Brooks Koepka fought off an inspired challenge from Tiger Woods to win the US PGA Championship on Sunday, giving the big-hitting American his second major title this season.
Koepka withstood stifling pressure and sweltering heat as his four-under 66 was good enough for a two-shot victory over Woods, who was chasing his first major title in a decade and came close by returning a 64, his lowest final round in a major.
Koepka, who finished with a 16-under overall score of 264, has now won three majors and became the fifth golfer and first since Woods in 2000 to capture both the US PGA and US Open in the same year.
‘Other than me, my team, everybody was rooting for Tiger,’ said Koepka. ‘It kind of pushes you to step up your game.’
