PGA Championship 2019: Brooks Koepka’s dramatic final round in pictures

May 19, 2019

FARMINGDALE, N.Y. — The expectation heading into Sunday’s final round at Bethpage Black was that Brooks Koepka would win a fourth major championship, and it probably wouldn’t even be close.

But it proved to be far more interesting than anyone anticipated, particularly when Dustin Johnson pulled to within one stroke after a birdie on the 15th hole. But Koepka held on, and our J.D. Cuban was along to capture the most compelling moment of the 29-year-old superstar’s latest state
