Brooks Koepka walking from the 9th tee box to the 9th fairway during Saturday’s rainy third round of the PGA Championship held at Oak Hill Country Club in Pittsford. His play during “moving day” catapulted him from a sixth place tie (at 2 under) into first place (at 6 under) heading into Sunday’s final round. Koepka shot a 67 on Sunday to finish 9 under and win his third PGA championship in six years. He became only the sixth player to win three or more PGA Championships and is one of twenty to win at least five majors.

PGA club pro Michael Block tracks his shot down the 16th fairway. The night before the final round, this fan favorite visited the Pittsford Pub & Grille. Block had the tournament’s only hole-in-one on the 15th during Sunday’s final round. His spectacular finish allowed him to tie for 15th, which earned him an automatic invite to next year’s PGA Championship and a $288,333 share of the purse. Block became the Cinderella story at Oak Hill and is the highest finishing club pro since Lonnie Nielson posted an 11-under-par in the 1986 PGA Championship.
