Golfers pay tribute to Brooks Koepka after PGA Championship
Brooks Koepka is back in the win column.
Golfer LIV is the winner of the 105th PGA Championship with a final score of 9 under par, beating Viktor Hovland and Scottie Scheffler by 2 strokes. Koepka got off to a blistering start on Sunday and never let go, fending off late challenges from Hovland and Scheffler.
It’s Koepka’s first major win since 2019 and a big weight on his shoulders after he couldn’t hold a 2-stroke lead at the Masters in April. It is also the first major victory for a player in the LIV Golf League. Koepka celebrated his fifth major win by referencing Luniz’s 1995 hit “I Got 5 on It.”

What a PGA Championship in Oak Hill. The course, layout, crowd and volunteers were the best. What an inspiring game from Brooks to win his 3rd and 5th Majors. Michael Block steals the hearts of all golf fans with his performance and his stunning hole. Incredible week.
