spieth and play his way onto the PGA TOUR with a win. Koepka, despite being an American, plays on the Eurpean Tour. Should he win, expect him to focus his efforts on the PGA TOUR. A high finish would leave him facing difficult scheduling decisions on how he would chase a PGA TOUR card.

Brooks Koepka continued his torrid pace in today's second round of the Frys.com Open, signing for a 7-under-par 32-32=64 to post 11-under 131, good for outright possession of the 36-hole clubhouse lead.

Substandard scrambling aside, he's lighting up CordeValle Golf Club this week. After Thursday's seven-birdie performance, Koepka added an eagle (from 12'4" at the par-5 15th hole) and eight birdies during today's walk. Five of his birdies dropped in from outside 13 feet, including runs from 34'7" and 26'10" at Nos. 5 and 8, respectively. At the time he signed his card, he co-led the field in eagles, sat first in birdies and ranked inside the top 10 in both greens hit (29) and strokes gained-putting (just shy of 2.600).

Brooks Koepka carded a 4-under-par 34-33=67 in his opening round of the Frys.com Open.

The legend continues to grow. The three-time Challenge Tour winner in the field at CordeValle on a sponsor exemption went 7-for-14 in birdie opportunities. His only conversion outside 10 feet dropped in from 22'1" at the par-4 fourth hole, but he also whiffed on a par attempt from 47 inches at 17. The PGA TOUR non-member signed his card sitting three strokes off the overnight lead.

Brooks Koepka has played almost exclusively in Europe in 2013, but the American received a sponsor invitation to the Frys.com Open.

Peter Uihlein gets plenty of attention for doing the exact same thing as Koepka, but most people wouldn't realize that the latter is ranked 100th in the Official World Golf Rankings. There's no doubt that he would prefer to do the improbable and win this week at CordeValle so he could play a full PGA TOUR schedule, but his current pace of working his way towards the top 50 seems to be going well.

Brooks Koepka completed 36 holes of International Final Qualifying on the Old and New Courses at Sunningdale in England in 5-under-par 69-65=134 to earn medalist honors and one of the nine berths at stake for The Open Championship.

Koepka offset six bogeys with 11 birdies today. The 23-year-old former standout at Florida State University won for the third time on the Challenge Tour on Sunday, thus becoming automatically exempt on the European Tour for the remainder of the season. Oliver Fisher finished alone in second place at Sunningdale at 4-under 70-65=135. Alvaro Quiros, Grégory Bourdy, Gareth Maybin and Richard McEvoy shared third at 3-under 136. Scott Jamieson and Niclas Fasth tied for seventh at 2-under 137. The final spot went to Tano Goya (1-under 138), who outlasted Ross Fisher, Alejandro Cañizares and David Drysdale in a playoff. Other notables that failed to qualify include: 139--Pablo Larrazábal; Grégory Havret ... 140--Robert Rock; Thomas Levet; Jeev Milkha Singh ... 141--Paul Casey; Tom Lewis ... 142--Michael Campbell; Rhys Davies ... 143--José Maria Olazábal; Paul McGinley ... 144--Peter Uihlein ... 145--Simon Khan ... 155--Nick Dougherty.
