Koepka entered the PGA finale as the No.1 player in the official world golf rankings after an outstanding 2018-19 season where he is a shoo-in to be named Player of the Year for the second consecutive season.
He’s already won three times this year including the WGC-FedEx St. Jude, CJ Cup @ Nine Bridges and the PGA Championship as well as three second-place finishes including The Masters, US Open and Honda Classic.
With $15 million on the line today for the winner and a one-shot lead in hand, Koepka can claim his crown as the undisputed worlds greatest player.
