Best round of golf ever at Bethpage Black, a 63.
Best 36 hole score in a major tournament.
Had a 7 shot lead going into the final round.
He has won 4 majors in less than 2 years, a record.
First in 45 years to win the PGA wire-to-wire.
He has won 4 majors in 8 starts.
First time in history, to be a 2 time defending champ. in 2 majors.
Moved in to the no.1 ranking in the world.

As I watched the back nine, in the fourth round, some drama began to unfold. DJ was mounting a charge, while Koepka was surrendering his 7 shot lead. Then with an opportunity for DJ to tie Koepka,with a birdie, on the 16th hole, DJ had a bogie. That was the end of the pressure. Koepka held on to win by 2 strokes over DJ.

All attention now is on the U.S. Open, at Pebble Beach, in June. Can Koepka maintain his mastery of the majors? Can Tiger regroup and challenge at Pebble Beach?
