Koepka was born on May 3, 1990, in West Palm Beach, Florida. He studied at Cardinal Newman High School and would later join Florida State University. There, he was a very active golf player and won several accolades including being a three-time All-American.

Koepka made his debut as a member of the European Tour at the Scottish Open. Then, in 2014 he would win the Turkish Airlines Open and overall had a great year with several top finishes. That year he was also named as the European Tour’s Sir Henry Cotton Rookie of the Year.
This brought the confidence in Koepka to carry on the next year to a new level. He didn’t disappoint either as Koepka won his first PGA Tour event at the Waste Management Phoenix Open. 2017 would be a major year for Koepka as he won his first major championship at the U.S. Open. By next year, he would move to number one in the Official World Golf Ranking after a win at the CJ Cup.
