The 2017 U.S. Open champion, Brooks Koepka, kicked off his week at the PGA Championship with a 3-under-par 32-36=68, giving him a share of the early clubhouse lead with play still in progress.
Koepka was launching missles all day, blasting 11 drives over 300 yards while splitting 10 (of 14) fairways. One of those bonked a marshall right on the head, but he didn't let that scary moment rattle him. That was good for 2.62 strokes gained off-the-tee. His irons were also dialed in as he setup 12 scoring chances from inside 20 feet. The only weakness today was the flat stick, as he converted just three of those 12 chances. Outside of that he also chipped in from 75'7" for birdie at the par-4 third and drained one from 21'6" at the par-5 seventh. Koepka is already floating at the top off the leaderboard but if he can heat up the putter then he'll be tough to catch as the week goes on. Aug 10 - 1:50 PM

World No. 10 Brooks Koepka shot a 3-under-par 33-34=67 in the third round of the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational for a three-day total of 3-under 207, up 14 spots to T11 with play still in progress.

This is the 27-year-old's third Bridgestone after a T6 on debut in 2015 and a WD (ankle) during Round 1 last year, 5-over thru 13 holes. Overall, it's his 10th WGC event with a best of T5 at the 2016 Match Play, with the above-mentioned T6 his best in stroke play. After kicking off in 71-69, the FSU product began T25 on even-par, three short of the overnight top 10. He hit 10 (of 14) fairways and 12 greens in regulation, gaining 1.374 strokes off-the-tee but losing 0.729 around-the-green. The Floridian squared bogeys at Nos. 7 and 18 (failed scrambles), offset by five birdies at 2, 6, 8, 10 and 16, three from between nine and 12, posting 1.583 putts per GIR and 2.086 SG: Putting.

U.S. Open champion Brooks Koepka finished off the 146th Open with a 1-over-par 35-36=71, posting 4-under 276 and ending his week at Royal Birkdale in T6.

That's a pretty impressive way to back up your first major win and continues his reputation as a player to have on board every time he tees it up at this level. The Erin Hills hero now has two top 10s in his last three Open Championships and six top 10s along with a further five top 25s in his last 13 majors. There'll be some disappointment that he didn't make more of a run at the title after his opening 65 but Koepka deserves kudos for being a leaderboard presence all week. Today, he wasn't strong enough from tee to green and piped just 4 (of 14) fairways and hit only half the greens in regulations. That led to bogeys at 1, 7, 13 and 16 but he made birdies at 8, 15 and 17 and had his second best putting performance of the week, needing 27 swishes.

Brooks Koepka didn't have his best stuff at times but still managed a 2-under-par 32-36=68 during round three of The 146th Open, entering the finale with a share of third place on 5-under 205.

The big hitter started the day in a share of third place, and he made no movement either way after signing for his 2-under 68. Koepka started the day with an errant tee shot and errant approach, doing well just to save bogey. He rebounded nicely, picking off a three-hole birdie train at Nos. 3 thru 5, and later adding three more birdies and three more bogeys. He looked stellar at times, but also sloppy at times. Koepka continues to shine in major championships overall, though, entering this week with top 25s in 10 of his last 12 appearances. He will start the final round in a share of third place but six shots behind the leader, Jordan Spieth.

Overnight co-leader Brooks Koepka got shutout on the scoring sheet but still managed a 2-over-par 35-37=72 during the second round of The 146th Open, entering the weekend with a share of third place on 3-under 137.

Koepka breezed through Royal Birkdale in round one, but the breeze fought back today. The big hitter landed 11 greens today (two more than yesterday) but took 10 more swipes with the putter (31 putts in R2). Despite carding zero birdies today, Koepka dropped just two shots, and will enter the weekend inside the top 5 for the third time in his career at a major championship. The latest came at the U.S. Open which he went on to win. With calmer winds forecasted over the weekend, look for Koepka to flip the scoring switch in rounds three and four.
Jul 21 - 3:45 PM

U.S. Open champion Brooks Koepka fired a 5-under-par 33-32=65 during the opening round of The 146th Open, staking a share of the early clubhouse lead alongside Jordan Spieth.

