I am rooting for Godzilla. I missed out on a lot of PGAT action, and that guy has become a real elite player, with a great all-around game.

Koepka was solid all day. He won it. Harman didn't lose it, though once it started to get away from him on the back nine, I feel like he caved a bit. Expected more from Justin Thomas, but after making 9 birdies yesterday, you really can't expect it back to back days. Matsuyama showed up near the front again. He's sneaky good. Rickie was a touch off. It was a good Sunday, except I stayed home and watched instead of playing. A little tighter finish with a lot more drama would have made it more worth it.

I watched a bit, then hit a couple balls at the range. Came home and watched some more. Seemed to be a perfect course for a big hitter. Hard to understand how Rory, Dustin, etc all struggled.

I was pulling for Harman. Koepka seems okay in a over muscled frat boy kind of way.. Which isn't fair since he had to play around the world before he got a shot at the Tour.

Agreed with Doug's take. Koepka was unflappable and deserved to win. Sure, he hits a long way, but there was a lot more than that: for example on #15, where hitting the fairway was crucial, he hit an iron just a few yards past the beginning of the fairway and a great iron shot pin highand then drained the birdie putt. He was clutch all around today.
I'm gonna go low this time...

I think he hit 17/18 gir.

The trackman flights of his iron shots were impressive. Dead straight on target every time and really high.

I don't know if Koepka is douche or not but the media conversation about him certainly is. I have read a few different items about him going back to earlier in the year, about how Brooks Koepka is some world class athletic specimen who turned down opportunities to star in football, baseball, basketball, you know, the real sports, and decided to instead grace golf with his awesomeness.

I watched the back nine on Sunday. That's all I could manage to catch.
