2019 - Week 20 Winners

Brooks Koepka (ranked 1st by Golf Predictor) won the US PGA Championship on the European/US PGA Tour. The 29 year old American successfully defended a major title for a second time with an impressive performance at Bethpage. Koepka spread eagled the field with an opening 63 and was imperious over the first three days, building up a large lead. However, he stalled on the back nine Sunday and was almost caught by Dustin Johnson. After almost reeling him in, Johnson then bogeyed twice late on, allowing Koepka to claim his fourth major in eight starts by two shots. Koepka was our top ranked golfer and we had eight of the top sixteen plus ties (8/22) on the brutal layout.
