Brooks Koepka

Brooks Koepka was born in West Palm Beach on May 3, 1990.

Winner of the US Open in 2017 and 2018 and the PGA Championship in 2018 and 2019, he became the first golfer in history to hold two majors simultaneously for two consecutive years. He became world number 1 in the Official World Golf Rankings after obtaining the 2018 CJ Cup, occupying that position in four rounds for a total of forty-seven weeks.

At the US Open 2017 wins his first Major, scoring a -16 and thus equaling Rory McIlroy's tournament record of 2011. In the following year, despite a wrist surgery and the consequent withdrawal from the Masters, he manages to successfully defend the title of the U.S. Open and wins the third Major, the PGA Championship. Thanks to the victory of the CJ Cup he reaches the first position of the world ranking.

In May 2019 he triumphs again at the PGA Championship, a result that allows him to regain the primacy in the ranking, which he then maintained for 38 consecutive weeks. In this year he also won his first competition of the World Golf Championships, the FedEx St. Jude Invitational.

For the second year in a row, he was named PGA America's Player of the Year. Qualified for the 2019 Presidents Cup, he was forced to retire due to a knee injury which also affects him in the 2020 season.

In February 2021 he returned to success at the Waste Management Phoenix Open, where on the last day he came back five strokes behind with a score of 65, 6 strokes under par.
