Brooks Koepka, the winner of the last two U.S. Open championships, is in contention to win it again this evening. The four-time major champion, who won the PGA Championship at Bethpage Black last month, is just a couple of shots off the lead.
The star American golfer began the day four shots back of the leader, Gary Woodland. Koepka has surged up to just two shots behind.
Koepka, 29, is currently at -10 for the tournament. He trails the leader, Woodland, who’s at -12.
The Koepka crew has had plenty of celebratory moments over the last couple of years. If Koepka can rally in these final six holes, they’ll have another one.
Included in that celebratory moment will be Jena Sims, Koepka’s girlfriend of several years. The couple has had a bunch of moments just off the No. 18 green in recent seasons.
Koepka is currently through 13 holes, while Woodland is through 12. We’re in for quite the finish on FOX.
