Brooks Koepka Was Forged in Europe


Championship , Koepka, a Florida native, now owns four major titles in the past 24 months.


This week at Pebble Beach, he will seek to join Willie Anderson as just the second man to win three consecutive United States Open crowns.


“I always thought he was pretty good,” said Danny Willett, a former Masters champion, “but what he’s done in the last 18 months is nothing short of remarkable.”


“He didn’t win at the end of the week,” Aphibarnrat said, “but you could see straightaway that this guy is going to be good one day.”


Koepka’s lone European Tour win came at the 2014 Turkish Airlines Open, shooting 65 on the final day to overtake Wade Ormsby and Ian Poulter.


“He’s still good friends with all the guys, but I think it’s just human nature when people overlook him for some unknown reason.
