Brooks Koepka Secures LIV Golf Singapore Victory Ahead of PGA Championship

At Glance

‣ Brooks Koepka claimed the LIV Golf Singapore trophy, marking his fourth individual LIV Golf title and becoming the player with the most individual titles since LIV’s inception in 2022.

‣ Ripper GC, led by Cameron Smith and Marc Leishman, recorded its second consecutive team success at the event, showcasing strong performances that contributed significantly to their club’s victory.

‣ Koepka’s victory was celebrated in front of his family, highlighting a personal milestone as he performed significantly better than in previous tournaments attended by his son, Crew, adding a sentimental value to his win.

Brooks Koepka was getting all warmed up, you know? He’s eyeing to defend his PGA Championship title at Valhalla, which is just around the corner in two weeks. But first, he snagged the LIV Golf Singapore trophy on Sunday. Quite the momentum, eh?

The dude was leading overnight at Sentosa Golf Club. Popped in a final-round 68 (-3), which is no small feat, to clinch the top spot. Ended up 15-under, edging out Cameron Smith and Marc Leishman by two strokes. Those two? They’re from Ripper GC, which nailed the team standings.

Oh, and Koepka’s buddy, Talor Gooch? The defending champ landed fourth at 12-under. Tyrrell Hatton and Thomas Pieters were neck and neck, just a shot behind in fifth. Quite the leaderboard shuffle, huh?

Smith and Leishman, man, they really brought their A-game. Rounds of seven-under and six-under, respectively, catapulted them up the table. Their Aussie club, Ripper GC, snagged its second team win in a row. First, it was LIV Golf Adelaide, and now, Singapore with a smashing 32-under. Beat Fireballs GC and Cleeks GC by three.

Koepka could’ve had an easier Sunday, though. If only a few more putts had dropped in the back nine. Despite that, he managed a one-under through the last nine holes. Meanwhile, the Ripper GC captain and his teammate were on fire, tearing up the course.

Then there was this moment – @BKoepka taking the W . And the celebration? Pure gold . #LIVGolf @SmashGC. You gotta see it to believe it.

Smith was on a roll, with six birdies and no bogeys between holes nine and 18. Started on hole three, and just went for it. Leishman wasn’t far behind, with five birdies, no drops. Started on two. But, the Open champ of 2022 hit par-par to finish, while Leishman’s final hole bogey gave Koepka that sweet two-shot lead.

So, Koepka clinched his fourth individual LIV Golf title. Adds this to his wins in Jeddah (2022, 2023) and Orlando (2023). Quite the collection, huh?

Koepka’s reaction? “Yeah, it’s all starting to come together. A lot of work, on and off the course. These two weeks? Pretty good, to say the least.” He’s been grinding with Claude, seeing improvements since Adelaide. And it paid off here, big time.

Now, Koepka’s leading with the most individual titles since LIV kicked off in 2022. And doing it in front of his wife and son, Crew? Priceless. “Yeah, it’s awesome. Great to have them here. Finished better than 40th or 45th, like the last few times he’s been there. At least he saw me do something decent.”

Smith, captain of the victorious Ripper GC, shared some insights too. Took them a bit to get into the groove at the season’s start. “Yeah, I mean, I’m very proud of them. Knew we had it in us. A few lazy boys over Christmas, but we’re hitting our stride now. Looking to make it three in Houston.”

LIV’s taking a breather for the PGA Championship, then it’s off to LIV Golf Houston between June 7-9. Debuting at Golf Club of Houston. Can’t wait to see what’s next!
