Through 15 holes on Sunday at the CJ Cup, Brooks Koepka was one shot ahead of Gary Woodland at 18-under par, but a poor second shot on the 16th left him with a difficult up and down for par to stay out front.
Koepka, though, got up and down with one stroke by chipping in for birdie to edge ahead by two. A final-hole eagle gave the new world No. 1 a four-stroke win, good for a first-place prize of $1.71 million.
No wonder Brooksie was all smiles. That buys lot of protein juice.
