Adding to the excitement this weekend is Brooks Koepka’s PGA Championship win over the weekend. Koepka, who plays in the LIV Golf League, will have all eyes on him this weekend to see if he can re-create the success he had at Oak Hill at the PGA Championship.
“The fans are going to get to see a five-time major champion who is just fantastic at golf”, say O’Leary.
