Twitter reacts to Brooks Koepka beating Tiger, winning 2018 PGA Championship

Tiger Woods was on fire for much of the day. So many other top world golfers like Adam Scott were on the top of their games as well. None of that mattered to Brooks Koepka, who outlasted them all to win the 2018 PGA Championship, his third major title in the past 14 months.

Koepka fired a final-round 66 to finish two shots ahead of Woods, who finished in second place.

With the victory, Koepka joined Gene Sarazen, Ben Hogan, Jack Nicklaus and Tiger Woods (the last to do it way back in 2000) as the only golfers in PGA Tour history to win both the U.S. Open and PGA Championship in the same year.

While so much of the chatter on social media had to do with what Woods was doing Sunday, in the end many recognized Koepka’s monumental achievement.





Though, others were more upset with Koepka for “ruining” Woods’ shot at winning his 15th career major.

Sour grapes, if you ask me. Besides, wouldn’t we all love to see Woods win another major by actually earning it, rather than having his competition crumble down the stretch?

I know I would.
