SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. (AP) - Brooks Koepka rolled in a 50-foot eagle putt from the fringe on the 15th hole and closed with a 5-under 66 on Sunday to win the Phoenix Open for his first PGA Tour victory.
The victory ended a journey around the world for the 24-year-old Floridian. He went from the Challenge Tour in Europe to a European Tour card to a victory in Turkey. But this was the pinnacle.
Koepka emerged from a wild final hour at the TPC Scottsdale in which five players had a share of the lead at some point. Martin Laird lost a share of the lead with a bogey on the 17th. Hideki Matsuyama ended 44 holes without a bogey with a three-putt on the 14th. Bubba Watson and Ryan Palmer ran out of holes.
