Defending PGA champion Brooks Koepka closed out the 106th PGA Championship on Sunday with his best round of the week, shooting 5-under 66 at Valhalla Country Club. A third-round 74 kept him from being any sort of a factor on Sunday; it is difficult for Koepka to be anything but unhappy when he is not a contender in a major.

“Yesterday I don't think I did one thing good at all,” said Koepka, a three-time PGA champion who owns five majors. “Usually when you play bad, you've got one thing that you do okay and you might putt bad, or you might drive it bad. Yesterday was just a combination of everything.”

When he performed below expectations last month at the Masters, where he tied for 45th, Koepka said he put himself through a week of grueling “punishment workouts.” He said his play at Valhalla likely will call for more.

“I feel like I'm playing good. It's just, yesterday was just kind of unfortunate timing,” he said. “But I felt like I'm playing all right. I missed a bunch of putts on Friday from inside like 5 feet, and then yesterday's round was unfortunate.

“But other than that, I think I'm pretty close to right there.”

Next up major-wise for Koepka will be next month’s U.S. Open at Pinehurst No. 2. Valhalla marked Koepka’s 40th career major championship. He has made 35 cuts, but on Sunday fell a little bit shy of collecting his 19th career top-10 finish.

Six of those top 10s have arrived at the PGA.
