Brooks Koepka managed to hold off the challenge of the World's best golfers to claim the WGC-FedEx St. Jude Invitational on Sunday. The win has surely helped to put to bed the myth that Koepka only 'shows up' for the Major events.
After the win Brooks Koepka's record this year now includes this WGC event win, and a 2019 Major record that reads one win, two runner-up finishes and a T-4 finish.
At the WGC event Brooks Koepka trailed Rory Mcilroy by one stroke heading into the final round. The deficit was quickly erased however, with Koepka having a birdie on the Par-5 third hole, quickly followed by birdies on the fifth and sixth hole. Koepka ended up shooting a final round 65 to finish the tournament three shots clear of the field.
Despite the final round being built up as a showdown between two of the worlds best golfers in Brooks Koepka and Rory Mcilroy, it never lived up to the hype, with Brooks Koepka blowing the field away with his 65 and Rory Mcilroy ending up in a tie for fourth after shooting a final round 71, the only player in the top 10 who failed to break par in the final round.
The WGC win was Brooks Kopeka's third win of the season and when asked about his record this year he said “It’s incredible, yo look at what I’ve done this year, just show consistency, try to take my game I guess to a new level and I’ve done that.”
If only golf was as easy for us as it seems to be for him......
