American professional golfer, Brooks Koepka arrived about an hour before his scheduled tee time. He hit a couple of practice balls on the range. Then ruthlessly dominated TPC Southwind, golf's ninth most difficult golf course, to lift his first WGC-FedEx St. Jude Invitational trophy.
For a moment one shot separated Koepka and McIlroy, promising a heavyweight super fight. So, during those moments there was some unrest. Who would fill the empty World No 1 spot?
However, instead, the fight was over fast. In a few hours was Koepka as confirmed as the undisputed champion and the most dominant golfer on the planet. McIlroy’s camp were left bewildered.
But, thanks to the Northern Irishman’s 62 in the 3rd round which saw him in line for a win to boost his bruised ego following his Open flop. It was also billed as a blockbuster and the 1st time McIlroy had clashed with Koepka, also a four-time Major winner.
Much to the fans disapproval, Koepka soon moved to a minus four score through 10 leaving McIlroy in his dust. A run of eleven consecutive pars would never be enough to get past the field, let alone past the world’s best player. In any measure, this was a knockout display by the Brooks Koepka as he scurried off out of touching distance.
