Brooks Koepka is an American professional golfer who plays in the LIV Golf League. He formerly played on the PGA Tour. In October 2018, Koepka became world number one in the Official World Golf Ranking and remained for 47 weeks after winning the 2018 CJ Cup.
He won the U.S. Open in 2017 and 2018, and the PGA Championship in 2018 and 2019, becoming the first golfer in history to hold back-to-back titles in two majors simultaneously. In 2023 Koepka won the PGA Championship for the third time, bringing his total to five majors won within six years. He started his career on the European Challenge Tour and eventually the European Tour. Koepka played college golf at Florida State University.
The first major championship title at the U.S. Open in 2017 at Erin Hills, Wisconsin Koepka successfully defended in 2018 at Shinnecock Hills on Long Island—the first golfer to win consecutive U.S. Opens since Curtis Strange in 1988 and 1989. He won the third major at the 2018 PGA Championship at Bellerive Country Club, shooting a major-championship-record-tying 264 over 72 holes. Koepka's 2018 victories in the U.S. Open and the PGA Championship were the first instance of such a double since 2000 by Tiger Woods. Koepka won his fourth major at the 2019 PGA Championship at Bethpage Black. In 2023, he won his fifth major at the 2023 PGA Championship at Oak Hill Country Club.
