Brooks Koepka sees off Tiger Woods to win US PGA Championship

Latest news

    American Brooks Koepka won his second major of 2018 by seeing off a resurgent Tiger Woods to claim the US PGA Championship on a compelling final day.

    The US Open champion, who led by two shots overnight, shot a four-under 66 to win by two on 16 under par.

    Excitement grew at Bellerive as Woods pushed for a first major since 2008, falling short despite a final-day 64.

    Koepka holed birdies on the 14th and 15th to keep clear of Woods and Adam Scott (67), who finished on 13 under.

    It was 14-time major winner Woods’ lowest final round at either the Masters, US Open, The Open or US PGA.

    However, his efforts were still not enough as Koepka became the first man since Woods in 2000 to win the US Open and US PGA in the same season.

    Koepka, watched by his mother and girlfriend from the side of the 18th green, fought back tears after tapping in a par to set a new 72-hole PGA Championship scoring record of 264.
