Brooks Koepka Holds Off Tiger Woods to Win the P.G.A. Championship

Brooks Koepka has four PGA Tour wins, and three of them are major titles.

On Sunday at the 100th P.G.A. Championship, Koepka could have easily lost his focus. He was being chased by a hard-charging Tiger Woods, who had the full-throated support of the fans crammed like packing peanuts into the 200-acre parcel of property that is Bellerive Country Club. The 28-year-old Koepka also faced pressure from the other player in his final twosome, the 38-year-old Australian Adam Scott, who dueled him down the stretch as if paying homage to the P.G.A. Championship’s earlier incarnation as a match-play event.

But Koepka never wavered, closing with a four-under-par 66 to win his second major tournament of the year and the third of his career. Koepka, the two-time reigning United States Open champion, finished two strokes ahead of Woods, whose 64 equaled the low round of the day.
