Former USF men’s golf star Chase Koepka used an 8-under 63 final round on Sunday at the PGA Tour’s 3M Open to vault up 30 spots to finish T-26 at TPC Twin Cities in Blaine, Minnesota.
The West Palm Beach native (and Brooks’ younger brother) had a bogey-free fourth round, much improved from his finish on Saturday where a double-bogey, and a bogey on No. 17 and 18 sent him over par for the first time in the tournament.
Michael Thompson (-19) won the tournament, his first win in seven years.
A couple worthy notes:— Chase Koepka Tracker (@TraCKingChase) July 26, 2020
1) To put the 63 in perspective, the course record is 62, set and matched several times at last year's inaugural #3MOpen.
2) T26, I believe, is Chase's best PGA TOUR finish in an individual event. (He & Brooks have teamed up twice at Zurich: T5 and T22.)
Yes, that’s a Chase Koepka Tracker account. Twitter is free folks.
Koepka finished ahead of Jason Dufner (-10), Stewart Cink (-8), Bill Haas (-5), K.J. Choi (-4) among those who made the cut Friday. Brooks Koepka, Dustin Johnson, and Bubba Watson were some of the notables to miss the cut. For his troubles, Chase will take home a little over $48,000.
Koepka’s four rounds totals: 70 (-2), 68 (-4), 72 (+1), and 63 (-8).
