What happened at the CJ Cup?

His first start of the new PGA Tour season and that’s all Brooks Koepka needed to get his first win of the season.

Fresh from being crowned PGA Tour Player of the Year for last season, Koepka shot a final-round 64 to wrap up a comfortable win at the CJ Cup – his 12th title overall and third in his last 11 starts.

The day didn’t start quite how Koepka would have liked. His overnight four-shot lead was decimated by a birdie-fest from Gary Woodland, but the three-time major champion composed himself after the turn and a back-nine 29, including an eagle at the 72nd hole, was enough to get the job done.

Woodland’s 63 was bettered only by Ryan Palmer, who finished in a tie for 3rd, but it still wasn’t enough to get within four of Koepka.

Defending champion Justin Thomas finished in a tie for 36th at 5-under par.

Mention a European country, and Matt will tell you which resorts make the National Club Golfer Top 100s: European Resorts list. He might even throw in who designed the golf course and how many rooms the hotel has got at each one…

Matt got into the game of golf from a young age, following his old man to the local golf club. He fell for the sport, and now can’t seem to go a day without thinking about how to improve his game (Thanks Dad!). Matt has been a member of Howley Hall GC in Leeds since 2020, and is just about managing to maintain a single-figure handicap. He likes to remind people that he once broke 75, but won’t tell people that it was on a shortened course during the winter.

He moved to Leeds after graduating from the University of Central Lancashire with a First Class Honours degree in Sports Journalism. Matt joined NCG after almost five years travelling the world with the Professional Squash Association, working on events in all four corners of the globe.

Matt currently plays a Cobra King LTDx driver and RadSpeed 3-wood. TaylorMade monopolise the rest of his bag, with a SIM UDI, M5 irons and both Milled Grind and HI-TOE wedges, along with a Monza Redline putter. He uses a Vice Pro Plus golf ball, because he’s a bit different…

Away from golf, Matt is a Manchester United fan, and a keen runner, having ran the Rob Burrow Leeds Marathon (his first and possibly last), in May 2023.
