Brooks Koepka just loves showing up in the big tournaments, doesn’t he? While the Tour Championship might not be considered a ‘major,’ there is $15 million on the line for the winner, so that makes all the sense in the world why the hulking golfer has taken such an interest.
After two rounds in Atlanta at East Lake, he leads by a shot over Rory McIlroy at -13. Koepka, by virtue of his number three seed in the standings, began there and couldn’t get much going to increase it, yet he still leads. It will be interesting to see if he can get back to his best, which he was starting to get to before a weather delay derailed him. Justin Thomas is also one stroke back, while Xander Schauffele is two off the lead.
