Koepka held a two-shot advantage after 54 holes, then went out on Sunday and overcame two early bogeys along with a vintage Sunday performance by Tiger Woods, to claim victory with a four-day total of 16-under par – the same number he posted in first major at Erin Hills.

The Florida native finished his final day in St. Louis, Missouri with six birdies, two bogeys and 10 pars.

The win earned Koepka $1,980,000 and 600 FedExCup points, which moves him to No. 3 on the money list behind only Justin Thomas and Dustin Johnson.

The 28-year old also picked up 100 Official World Golf Rankings points to move to No. 2, bumping out Thomas.

Woods, meanwhile, was the sentimental favorite and turned back the clock on Sunday, shooting a 64, highlighted by a birdie on the 18th capped off by a patented Tiger fist pump. He finished at 14-under par and took home a check for $1,188,000, along with 330 FedEx points and 60 OWGR points. Don’t look now, but Tiger Woods is No. 26 in the world rankings and is a lock for the Ryder Cup.
