Koepka holds on at Bethpage black

Brooks Koepka PGA Championship Bethpage Black rBrooks Koepka took the lead early on Thursday and held that spot for the remainder of the week, It is something that is very difficult to do. Brooks made the black course at Bethpage, Which is a very diffciult course look quite easy. Dustin Johnson did try to give us a bit of excitement coming down the stretch but the massive 7 shot lead coming in to the final rounds play proved to much to catch up, in fact no player has ever lost a 7 shot lead on the final day of a major championship and Brooks was not going to allow his name on that record. Lets take a look at Brooks Koepka's game and what makes him so succesful in major championships. The most obvious is his physique, he is the strongest player on tour but has a swing that is fundementally strong and shows great control off the tee. For a player as strong and swings the club as fast as Koepka good technique is so important as any slight error is magnified at that kind of speed. Secondly is the mental game of Brooks Koepka, he is a very calm individual that does'nt let the situation get the better of him through the good golf and poor which is why for such a talent he fly's under the media radar as he doesnt offer much excitement to write about for a journalist. For the most part he lets the club's do the talking for him which is what some of the other worlds best golfers should learn from him.
