A four-time All American at Florida State University, Brooks Koepka began his professional career by playing in Europe on the Challenge Tour. Kopeka made an immediate impact winning his first start in the fall of 2012 and winning three more titles in the first half of 2013. One of those victories, his win at the Fred Olson Challenge, placed Koepka in the record books for largest margin of victory (10 shots) in the tour’s history. These victories qualified him for the 2013 Open Championship and also earned him his European Tour card.
It’s been a meteoric rise for Koepka the past three years. He finished in 3rd place at his first event, the Frys.com Open and 4th at the U.S. Open. These early performances as a non-exempt special member of the PGA Tour earned Koepka a Masters invitation and a PGA Tour card.
In less than a year, Koepka had earned cards on the two most prestigious professional golf tours.
His solid play on both tours earned him a PGA Rookie of the Year nomination and the European Tour’s Sir Henry Cotton Rookie of the Year Award.
Brooks continued his momentum in 2015 by winning at Phoenix in February. Phoenix always attracts a great field and Brooks prevailed by a single shot over three players including two-time Masters winner Bubba Watson. In less than three years, Koepka finds himself in the top 20 of the Official World Golf Rankings.
Away from the course, Koepka enjoys following European Premier League team Manchester United and the Los Angeles Lakers.
