Koepka became the first player since Tiger Woods to win the PGA Championship in back-to-back years (2006-07). It was Koepka’s fourth major championship victory, with wins in the 2017 and 2018 U.S. Open and last year’s PGA Championship.

Johnson, the No. 1-ranked player in the world, caught up to Koepka in the final round. He parred five holes on the tough back nine and finished two shots away from Koepka, who held a seven-stroke advantage after the second round, the largest lead after 36 holes in PGA Championship history.
