Brooks Koepka Holds Off Tiger Woods to Win PGA Championship
Woods makes strong push with 64-shot final round to come close to winning 1st major since 2007.
It went down to the last hole of the final round on Sunday, but Brooks Koepka continued his storybook year by winning the 2018 PGA Championship. The 28-year-old also won the US Open in June.
But this time, he had a Tiger on his tail — finishing just two strikes behind. Tiger Woods shot his lowest final round in a major ever with a 64 Sunday at Bellerive Country Club in St. Louis. For Woods, a 14-time major and 4-time PGA champion, it marked a moral victory for a golfing legend who last won a major 11 years ago.
The Wanamaker Trophy is Koepka’s third major, and comes with a purse of $1.98 million.
