This was also his fourth major title in his last eight starts in a major which makes him just the fifth player in the modern era to win four or more majors in a span of eight starts. Ben Hogan, Jack Nicklaus and Tiger Woods are the others.
With the win, Koepka will surpass Johnson to become the No.1 player in the official world golf rankings as well as No.2 in Fed Ex Cup points.
