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.

Brooks Koepka is battling through an ankle injury as he turns his attention toward Baltusrol Golf Club's Lower Course for this week's PGA Championship.

Koepka first suffered the ankle injury during the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational, forcing him to withdraw after 13 holes. After that, he backed out of The Open, and importantly included "After much consideration" in his statement announcing the WD. That hinted that his return was not too far away. Two weeks later, and the status of the ankle is still in doubt. Rex Hoggard of reported on him this week and Koepka was quoted saying, "It’s one of those things I can’t really drive off my right side." On top of that he also said, "Walking is what gets it really tired, but then on top of that there’s a little pain and swelling." Koepka is currently set to give it his all this week as it's a major championship and he's dropped to ninth on the Ryder Cup standings. Gamers should be well aware of the risk involved this week.
Jul 27 - 5:00 PM

Brooks Koepka has withdrawn from next week's Open Championship, citing the same ankle injury that forced him to withdraw from the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational. Colt Knost will take his place in the field.

Koepka alerted his followers on Facebook and then tweeted out a link saying, "After much consideration, I will unfortunately be withdrawing from next week’s Open Championship. I have a torn ligament in my right ankle that requires additional rehab over the next couple of weeks." At the end of his official statement he closed with "I look forward to seeing everyone at Baltusrol." That gives us a timeline to work with, as the PGA Championship takes place in three weeks, starting July 28th. Based on his opening statement of "After much consideration," this injury appears to be on the minor side, and gamers should be ready to pounce when he returns to action.
Jul 9 - 2:16 PM

Brooks Koepka has withdrawn from this week's WGC-Bridgestone Invitational due to an ankle injury. He was 5-over through 13 at the time of the WD.

The Florida State product joins his fellow alum Daniel Berger as first-round WDs this week. Koepka opened with three bogeys and six pars before making the turn. The real damage was done at the par-4 13th hole as he found a fairway bunker off the tee, punched out to 141 yards and then three-putted from 41'11" for double bogey. Koepka entered the week with high expectations as he finished T6 here last year and arrived with three straight top 15s. He will now have a week off to recover before taking on Royal Troon Golf Club at the Open Championship.
Jun 30 - 3:44 PM

Brooks Koepka orchestrated a 2-under-par 32-36=68 in today's final round of the 116th U.S. Open to conclude his fourth appearance on 4-over 284, up 20 places to T17 with play still in progress. UPDATE: With play completed, Koepka finished T13. His third straight top 20 on TOUR, third straight top 20 in the U.S. Open, and fifth straight top 25 in majors.

The 26-year-old began the final round on 6-over (T37) after opening in 75-69-72. He found eight (of 14) fairways, mustered 11 greens in regulation, and totaled just 25 putts, aided by a chip-in birdie-3 at the 11th and a hole-out eagle from 108 yards away at the par-4 10th. Those two par breakers ended a run of 8-under over eight holes, kicking off with four straight birdies on holes 4-7. Unfortunately, Koepka sandwiched his mid-round mastery with bogeys on 1 and 3, and four straight squares on 14-17. For the week, he tallied 57 percent of fairways and greens hit, and totaled just 114 putts for 1.58 average putts/hole.
Jun 19 - 5:20 PM

Brooks Koepka fashioned a 4-under-par 33-33=66 in the final round of the FedEx St. Jude Classic for a 72-hole total of 10-under 270, up three places on the live leaderboard to T2, and good for the clubhouse lead. UPDATE: With play completed, Koepka finished in a three-way T2, three shy of 54-hole leader and eventual champ Daniel Berger.

Save for a three-putt par on the par-5 16th (from 24'8"), the 26-year-old polished off his third appearance in grand style. He trickled-in his fifth birdie of the round from the fringe 18'3" away at the par-4 15th and then nearly holed his second to the par-4 17th, stiffing his approach from 182 yards out to four inches for the kick-in. The FSU product had a chance for one better at the 72nd hole, but missed from 23'2". He began the finale on 6-under in a three-way T5, four shy of 54-hole leader Daniel Berger. Koepka mustered 10 greens in regulation and squared bogeys on holes eight and 12, the latter after airmailing the green with his approach and finding the water.
