KOEPKA RISES TO WORLD NO.2
Brooks Koepka held off the challenges of a resurgent Tiger Woods and Adam Scott to win his second Major of the season at the US PGA Championship.
The two-time defending US Open champion entered day four with a two-shot lead and that was how he ended it but that did not tell the story of a dramatic afternoon at Bellerive Country Club.
Koepka was caught by defending champion Justin Thomas on the front nine and Australian Scott on the way home but kept his cool to record birdies on the 15th and 16th and sign for a 66 to get to 16 under.
JC Ritchie carded a final-round level-par 72 to edge clear of what was looking like a three-way tie between himself, Toto Thimba and Alex Haindl to win the Sun Carnival City Challenge at Ebotse Links, moving to a career best of World No.206.
