Brooks Koepka may have come up short at the PGA Championship, finishing in a tie for 13th, eight shots behind winner Justin Thomas, but he showed he belongs among golf’s best with four top-15 finishes and the best cumulative score in this year’s four majors.
In all, just 13 golfers made the cut at all four majors and Koepka had the best total score at 21-under. That run included his win at the U.S. Open, an 11th place finish at the Masters, and a sixth-place showing at The Open.
Interestingly, the next three golfers with the best cumulative scores at the four majors are all still winless at the majors in their careers. But for Hideki Matsuyama (-20), Matt Kuchar (-20), and Rickie Fowler (-16), it feels like it is just a matter of time.