Playing in his first tournament since winning at Erin Hills just over a month ago, Koepka showed zero signs of rust. The big hitter split nine (of 14) fairways en route to nine greens in regulation. Koepka made the turn at 1-under 33 before blitzing the back nine. Most noticeable was a hole-out eagle from the greenside bunker at the par-5 17th. Great scrambling was the name of the game as he went 8-for-9 getting up-and-down today. Koepka is no stranger to fast starts at The Open, styling a 4-under 68 in 2014 to sit T3 after day one (he would go on to finish T67). That week appeared to be a good learning moment for Koepka who has since finished T21 or better in 10 of his last 11 major championship appearances.

Brooks Koepka hoisted the trophy at Erin Hills Golf Club just last month and now he turns his attention toward Royal Birkdale for a showdown at The 146th Open.

Koepka posted 10 major championship finishes of T21 or better before breaking the seal last month. It was certainly easy to see coming, in hindsight. Koepka has been dormant since the big win, so what kind of form Koepka will arrive in is a bit of a mystery. It took three tries for Koepka to solve The Open riddle, but he did manage a T10 in his latest attempt (2015). The Florida State product should be an elite option in all fantasy formats this week, given his stellar track record in major championships, but gamers should also keep their expectations at a reasonable level, given the long layoff since his last start.

Making his fifth U.S. Open appearance, second-round co-leader and World No. 22 Brooks Koepka painted a 5-under-par 33-34=67 in the final round of the 117th U.S. Open to reach 16-under 272, good for a four-shot win over Hideki Matsuyama and Brian Harman, his first major championship title in his 15th major appearance, and matching the U.S. Open scoring record (to par) with 2011 champ Rory McIlroy. UPDATE: Koepka jumps 12 spots to a career-high 10th in the Official World Golf Ranking.

The 27-year-old bags a second PGA TOUR title in 80 career events (79 pro), joining the 2015 Waste Management Phoenix Open (58 starts ago), where he came from three back with 5-under 66 to win by one (also over Matsuyama). This time, he began the final frame T2, one back of Harman after kicking off in 67-70-68. Playing out of the penultimate twosome, the FSU product striped 12 (of 14) fairways and pelted 17 greens in regulation, gaining 4.917 strokes tee-to-green. He silenced a lone bogey-5 at 10 (3-putt from 38'10") with six birdies at 1, 2, 8 and a hat-trick at 14-16. The Floridian's split included three from between nine and 34 feet, highlighted by a 33'11" bomb at 8, and also saved par from 8'9" at 13, the only GIR he missed. He posted 1.750 putts per GIR and 1.937 SG: Putting, taking 31 total putts. This is Koepka's 10th top 25 in majors, eighth straight and fifth top 10, supplanting a previous best of T4 two times, most recently at the 2016 PGA Championship.

Overnight quad-leader and World No. 22 Brooks Koepka authored a 4-under-par 35-33=68 in the third round of the 117th U.S. Open to reach 11-under 205, down one spot into a three-way T2, one short of 54-hole leader Brian Harman.

After kicking off in 67-70, the 27-year-old shared the 36-hole lead, his third career 36-hole lead in his 180th career start, and first in his 15th overall major appearance. Playing out of the penultimate twosome, he found 12 (of 14) fairways and 15 greens in regulation, silencing a lone bogey-5 at three (failed scramble) with five birdies at Nos. 1, 5 (from 18'7"), 12, 14 and 18, circling all four of the par 5s. The Florida State product's five birdies included three, 2-putt birdies at 1, 14 and 18, contributing to 32 total putts. His career best in majors is T4 two times, most recently at the 2016 PGA Championship (Baltusrol).

Brooks Koepka steadied a 2-under-par 38-32=70 during the second round of the 117th U.S. Open Championship, heading into the weekend with a share of the 36-hole clubhouse lead on 7-under 137 alongside Tommy Fleetwood, Brian Harman, and Paul Casey.

Koepka was on cruise control in Round 1 as he fired a 5-under 67. He returned to Erin Hills this afternoon and missed just two (of 14) fairways while landing 14 greens in regulation. The GIR numbers are solid, but he gave himself just three birdie chances from inside 15 feet. That makes his number of putts (31) a lot more manageable, since most of his day was GIR→two-putt→par. Koepka has a stellar track record in major championships (9 top 25s in his last 11 appearances) but this will be the first time holding a lead/co-lead in a major. His two previous 36-hole leads in non-majors both yielded finishes of T3.

