Brooks Koepka had to hang tough to overwhelm a fighting performance from Patrick Reed; the 1-up win earned him a 3-0 group stage record and progress to the knockout stages of the World Golf Championship-Dell Technologies Match Play.
The 26-year-old Florida native was a quarter-finalist 12 months ago and is now just 18 holes from giving himsef a shot at improving on that after seeing off his gutsy foe. In previous rounds Koepka had needed just 13 holes to demolish both Kevin Kisner and Jason Dufner 6&5 so fatigue was never going to be an issue and it needed to be as Reed refused to quit. Koepka opened with a 9’1" birdie to immediately take an advantage and Reed soon conceded the 4th before scragging one back with birdie at No. 5. A Koepka par breaker at 11 and Reed bogey at 8 opened up a 3-hole gap, but Reed came strong at the end of the round, ticking 15 and 16 to draw back the deficit to just one. Koepka held firm to complete the 100% group stage record and confirm a round of 16 contest with Alex Noren. Mar 24 - 4:46 PM

Brooks Koepka cruised to a 6-and-5 throttling of Jason Dufner in round two of the World Golf Championships-Dell Technologies Match Play, giving him a 2-0-0 record after two days of play.

The Florida State product birdied four of his first seven holes in round one. Today, he waited until the par-4 fifth to turn on the scoring machine. From there, he circled birdies at the 5th, 6th, 9th, 10th, and 12th holes. Koepka closed out the match with a bogey at the par-4 13th after both golfers have the water. The 20th seeded golfer arrived out of form but credits an early-week swing change to his early success this week at Austin Country Club. With 12 birdies in 26 holes played so far, Koepka is definitely one to watch for the remainder of the week.

Brooks Koepka handed Kevin Kisner a sound 6-and-5 thumping in round one of the World Golf Championship-Dell Technologies Match Play at Austin Country Club.

Seeded 20 in the field, Koepka burst from the blocks with four red numbers in the first seven, claiming the hole every time as Kisner failed to manage a single tick in that spell. Koepka dropped his birdies from 43’2", 19’6", 3’2" and 38’9" in a stunning early exhibition of putting. Although he followed that brilliance with back-to-back bogeys, Kisner made one of his own so failed to capitalize fully. At the 11th Koepka’s putter was back in action, dropping a par breaker from 16’9" for a win, Kisner handed him 12 on a plate with a bogey, and Koepka sealed the deal – perhaps inevitably – with a 15’6" birdie putt. Kisner (now 1-3 in the event) will take on Patrick Reed in round two, Koepka (now 6-3) will hope to keep the putter hot when he battles Jason Dufner.

Brooks Koepka looks to breakout of a recent slump as he takes his talents to Bay Hill Club and Lodge for this week's Arnold Palmer Invitational.

The big-hitting Floridian arrives on the scene with five straight finishes outside the top 40, including missed cuts at the Farmers, Genesis Open, and Honda Classic. The decline can be traced to his iron play, as he's currently losing 0.671 strokes approaching-the-green per round, a 0.81 decline, year-over-year. The transition from Nike hard goods has not gone smoothly for Koepka, but he's too talented to remain down in the dumps for long. Hipster gamers might want to hop back on the train this week, before the crowd rushes back to Koepka. Of course, there is always the possibility that this slump gets drawn out even longer.

Brooks Koepka hoisted the trophy at the 2015 Waste Management Phoenix Open and returns this week for a chance to duplicate that success in the desert.

It's been a tale of two sides for Koepka at TPC Scottsdale. In his 2015 debut he opened with a measly even-par 71 to find himself T64 after day one. He turned on the rocket boosters from there to finish with rounds of 68→64→66 to snag his first PGA TOUR title. The big hitter from Florida State returned the following year with a strong opening 4-under 67 to position himself T5 after day one. From there he backpedaled with rounds of 72→74→69, fading to T41 by week's end. A bit of a letdown is not uncommon for a golfer attempting to defend their first PGA TOUR win, but Koepka arrives at TPC Scottsdale this year as a strong candidate to contend throughout the week.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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).

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.

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).
