Upon getting out of Florida State, he was without a card on any tour, so went onto the Challenge Tour, which is Europe's version of the Web.com Tour. The long-hitting American travelled far and wide, from Kazakhstan to Kenya and mainland Europe, cramming into bed and breakfast rooms with fellow players, spending some nights sleeping in cars, and learning about life and how to win.
His final total of 272 was low by U.S. Open standards, but thanks to a lack of wind during the first three rounds, Koepka wasn't the only player going low.
"I learned a lot this week".
Koepka thankfully made a decision to hang around and win the tournament, earning him a chance to play on the European Tour, which he took with both hands by going on to win the 2014 Turkish Airlines Open.
Schofield, who led the European Tour for 30 years and in 2013 was elected to the World Golf Hall of Fame, told Reuters that Koepka had won a lot of respect during his days on the European Challenge Tour, beginning as a 22-year-old in 2012.
"I mean there's probably not that much that's that interesting, to be honest". I felt like I've underachieved. "But I'm happy with the way I played, and it gives me confidence going forward". "And the more patient that I can become, the more times I'll put myself in this situation".
The fast-moving Koepka captured the 2015 Waste Management Phoenix Open but despite often putting himself in contention, the wins did not continue to flow and from 21 top-10 finishes on the USA -based tour, he only had the one victory.
"I'd won once on the PGA Tour, once on the European Tour", Koepka said. "I would think they would want to change a few things if it comes back here, maybe narrow the fairways a little bit".
Koepka said he found himself trying too hard to win. "Love the support I get every week", Hadwin said in response to the impromptu anthem.
Sentiment and nostalgia will always find a place on the leaderboard, as 37-year-old Sergio Garcia showed by notching his first major win at the Masters in April, while 50-year-old Wisconsin-native Steve Stricker provided an emotional touchstone in an Erin Hills swan-song. "Just don't get ahead of yourself", the laconic Koepka added.
"It was a long phone call". "He said, 'Catch me tomorrow.' I never got the autograph". You look back at all the wins, even on the Challenge Tour.
"For some reason I just wanted to get out and go home".
NOTEWORTHY: Koepka is the seventh straight first-time major victor.
Still, he could take some comfort and pride in matching the best finish ever by a Japanese in a men's Major, set by Isao Aoki, runner-up to Jack Nicklaus in the 1980 US Open at Baltusrol.
While Koepka was in first place, Hideki Matsuyama was making a charge. "I'm really looking forward to it". He came up short at the par-4-15th, when a 23-foot putt stopped right on the edge of the cup. "No regrets", he told reporters through an interpreter. "It is all new to me, and you have got to deal with it".
"I kept telling people previous year after the Ryder Cup", Brandt Snedeker said, "when Brooks figures out how good he is, he's going to be a world beater".
