Comparing Brooks Koepka to Tiger Woods — even after his PGA Championship win — isn't fair to anyone, according to Justin Thomas.

Alex Myers discusses Brooks Koepka's wire-to-wire win at Bethpage Black and puts his major championship dominance in historical context.

A coronation almost turned into a calamity but Brooks Koepka survived to win the PGA Championship for a second consecutive year on Sunday and establish himself as golf's new big dog. He triumphed at Bethpage Black to secure his fourth major title in less than two years and take over the world number one ranking. It was not pretty but Koepka limped across the finish line two strokes ahead of fellow American Dustin Johnson in a championship that suddenly came to life in strong and gusty winds that provided a stern examination of skill and patience.

Specifically when it came to the treatment of Brooks Koepka. Perhaps worst was a series of Dustin Johnson chants while Koepka was on way to making bogey at the 14th. "I tell you what, the hour spent from No. 11 to 14 was interesting," Koepka said in his victory press conference.

The three-times major champion arrived at the year's second major without a top-10 placing since last July yet found a way to finish in a share of third despite playing on a Bethpage Black course not suited to his game. "I knew coming into the week that it was unlikely on this golf course that I was going to have a chance to win, and that's a humbling feeling for me," said Spieth. "But I knew that if I played the course the right way, had the right mentality, kept putting the way I've been putting, that I would be in it; that I would be, you know, in and having a chance to make some noise."

Draped from head to toe in Nike apparel and owner of biceps that would shame the preening regulars of Venice Beach, back-to-back US Open and USPGA champion Brooks Koepka looks every inch the American sporting superstar. The Empire State building was not illuminated to honour his triumph on the other side of the East River at Bethpage Black (as it was for Tiger Woods in April). Perhaps these invitations were lost in the post, but it is hard to escape the conclusion that Koepka - the only male golfer under 30 with four major championships - is a blank page in the public mind.

SportsPulse: Golfweek's David Dusek was on hand when Brooks Koepka secured his second straight PGA Championship and describes the significance of this win. FARMINGDALE, N.Y. — Brandel Chamblee might not want to run into Brooks Koepka in a dark alley anytime soon. Just moments after his fourth major championship win at Bethpage Black, the 2019 champion was asked about his use of career slights and what the “most disrespected or slighted” he's felt as an athlete. “Telling me I wasn't tough,” Koepka said during a news conference. “That pissed me off. That really pissed me off.” After an awkward pause, he was asked who said he was not tough. “I think we all know.” Koepka was referring to Golf Channel

Brooks Koepka held off a late charge from Dustin Johnson to capture his second consecutive PGA Championship on Sunday, completing a wire-to-wire victory for his fourth major title in nerve-wracking fashion. A record seven-stroke lead for Koepka was reduced to a single shot, but he withstood making four bogeys in a row on the back nine and another at 17 for an unexpectedly narrow triumph. Koepka fired a final-round four-over par 74 at windy Bethpage Black to finish 72 holes on eight-under 272 and defeat Johnson by two strokes, replacing him as world number one as a result.

Brooks Koepka took inspiration from the crowd turning on him as he nearly "choked away" the PGA Championship and battled through to recover for the most satisfying victory of his career. Koepka shook off four back-nine bogeys in a row to win his fourth major title Sunday at Bethpage Black taking a two-stroke victory over fast-closing Dustin Johnson. "This is definitely the most satisfying of all the ones I've won," Koepka said.

FARMINGDALE, N.Y. (AP) — His place in PGA Championship history finally secure, Brooks Koepka draped both arms around the top of the Wanamaker Trophy and let out a deep sigh. The stress was more than he wanted. The satisfaction was more than he imagined. Koepka lost all but one shot of his record seven-shot lead Sunday. Then he lost the brutal Long Island crowd, which began chants of "D.J.! D.J.!" as Koepka was on his way to a fourth straight bogey that allowed Dustin Johnson to pull within one shot. "It's New York," Koepka said. "What do you expect when you're half-choking it away?" He responded like a player capable of piling up major championships faster than anyone since Tiger Woods.
