Brooks Koepka became the first two-time individual winner in LIV Golf history, having won the LIV Golf Invitational in Orlando by one shot.

With 16 professional wins in eight different countries, Brooks had never won an elite event in his home state of Florida.

Thanks to a second consecutive 6-under (65), Brooks earned the 36-hole lead at Orange County National and entered the final day three strokes ahead.

Under constant pressure from Sebastian Munoz, Brooks had to shoot a final round of 68 (-3), including four birdies, to finish on 15-under par.

It ultimately came down to the final hole of the tournament, where Brooks needed to hole a four foot par putt for victory, which he duly did.

“You look at everything I’ve been through, I’m finally healthy,” Koepka said. “It’s good to play some good golf. I get chills thinking what I’m capable of”. “I’ve been playing good for a few weeks. It was nice to come out this week and play mistake-free pretty much”.

Congratulations, Brooks! It is great to see you earn your second LIV Golf title, as well as leading Team Smash GC to a runner-up finish in the team competition.

Kudos must also go to David Puig and Team Torque who won the team title over Smash GC by one shot on -36.
