Catching Up With All The Sports Action From Over The Weekend
Brooks Koepka’s hot start on Sunday carried him to a 3-stroke victory in the WGC-FedEx St. Jude Invitational in Memphis, Tennessee.
Koepka made three birdies in a four-hole span on the front nine, never bogeyed a hole and recorded a 5-under 65. This continued his string of outstanding performances (tied for fourth at the British Open, second at the U.S. Open, a victory in the PGA Championship). He’s the sixth golfer to win a major and a WGC title in the same season.
Koepka’s move up on Sunday worked in tandem with Rory McIlroy’s slide. McIlroy shot 62 on Saturday but posted a 71 on Sunday and slipped to fourth place. Webb Simpson took second.
