Brooks Koepka is about to tee off from Pebble Beach in the third round of the U.S. Open and he’s hoping for the same result as the last two tournaments.
Koepka is the two-time defending champion at the U.S. Open – and the PGA Championship for that matter.
He’s off to a solid start in this year’s tournament, sitting at four-under after the first two rounds. Back-to-back rounds of 69 put Koepka just five shots off the lead heading into the final two days of competition.
He entered the 2019 U.S. Open as 8-to-1 favorite.
The last time we saw Koepka in a major tournament, he threatened to run away with it and leave the world’s best in his dust. He came back to Earth briefly before walking out with a win.
Koepka’s girlfriend, model Jena Sims, has been there for each of his major wins. She wasn’t about to miss this tournament.
Earlier this week, Sims posted a photo from Pebble Beach.
Pebble Beach has been kind to a few golfers on Saturday afternoon, while more have struggled to get anything going. The two-time defending champ hopes for the former.
Koepka is set to tee off at 5:01 p.m. E.T.
