Brooks Koepka While trying to imitate Masters swore his mistakes wouldn’t be repeated Tiger Woods and Jack Nicklaus by claiming a third US PGA Championship title.

Koepka took a one-hit lead over Corey Conners and Victor Hovland Six weeks after doubling that advantage after 54 holes in the first major race of the year, he makes his way to the final round at Oak Hill.

The four-time major winner finished second behind Jon Rahm with a closing 75-card at Augusta National, but looks set to take his first major since the 2019 US PGA at Bethpage.

When asked what the main lessons she learned from old world number one Augusta, she said, “Never think the way I think in the last round. I guess that was a big thing for me.

“I won’t do that again for the rest of my career. I promise I won’t look like this on Sunday.

“I was told that I thought only Tiger and Jack had won three (US PGA titles) so it would be pretty special to be on a list or category with them.”

The four major champions, along with his fellow LIV player, were within five shots of Koepka’s lead. Bryson DeChambeau three backs three down and Justin Rose and Scottie Scheffler both down.

Rory McIlroyBeing a member of Oak Hill, there was another hit at the bottom.
