Brooks Koepka career stats: Major championships
It’s fair to say that Koepka is the man for the big occasion. He brings his best stuff and enters another level when it comes to the majors.
After beginning his major championship career with two missed cuts – at the 2012 US Open and 2013 Open Championship – Koepka’s record reads was not too shabby until that breakthrough at the 2017 US Open.
He has since added another US Open and another PGA Championship to his CV.
2012: MC (US Open)
2013: MC (Open), T70 (PGA)
2014: T4 (US Open), T67 (Open), T15 (PGA)
2015: T33 (Masters), T18 (US Open), T10 (Open), T5 (PGA)
2016: T21 (Masters), T13 (US Open), T4 (PGA)
2017: T11 (Masters), 1 (US Open), T6 (Open), T13 (PGA)
2018: 1 (US Open), T39 (Open), 1 (PGA)
2019: T2 (Masters), 1 (PGA)
His remarkable performance at Bethpage means he has won half of the last eight major championships he has entered.
