Titleist Brand Ambassador, Brooks Koepka, continued his rise to golfing fame this weekend by claiming his third Challenge Tour victory of the season at the Scottish Hydro Challenge hosted by MacDonald Hotels & Resorts.
With the victory, Koepka earned his immediate promotion to the European Tour.
He charged to the head of the field with closing rounds of 62 and 68, to finish on 18-under par and complete a three stroke victory.
Fresh from securing his European Tour card, Koepka ensured his debut in The Open Championship at Muirfield by winning International Final Qualifying Europe at Sunningdale.
The 23-year-old Floridian led the nine qualifiers from IFQ Europe after rounds of 69 and 65 left him with a 5-under-par total of 134.
He finished one shot clear of England’s Oliver Fisher and two clear of Spain’s Alvaro Quiros, Frenchman Gregory Bourdy, Richard McEvoy, from England and Northern Ireland’s Gareth Maybin who all qualified for The Open.
”It’s awesome to play in The Open, it’s what you prepare your game to play in. Any Major is special but The Open is up there. Everybody wants to win it,” he said.
Sweden’s Niclas Fasth and Scott Jamieson from Scotland also secured spots at Muirfield.
