Brooks Koepka won just the second regular PGA Tour event of his career on Sunday in Korea, outgunning a world-class field half way around the world. Koepka shot a final round 8-under par 64, which was capped off in style with a 72nd-hole eagle, to win by four strokes over Gary Woodland.
The win also propelled the 28-year-old to the top of the Official World Golf Ranking, becoming just the 23rd man to earn the top spot since the rankings were established in 1986.

Doing his best to keep the charging Woodland and Ryan Palmer at bay, Koepka’s death knell for the rest of the field came on the par-4 16th hole. Missing the green with his approach, Koepka knocked in his third shot from the rough to make his eighth birdie of the day and slam the door on the rest of the field.
