Brooks Koepka's journey from European backwaters to triple...

ST. LOUIS - Jim Furyk was mesmerized like everyone else at Bellerive Country Club on Sunday as Tiger Woods made a run up the leaderboard before eventually finishing second to Brooks Koepka at the PGA Championship. While we may not have had the Irish victor we wanted, Ireland does play a major park in Koepka's remarkable story. He's constructed many golf courses that bear his name and he still plays a lot, even with his many responsibilities as the elected leader of the United States. He played his best golf in years, leading to a second-place finish against champion Brooks Koepka.
"He has been a man of steel on the Tour and will have many Victories, including Majors, ahead of him".
Entering the final round with a two shot cushion, he was put under severe pressure by a resurgent Tiger Woods who recorded his lowest ever score on the Sunday of a major.
"It was just a laser", Elliott said.
We heard the roars from all over the course.
An average 8.5 million watched in the US - up from 4.9 million when Justin Thomas secured his first major title past year - the highest figure since 2009 when Woods again finished runner-up. Koepka admitted after the round he heard the roars behind him and he was cold as a cucumber. For the first time in about a decade, I was at the edge of my seat while watching golf.

Despite now holding U.S. citizenship, Elliott maintains his membership of the County Antrim golf course and still frequents the club when his schedule allows. Koepka and Johnson, and Thomas and Fowler played together in the Presidents Cup previous year. He would finish 14 under par and finish behind Brooks Koepka.
This is actually our fifth year anniversary. He overcame drug issues, family drama, and a string of injuries that put his career in jeopardy for the past few years and climbed back to being one of the top golfers in the world. That's what you need to do in a major. A 15-week enforced absence after wrist surgery earlier this year only served to show him just how much he missed competing. "I've been in the fitting, I think, for the last seven years for all the Ryder Cup and Presidents Cup's fittings", Woodland said. He's an incredible chap, a good friend, and obviously a fantastic golfer.
He was then over-looked for the US Walker Cup team - the amateur version of the Ryder Cup - was peeved about that and nearly said "Well, sod everyone" and took off to Europe and played on the Challenge Tour on the European Tour in 2012.
