Wire to wire: FSU’s Koepka wins PGA Championship

All Brooks Koepka does is win majors.

The former Florida State All-American captured his fourth major, repeating as the PGA Championship winner on Sunday afternoon. Koepka shot 63-65-70, taking a seven-shot lead into the final round. He finished with a nerve-wracking 74 on Sunday but still won by two shots over Dustin Johnson.

“This is incredible,” Koepka said in the CBS post-round interview. “I don’t know if I’ve dreamed of this. This is so cool. I’m still in shock right now. This is awesome.”

A native of West Palm Beach, Koepka led from start to finish. He shot 8-under for the four rounds and pumped his fist after making his putt on 18.

Koepka is also a two-time U.S. Open champion. He has won four majors in less than two years.

At FSU from 2009-12, Koepka won three events, including the 2012 Seminole Intercollegiate. He had 19 top-10s and a 71.84-stroke average in his college career.

His coach at FSU, Trey Jones, is proud to see Koepka continue to achieve major success.

“Brooks’ performance was Mike Tyson-like,” Jones said. “No nonsense, bring the fight, play to knock out early and take advantages when you can.”
