Brooks Koepka’s early career
After wrapping up his college career at Florida State, where he was a three-time All-American, Brooks Koepka packed up his bags and moved to Europe in the summer of 2012. It was there where he started honing his skills as a professional on the Challenge Tour, the second-tier level of professional golf in Europe.
Koepka didn’t wait long to prove he belonged. He won his first tournament just a couple of months after joining the tour. In 2013, he won three different times on the tour and earned a promotion to the European Tour.
In 2014, he was a full member of the European Tour but played in several PGA Tour events through sponsor’s exemptions and open qualifying. In his first U.S. event, Koepka proved to himself and the rest of the Tour he was ready to play in his home country finishing tied for third at the Frys.com Open, an event in which he led two rounds. That same year he also placed fourth at the U.S. Open, which earned him his PGA Tour card and his first Masters invite the following year.
Koepka’s success in majors
Brooks Koepka won his first PGA Tour event in 2015 at the Waste Management Phoenix Open. That win turned out to be his last on the PGA Tour for several years. Despite not winning any tournaments, he played well, including a pair of top-10 finishes at the Open Championship and PGA Championship, respectively.
In 2017, Koepka ended his winless streak in grand style by tying a U.S. Open record and winning his first major championship when he fired a score of 16-under and ran away from the field at Erin Hills in Wisconsin. After undergoing wrist surgery in 2017, which forced him to miss the remainder of the season and part of 2018 including the Masters, Koepka successfully defended his U.S. Open title in 2018 at Shinnecock Hills.
A couple of months later Brooks Koepka captured his third major championship with a victory at the PGA Championship at Bellerive Country Club, outlasting Tiger Woods. He was named the PGA Tour Player of the Year.
A year later, Koepka found himself in familiar territory when he held off Dustin Johnson to defend his PGA Championship at Bethpage Black in New York. The win vaulted Koepka to the top of the Official World Golf Rankings. He also won the 2019 FedEx St. Jude Invitational title and was named the Player of the Year in consecutive seasons.
