After one hole, it looked like Brooks Koepka’s hopes of winning his fifth major championship were over.
The former Seminole started his round with a double bogey which rarely ends well on the tour. From there, Koepka was able to not only salvage his round, but he also positioned himself well after one day. The former FSU star would rebound with two birdies on his next three holes which got him back to even par.
He would finish his round with just one bogey and four birdies keeping him close to the top of the leaderboard heading into Friday’s action. He’s only two strokes back of the leader: Corey Conners at -5.
Follow the rest of Brooks’ Tournament:
Koepka is set to start his second round Friday afternoon at 1:58pm est. He will be paired with two other former major winners in Rory McIlrory and Justin Thomas.
