The closing 18 holes at Bellerive Country Club proved to be nothing short of must-see golf. U.S. Open (back to back) champion Brooks Koepka opened the day with a two-shot lead. He may have had a few low points in the day but ultimately no one could catch Koepka.

As Koepka won his third major in just 14 months contenders including Tiger Woods, Justin Thomas and Adam Scott were hunting for the lead as well. Woods fell short of the title but ignited the crowd with a final round of 64. From the top of the leaderboard through the rest of the ranks, the final round of the 100th PGA Championship gave fans plenty of highlights to go home to.

Koepka cashes in for his third major at the PGA Championship

Koepka continued to keep himself ahead of the pack with patience and poise even when he found himself in trouble.

The pressure of his lead slipping away only continued to fan the fire to win of Koepka on the 15th hole.

Even the lengthy 248 yard par-3 was no match for Koepka off the tee.

With one final putt at the 18th hole, Brooks Koepka now has four PGA Tour victories, three of which are major championships.

Tiger takes over Bellerive

Tiger Woods was ready to play Sunday as he fired his approach over the water to get it close at the second hole.

A dialled in sand save propelled Woods to 10-under par and within striking distance of the lead.

Woods was far from spectacular from the tee but saved his round no matter where he was on his approach.

Everything but the bottom of the cup for Woods’ birdie attempt on number 11.

With 9-iron in hand, Tiger was on the prowl Sunday as he hunted down every flagstick he could.

He may not have won the tournament but Tiger Woods proves he can still contend, potentially on the Ryder Cup team in September, after a final round of 64 including a closing birdie at 18.

The Roars of the Rest

Rory McIlroy chips in for birdie on the par-4 9th hole.

Before stumbling down the stretch, defending PGA Champion Justin Thomas hept things close early on thanks to putts like he had on the par-4 7th hole.

Adam Scott was determined to keep things close down the stretch as he played side by side Brooks Koepka on Sunday.

Jordan Spieth may not have been in contention most of his round Sunday but that didn’t stop him from turning in highlight reels of his own.

Don’t sleep on Shane Lowry as he nearly went coast to coast with his putt on the 13th hole to get to double digits at 10-under par.

Kevin Na nearly unleashes an eagle on number five.

Shot of the Tournament

Without a doubt, the shot of the tournament belonged to Matt Wallace following his hole in one at the par-3 16th hole during Saturday’s third round.
