PGA Championship a roaring success for St. Louis region

Brooks Koepka reacts after making a putt on the 18th green during the final round of the PGA Championship golf tournament at Bellerive Country Club.

I enjoyed the chemistry between commentators Dominik Holyer and Jamie Donaldson and I don't really have any complaints.

Brooks Koepka has been dominant on Bellerive Golf Course in the PGA Championship, and he now sits atop the leaderboard, heading into the final stretch.

All this despite an injury that kept him out of action for nearly the first four months of the year, and a single regulation PGA Tour win (2015 Waste Management Phoenix Open).

After closing out his round of 64 on Sunday, Woods acknowledged that though he will be in Paris either way as a vice captain, he wants to play on the team.

The man who finished second to Simpson at TPC Sawgrass - as well as T-2 at the British Open last month - is Xander Schauffele. "A bit of a struggle with my game today, but I hung in there".

After four back surgeries, you could certainly be forgiven for thinking that Tiger's time had been and gone.

"I would never have forseen that a year ago", Woods said.

It's hard to believe after all he has achieved and having his spine fused together just previous year, but Tiger's scoring total of 266 is his lowest ever in a major.

"Going from that to even being able to play this year to this, it's absolutely mind blowing", Koepka said.

"I'm just thankful to be here".

Woods had already been confirmed as a non-playing vice-captain for the USA. "I've been in the fitting, I think, for the last seven years for all the Ryder Cup and Presidents Cup's fittings", Woodland said.

Despite his superb win, the Tiger Woods revival means that his spotlight is far dimmer than it deserves to be.

The end of the 2018 PGA Championship saw Brooks Koepka lift his first Wanamaker trophy.

However, Koepka was immune to the pressure and calmly went about his business. "It kind of pushes you to step up your game".

I know what you may be thinking, but you can relax - it was a congratulatory tweet!

"I heard all the roars when Tiger made his run", Koepka said.

"It's pretty obvious when Tiger makes a birdie".

President Donald Trump has hailed US PGA victor Brooks Koepka as a "man of steel" following his triumph at Bellerive Country Club.

Asked what impresses him most about Koepka, Thomas answered: "Just how well he plays when the lights shine on him". Koepka, 28, won the Wanamaker Trophy for his second major championship of the year, following his victory in June at the 2018 U.S. Open in NY.

Four back to start the final round, Thomas actually caught Koepka and tied him for the final-round lead as he played his first 11 holes in 4 under par, with five birdies.

"I missed putts on 14 and 15 and Brooks didn't and my momentum was gone", Scott said. "I think there's a lot of folks out there who probably think he can help us".
