A major star in every sense. Achieved back-to-back wins in both the U.S. Open and PGA Championship, and was denied only by Gary Woodland in 2019 in his attempt to become the first player since 1905 to lift three successive U.S. Opens.
Koepka was also a runner-up behind Tiger Woods at the 2019 Masters and in between set a new major record after starting 63-65 at the feared Bethpage Black in the PGA as he returned to world No. 1 with his fourth major victory.
His first success came by four in the 2017 U.S. Open at Erin Hills, with a tournament record-equalling 16 under par total, then at Shinnecock Hills he edged out Tommy Fleetwood by one for a successful defence.
Two months later Koepka claimed his third major at the PGA, holding off a charging Woods with a 264 aggregate that matched Henrik Stenson’s major record set at Royal Troon in 2016.
He was joint 10th in The Open in 2015, tied for sixth two years later and then improved again at Royal Portrush in 2019 when finishing fourth, a week prior to his first World Golf Championships success.
Koepka has two Ryder Cup caps to his name and, after a winless 2020 in which he was hampered by injury, he produced a strong finish to win the Waste Management Phoenix Open in February before finishing as a joint runner-up at May’s PGA Championship.
