Brooks Koepka held off a late charge from Dustin Johnson to capture his fourth major title in just two years, after winning wire-to-wire at the PGA Championship at Bethpage.
Heading into Sunday, Brooks had a record seven-stroke lead which was reduced to just one shot throughout the final round.
Koepka shot a final round of 74 (four over par) at a windy Bethpage Black to finish the tournament on eight under par, defeating Johnson by just two strokes.
As Koepka bogeyed the par-3 14th and Johnson had birdied the 15th, Johnson came within one shot of the lead.
Despite finding a horrible lie on the lip of a fairway bunker on the 18th, Koepka salavaged a miraculous par and took home victory by one single shot.
“I’m just glad we didn’t have to play any more holes, That was a stressful round of golf,” Koepka said on the 18th green.
“I’m still in shock. I don’t know if I dreamed of this, but this is so cool.”
Brooks now moves to Number One in the Official World Golf Rankings and becomes the first player to hold back-to-back titles in two majors at the same time, winning two straight U.S. Open and two consecutive PGA Championships.
Well done also to Dustin Johnson on his solo second place finish on -6, having shot a final round of 69 (-1). Fantastic playing Dustin.
