Brooks Koepka holds off Tiger Woods to win PGA Championship

ST. LOUIS — Brooks Koepka is what Tiger Woods used to be.

At least in majors.

And Tiger isn’t far from being that old Tiger again.

Koepka won his third major title in his last six starts in the game’s four biggest tournaments, a Tiger-esque stretch that includes victory in the past two playings of the U.S. Open and now the 100th PGA Championship.

Just like Tiger was back in his heyday, Koepka is a physically imposing, supremely confident, ultra-cool presence who dismantles the toughest tracks in golf and the most star-studded fields in the game.

At Bellerive Country Club on a steamy Sunday, Koepka completed his thumping of the course and held off one challenger after another with a final-round, 4-under-par 66 that left him at 16 under and two clear of Woods, three clear of Adam Scott and four clear of Stewart Cink and Jon Rahm.
