ON WINNING IN JEDDAH:
INDIVIDUAL CHAMPIONSHIP POINTS
2023 – Smash GC captain
2022 – Smash GC captain
2017 U.S. Open – Matched the lowest total posted in the U.S. Open with a 16-under total, winning by four strokes at Erin Hills … Started the final round one stroke behind but birdied his first two holes … Pulled away with three consecutive birdies on the back nine to shoot a 5-under 67 … Said Koepka: “That's probably the most emotion I've ever showed coming down the stretch. I mean, it feels amazing to get my name on this trophy with so many other great names. It's truly an honor.”
2018 U.S. Open – Became just the third player to successfully defend a U.S. Open, joining Ben Hogan (1951) and Curtis Strange (1989) … Shot a final-round 68 to finish at 1 over, winning by one stroke at Shinnecock Hills … His second-round 66 brought him back into the tournament after an opening 75 … Said Koepka: “To be honest with you, probably couldn't have dreamed of it in my wildest dreams. I'm at a loss for words right now, but it's really incredible. I mean, I couldn't be happier. We grinded our tail off this week to come back from 7-over and do what we did. It was pretty special.”
2018 PGA Championship – Won his second major of the year at 16 under, two strokes ahead of Tiger Woods … His aggregate 264 total at Bellerive set a tournament record … Followed his second-round 63 with a 66 to take a two-shot lead entering the final round … Became just the fifth American player to win three majors before the age of 29, joining Woods, Jack Nicklaus, Tom Watson and Jordan Spieth … Said Koepka: “I have a lot of self belief. I knew, even today, when everybody was making that charge, if I just hung in there, made one more shot, one good shot at a time, kept it rolling, I knew I was going to have a chance to kind of separate myself maybe a little bit.”
2019 PGA Championship – Became the first player to successfully defend both the PGA Championship and U.S. Open and the fourth to successfully defend two different majors in a career … Opened with a 7-under 63, followed with a 65 and went wire-to-wire at Bethpage Black … His 8-under total gave him a two-stroke win over Dustin Johnson … Said Koepka: “To be standing here today with four majors, it's mind-blowing.”
