FSU Coach “Unbelievably” Proud Of Brooks Koepka

Not once did Brooks Koepka look rattled throughout the U.S Open this weekend. Koepka’s power carried him silently to the top at Erin Hills, as he shot all four rounds under par and tied Rory McIlroy for the lowest score to win a U.S Open at 16-under.

Koepka also became the fourth Florida State player to win a Major, joining Paul Azinger (PGA ‘93), Jeff Sluman (PGA ‘88) and Hubert Green (U.S. Open ’77, PGA ’85).

Seminole’s coach, Trey Jones, was on hand Sunday night at the College World Series to comment on his former three-time All American’s historic performance.

The 27-year-old can now add a U.S Open Championship to his lengthy list of collegiate accolades. With the power, precision, and demeanor he showed this weekend, Koepka looks to fully assert his dominance on tour, just as his friend, Dustin Johnson did only a year ago.
