Brooks Koepka holds off Tiger to win US PGA Championship

Brooks Koepka has held off a vintage Tiger Woods charge to win the US PGA Championship and claim his third major championship title.

The big-hitting American fired a four-under-par 66 at Missouri’s Bellerive Country Club to earn a 16-under total and a two-shot win from 14-time major champion Woods (64), with Australia’s Adam Scott (67) third at 13 under.

“Everyone got going around the turn; a lot of roars happening out there. It was good fun to be in it,” said Scott.

“I just missed putts on 14 and 15 and Brooks made them; my momentum was gone and I didn’t play the last two holes very well.”

Koepka claimed his third major in 14 months after successfully defending his breakthrough 2017 US Open victory at Shinnecock Hills this year.
