Koepka started the round with a 7-stroke lead. But Johnson had cut it two before back-to-back bogeys on Nos. 16 and 17. Koepka steadied himself with a clutch par save on 15 to hold on for his fourth major title.

Opinion: Brooks Koepka's competitors couldn't put a dent in his lead on moving day at PGA

Opinion: Brooks Koepka's competitors couldn't put a dent in his lead on moving day at PGA For those players chasing Brooks Koepka, who is just 18 holes away from winning his fourth major in his last eight attempts, it was a wasted day. Adam Scott, we’re talking about you. Scott started the day in the second-to-last group at five-under par after firing a 64 Friday. He wasn’t going to do that again, but if he had, he would be just one stroke off the lead. Instead, Scott shot a two-over 72, and fell even further behind Koepka, who fired an even-par 70 Saturday. And Jordan Spieth, we’re talking about you, too.

But Koepka held off all challengers at Bellerive Country Club. You can see the final leaderboard right here. We were live all week as Brooks Koepka completed a double-dip at the 100th PGA Championship . With his win , Koepka is the first golfer since Jordan Spieth in 2015 to win two
