Koepka wins LIV Singapore before US PGA defence

Home » Koepka wins LIV Singapore before US PGA defence

American Brooks Koepka won the LIV Singapore event as he builds up to defending his US PGA Championship title later this month.

Koepka shot a three-under-par final-round 68 to finish on 15 under, two shots ahead of Australia’s Marc Leishman and Cameron Smith.

“It’s all starting to come around. I’ve put in a lot of work and I like the way things are trending,” said Koepka.

“I just need to go back next week and make sure everything continues, do the right stuff and go from there.”

Koepka, 34, led by three strokes going into the final round and carded four birdies and a bogey on the way to becoming the first player to win four titles on the Saudi Arabia-backed LIV Golf League.

“I just played very consistently and happy with the way I played all week,” said Koepka.

“I made a couple of clutch putts today and the ball-striking was solid. I didn’t really think I made too many mistakes. And that’s a great feeling when it kind of feels easy.”

England’s Tyrrell Hatton shot a 66 to finish on 11 under, with Spaniard Jon Rahm a further two shots back on nine under after a 67.

Meanwhile, Spaniard Adrian Otaegui won the China Open on the DP World Tour with a brilliant final round of 65.

The tournament was shortened to 54 holes when the third round was cancelled because of thunder and lightning in the Shenzhen area.

Otaegui, who started the last day five shots behind leader Sebastian Soderberg, carded seven birdies to set a clubhouse target of 18 under par.

It proved enough for victory as Guido Migliozzi finished second on 17 under and Soderberg, who went to the 18th level with Otaegui only to hit a double bogey, on 16 under.

England’s Paul Waring also finished on 16 under after a final-round 69.

“I had to wait a little bit since I finished, see what was happening in the final group but luckily for me, things turned up well and I’m extremely happy,” said Otaegui, whose win earned him a place at the US PGA at Valhalla Golf Club.

“I have been putting well, I was feeling more and more confident through the week with the putter and I knew if I had birdie chances that I could potentially hole a few.

“I think I was actually feeling more calm through the round.”
