Brooks Koepka and Harold Varner III are the final pairing at today’s PGA Championship at Bethpage Black in Long Island, New York. Koepka entered the day seven strokes up, hoping to win his fourth major championship. Varner, whose previous best major finish was a T66th at The Open in 2016, was hoping to make it interesting.
That hasn’t happened, unfortunately.
Koepka has been steady, holding firm at -12 for the tournament through five holes. Varner, meanwhile, has already lost significant ground.
Varner, an ECU alum, is now even for the tournament and is 12 strokes back after beginning the day at -5.
Harold Varner III was five back of Koepka after the 1st. He's now 12 back four holes later after double-double-single-single #PGAChampionship

At least the casual fan is now able to relate to him…
This Harold Varner moment is very relatable