Brooks Koepka got off to a quick start at the 117th U.S. Open Championship, styling a 5-under-par 34-33=67 during the opening round, just two strokes off the torrid pace set by Rickie Fowler.

Taking advantage of the wide fairways at Erin Hills Golf Course, Koepka launched 12 (of 14) drives of 300+ yards, missing just one fairway along the way. His iron and wedge play was plenty good as he gave himself seven birdie looks from inside 17 feet. Koepka would convert on five of those chances while also draining a few long-distance birdies from outside 20 feet. The big hitter has slight room for improvement on approach and with the putter, but if he keeps driving it like he did today, he'll be sticking around the top of the leaderboard all week.
Jun 15 - 2:46 PM

Beginning off No. 10 tee, World No. 22 Brooks Koepka fashioned a 4-under-par 32-34=66 in the second round of the FedEx St. Jude Classic to post 5-under 135, up 21 spots on the live leaderboard to T8, four short of 36-hole clubhouse leader Chez Reavie.

The 27-year-old hit 11 (of 14) fairways and 13 greens in regulation, losing 0.503 strokes around-the-green but gaining 2.037 tee-to-green. He squared a lone bogey-5 at 17 (failed sand save), offset by six birdies at holes 16, 18 (from 20'5"), 2, 3 and 5 (13'10"), recording 1.692 putts per GIR, 1.557 SG: Putting, and 27 putts total.
Jun 9 - 1:54 PM

Brooks Koepka catapulted up the leaderboard in round one of the Memorial Tournament, signing for a 3-under-par 33-36=69, five strokes off the co-leaders at the top.

Koepka opened on the 10th tee and whiffed on four birdie looks from inside 14 feet before converting an 18'6" birdie putt at the par-3 16th. His putter didn't really heat up until the par-5 fifth hole where he dialed one in from 22'5" for eagle. Koepka would follow that up with back-to-back birdies with the first one being from 16'8" to offset a few of those short misses from earlier in the round. The big hitter is making his first appearance at Jack's Place since a T52 in his 2015 debut. His 2015 performance was much better than the final leaderboard would indicate as he was inside the top 25 entering the final round before fading with 6-over 78.
Jun 1 - 6:37 PM

Brooks Koepka bobbed and weaved his way toward a 3-under-par 35-32=67 during the opening round of the AT&T Byron Nelson, throwing his name into the mix early on Thursday.

The big hitter started on the back nine and rocketed out of the gates with birdies at 10, 11, and 13. All three were splashed home from inside 15 feet, which was the story of the day. Koepka set up nine birdie looks from inside 15 feet today, seven of those from inside 9 feet. The Florida State product left a few strokes out there as he missed four putts from inside six feet today. Koepka missed the cut here in his 2014 debut but has since returned to finish T16 and runner-up over the last two editions. He is off to another stellar start this week, with plenty of room for improvement, as well.

In four-ball action in the final round of the Zurich Classic of New Orleans, World No. 19 Brooks Koepka and World No. 1460 Chase Koepka styled a 10-under-par 28-34=62 to conclude on 19-under 269, up 14 spots to T5 with play still in progress.

Chase, 23, was making his PGA TOUR debut. The top 5 teams and ties (10 players and ties) total, earn an exemption into next week's Wells Fargo (if not already exempt). Brooks, three years older, was making his 75th career TOUR start. After opening in 69 (alternate shot), 65 (best ball) and 73 (alternate), the duo began on 9-under (T19), 10 adrift of 54-hole leaders Jonas Blixt and Cameron Smith. With lift, clean and place in effect, they began off No. 10 tee and were sleepwalking on 1-over thru six holes, carding five pars and a bogey-6 at 11. Brooks got things rolling with a hat-trick of birdies at 16-18 and extended the run to five straight on holes 1 and 2. Brooks rang up another at 4 with Chase getting on board with birdie-3 at 5. Brooks circled 6 and 8 while Chase pitched in for eagle-3 at seven (from 50'8" away) to complete their scoring.
