2012 Minor League Golf Tour Champion Brooks Koepka from Lake Worth, FL returned to the winners circle on the PGA Tour Sunday at the Waste Management Phoenix Open, the site of his first PGA Tour win back in 2015. After battling some nagging injuries in 2020 Brooks doubted if he would ever win again. Well that doubt has been put to rest.
Right out of college Brooks went over to Europe to compete on the Challenge Tour. Brooks won 4 Challenge Tour events in less than 2 years between the summer of 2012 and the end of 2013. By winning 3 Challenge Tour events in 2013, he earned his European Tour card for 2014. He wasted no time and won the Turkish Airlines Open propelling him onto the world stage. He then finished 4th in the 2014 US Open which earned him a PGA Tour card for the 2014-15 season. He then won the Waste Management Phoenix Open in 2015 which helped qualify him for the 2016 Ryder Cup team.
While Brooks was home from traveling and playing on the Challenge Tour in 2012, he won the Minor League Golf Tour Championship in December 2012. In fact, he played 8 events on the MLGT and won 4 of them!
The Minor League Golf Tour is proud of all your success Brooks. Keep it up!
