After watching what Tiger Woods and Jordan Spieth did on Saturday morning at TPC Sawgrass, Sunday’s morning wave at the Players Championship had a tough act to follow. Brooks Koepka did his best to top the final-round power pairing by himself by flirting with history, a common theme this week.
After carding a four-under 32 on the front nine, the reigning US Open champion cooled off on the back, making four straight pars before grabbing his fifth birdie of the day at the par-4 14th. Following a par at No.15, Koepka’s 307-yard (280 metres) drive at the par-5 16th left him 208 yards (190m) to the hole, and he pulled out a 6-iron and produced the shot of the week:

“To be honest with you I wasn’t aiming at the flag,” Koepka said afterward. “I was aiming about 15 feet left and I kind of pushed it a little bit. It’s fine.”
