Brooks Koepka Player Profile And What's In The Bag

By: | Mon 03 Apr 2023

Article Updated - May 2024

Brooks Koepka hit form at just the right time, winning LIV Golf’s Singapore tournament just two weeks ahead of his defence of the PGA Championship

He shot a three-under 68 to finish at 15-under for a two-stroke victory over Cameron Smith and Marc Leishman, in the process becoming the first player in LIV Golf history to win four individual tournament titles. He’ll head into the PGA Championship at Valhalla feeling confident about his chances to win a sixth career major. "It’s all starting to come around," said Koepka, who became the first active LIV Golf player to win a major with his victory last year at Oak Hill. "I like the way things are trending."

Koepka started the day with a three-shot lead, but a variety of challengers closed the gap throughout the round. Koepka never gave up the lead, though, and he bounced back from his only bogey - a three-putt at the ninth - with a birdie.  

A late Leishman birdie moved the Aussie within a shot, but a bogey on his final hole gave Koepka a two-shot lead going into the par-5 18th, and he played conservative to avoid the water on the finishing hole.

"I felt the heat, but it was mainly because of how hot it was," Koepka said. "Just played very consistent, missed it in the right spots. When you're playing with a lead, you do that. You don't have to force anything."

Player Profile

Koepka was born in Jupiter, Florida on May 3, 1990. He turned professional in 2012. 

In October 2018, he became world number one, a position he held for 47 weeks after winning the 2018 CJ Cup. 

He won the US Open in 2017 and 2018, becoming the first golfer in history to hold back-to-back titles in two majors simultaneously. He started his career on the European Challenge Tour and DP World Tour and played college golf at Florida State University.

Koepka claimed his first major at the US Open in 2017 at Erin Hills and successfully defended his title the following year at Shinnecock Hills to become the first man to successfully defend the US Open since Curtis Strange in 1988 and 1989.

He won his third major at the 2018 PGA Championship at Bellerive, shooting a major-championship-record-tying 264 over 72 holes. His 2018 victories in the US Open and the PGA Championship were the first instance of that double since Tiger Woods in 2000.  He won his fourth major at the 2019 PGA Championship at Bethpage Black.

His younger bother, Chase, is also a professional golfer. Koepka represented the USA at the Ryder Cup in 2016, 2018, 2021 and 2023.

In the first series of Full Swing, Koepka, who was struggling with injury and a lack of fitness, said that he was struggling to compete with the world’s best golfers. He also admitted that he struggled to focus on what his partner was saying to him because he was so obsessed with getting his swing right.

After missing the cut at the 2022 Masters he admitted that he tried to break his car window with his fist.

He began The Masters in 2023 in 118th place in the world rankings but finished joint second and rose to 39th. His victory at the PGA Championship in 2023 took him to 13th in the rankings. He is now 37th.
