Golf World Congratulates PGA Champ Brooks Koepka on Twitter

Brooks Koepka won the 2018 PGA Championship at Bellerive with a four-day total of 16-under par, two shots better than Tiger Woods. With the victory, Koepka became the first player since Woods (2000) to win the U.S. Open and PGA in the same season, and only the fifth in history, joining Jack Nicklaus (1982), Ben Hogan (1948), and Gene Sarazen (1922).

The 28-year old Koepka joins Rory McIlroy (4) and Jordan Spieth (3) as the only players in the world under 30 with multiple majors.

In fact he has more majors than world top-20 under-30 superstars Justin Thomas (1), Patrick Reed (1), Jon Rahm (0), Rickie Fowler (0), Tommy Fleetwood (0), and Hideki Matsuyama (0) COMBINED.

Afterwards, the golf world, along with many of Koepka’s competitors, congratulated the 28-year superstar via Twitter.

Here’s a roundup:
