Born in West Palm Beach, he played college golf at Florida State University, where he was a three-time All-American. Turned pro in 2012 and was touted as one of the most talented young players in the world after he swept through the Challenge Tour in 2013, winning four times before living up to his billing by capturing his first European Tour title at the Turkish Airlines Open in late 2014 and a first Major title at the 2017 U.S. Open at Erin Hills. Koepka became the first man in 29 years to successfully defend the U.S. Open title when he triumphed at Shinnecock Hills in 2018. He then won his third Major Championship in just 15 months when he triumphed at the 2018 US PGA Championship at Bellerive. Says his decision to play in Europe was fuelled by a desire to be a more rounded player. Made his Ryder Cup debut at Hazeltine in 2016, winning three points from four matches.
