Tuesday, January 21, 2014
Brooks Koepka has earned a sponsor exemption into the Honda Classic on Feb. 28-March 2 at PGA National Resort & Spa in Palm Beach Gardens, Fla.
Koepka, who grew up in Wellington, Fla., was a three-time All-American at Florida State. Since turning pro in 2012, he won four times on the Challenge Tour and earned an automatic promotion to the European Tour in 2013. He is No. 88 in the Official World Golf Ranking.
The 23-year-old has played in three majors: the 2012 U.S. Open, the 2013 Open Championship and the 2013 PGA Championship.
Koepka came close to winning the PGA Tour’s Frys.com Open in October on a sponsor exemption before ultimately finishing in a tie for third.
