Koepka wins the 100th PGA Championship

 Koepka takes home the win in the 100th PGA Championship..Tiger Woods makes an incredible comeback!

After yesterday’s incredible final round in which—just as he did three weeks ago—Tiger Woods made another Sunday charge at a major championship shooting a six-under par. It’s safe to say Tiger is back.

With spectators chanting his name, Woods made a spirited run at a 15th major championship but despite shooting his best score ever on a Sunday in a major, 6-under par to finish at 14-under on the tourney he couldn't make up a 4-stroke deficit on the only thing hotter than the weather at Bellerive Country Club in St. Louis—Brooks Koepka.

Koepka shot a 4-under 66 to finish at 16-under par for the tourney, beating Tiger—who finished in second—by two strokes to win the PGA Championship.

That is Koepka’s second major championship this year and third overall.

Koepka now joins an elite group that includes Jack Nicklaus, Ben Hogan and Gene Sarazen as the only people to win the U.S. Open and PGA Championship in the same year.

Oh, and one other person, who was the last to do it in 2000.

Woods himself.

  • Woods posted his second straight top-10 in a major after tying for sixth last month at The Open. Woods' 64 was his lowest score in the final round of a major ever.
  • What might have been: Woods made birdies at the 12th and 13th holes, had a 14-footer for par lip out at the 14th that knocked him 2 strokes back and then fired an approach to just a foot for a birdie at the 15th. He parred No. 16, couldn't birdie the par-5 17th because of a wayward tee shot and rolled in a 19-footer for birdie on No. 18 to put some pressure on Koepka.
