Playing out of the third-to-last twosome, two-time defending champ and World No. 6 Brooks Koepka labored to a 4-over-par 39-35=74 in the final round of the 102nd PGA Championship, cratering 25 places to T29 on 3-under 277, a distant 10 in arrears of champion Collin Morikawa, who fired a day- and week-tying-low 64.
The four-time major winner, vying for his third straight PGA title, failed miserably as Morikawa raced to the finish one group behind. On seven (of 14) fairways and 11 greens in regulation, he posted -1.484 SG: Off-the-Tee, -0.595 SG: Approach, -0.294 SG: Around, and -2.374 SG: Tee-to-Green. The 30-year-old, who began the day two swings back of leader Dustin Johnson, outbalanced two birdies with six bogeys, including four on an outward, birdie-less nine, that ended his chances. For the week, he recorded progressively worse rounds of 66-68-69-74 and totaled 16 birdies against 13 bogeys while ranking 7th in SG: Approach (5.993) but 56th in SG: OTT (-0.720) and 57th in SG: Around (-0.723). The FSU product's streak of five straight top-5 finishes in majors came to a screeching halt, but was certainly in position for another before a forgettable Sunday at TPC Harding Park.

Playing out of the eighth-to-last twosome and making his major debut, World No. 53 Matthew Wolff twirled a 5-under-par 33-32=65 in the final round of the 102nd PGA Championship to conclude on 10-under 270, up nine places to T4, three short of champion Collin Morikawa, who carded a day- and week-tying-low 64.
After kicking off with 69-68-68, the California native began T13 on 5-under , one shy of the overnight top 10 and four back of leader Dustin Johnson. He found 10 (of 14) fairways and 13 greens in regulation, losing 0.786 strokes around but gaining 2.082 off-the-tee and 2.968 on approach. The 21-year-old squared two bogey-5s at holes 5 and 14, smothered by five birdies at holes 7-9, 16 and 18, and an eagle-3 at 10 from 12'11". He registered 1.538 putts per GIR and -0.028 SG: Putting, converting each of his birdie tries from inside of 11 feet and missing five putts from inside of eight feet, lowlighted by a missed par-saver at 14 from 41 inches. For the week, the Oklahoma State product totaled one eagle and 14 birdies versus six bogeys and ranked No. 1 in SG: TTG (14.106) though 66th in SG: Putting (-0.501). He improves to 14-for-19 on the season with two top 10s (2nd, Rocket Mortage as the 54-hole leader by three), and bumps 11 places to 33rd in the FedExCup standings.

Playing out of the final twosome, overnight leader and World No. 5 Dustin Johnson birdied two of his final three holes to salvage a 2-under-par 34-34=68 in the final round of the 102nd PGA Championship at TPC Harding Park, dipping one spot into a two-way T2 on 11-under 269, two back of champion Collin Morikawa, who fired a day- and week-tying-low 64 out of the penultimate twosome, and drops to 0-for-4 as the 54-hole leader/co-leader in a major.
After opening with 69-67-65, the 36-year-old led by one over two players, two clear of Morikawa. On seven (of 14) fairways and 11 greens in regulation, he gained 1.332 strokes approaching but lost 0.359 off-the-tee and eked out a 0.112 on-the-green. The Coastal Carolina product scribbled down four birdies at holes 1, 4, 16 and 18, taking some luster off with two bogeys at 3 (3-putt from 56'9") and 14. He posted 1.909 putts per GIR with 26 total putts, the latter aided by a pitch-in birdie-3 at 15 from 50 yards away, and birdie-4 from the fringe at 4 (12'5"). Johnson played holes 5-15 in birdie-less 1-over, before some late heroics brought him back to the podium, including a walk-off from 16'9". This was his 11th PGA, sixth top 10 and second straight runner-up, and overall, his 18th top 10 in 43 majors and third runner-up in his last five tries. The South Florida resident, who was vying for his second major title and second win of the season, jumps 10 spots to 15th in the FedExCup standings with the Playoffs starting in two weeks.

Playing out of the third-to-last twosome with two-time defender Brooks Koepka (74), World No. 28 Paul Casey tossed up a 4-under-par 33-33=66 in the final round of the 102nd PGA Championship to reach 11-under 269, up two spots into a two-way T2, two adrift of champion Collin Morikawa, who fired a day- and week-tying low 64 one group behind.
The 43-year-old, chasing his first major win in 64 tries, settles for his 10th top 10 and eclipses a previous-best T3 at the 2010 Open (St. Andrews). This was his 18th PGA and second top 10 (T10, 2016), and records his 10th runner-up finish in 274 events, first since solo 2nd at the 2019 AT&T Pebble Beach as the 54-hole leader by three. The Englishman improves to 10-for-12 on the season with five top 25s, first since a prior-season-best T11 at the WGC-Mexico, and is projected to jump 67 places (from 121 to 54) in the FedExCup standings with the Playoffs on the horizon. For the week, he posted rounds of 68-67-68-66 and totaled 16 birdies versus three bogeys and one double. On Sunday, the Scottsdale resident landed seven (of 14) fairways and 15 greens in regulation, gaining 1.800 strokes approaching and 2.321 tee-to-green. He squared a lone bogey-5 at 13, offset by five circles at 4, 5, 10, 14 and 16, all from inside of nine feet. Casey registered 1.667 putts per GIR and 0.932 SG: Putting with 29 total putts.

Playing out of the penultimate twosome and making his PGA Championship debut, World No. 12 Collin Morikawa painted a bogey-free, day- and week-tying-low, 6-under-par 33-31=64 in the final round of the 102nd PGA Championship in San Francisco to wrap on 13-under 267, up three places on the day and good for a two-shot victory over runners-up Paul Casey, who shot 66 out of the third-to-last twosome, and overnight leader Dustin Johnson (68).
The 23-year-old, a pre-tourney 33/1 outright, bags his first major title in just his second major, bettering a T35 at the 2019 U.S. Open at nearby Pebble Beach. He claims his third PGA TOUR title in 29 events (27 pro), all in come-from-behind fashion, and second of the season, second in his last three starts, joining a playoff win at the inaugural Workday Charity Open three starts ago, where he came from three back (solo 3rd) with 6-under 66 before defeating 54-hole leader Justin Thomas in extra time. Overall, the UC-Berkeley alum improves to 17-for-18 on the season with 11 top 25s and six top 10s, and is projected to bump four spots to 2nd in the FedExCup standings. For the week, he carded rounds of 69-69-65-64 and tallied one eagle and 18 birdies against seven bogeys, ranking No. 1 in SG: Putting at 8.076 (2.437 in R4). In the finale, the Los Angeles native striped 12 (of 14) fairways and hit 12 greens in regulation, losing 0.511 strokes approaching but gaining 2.383 off-the-tee and 0.945 around. He rang up four birdies at holes 3, 4, 10 and 14 (pitch-in from 54'2" away), adding a dramatic eagle-2 from 7'4" at the par-4 16th after driving the green.

World No. 16 Justin Rose birdied three of his final four holes toward a 3-under-par 35-32=67 in the final round of the 102nd PGA Championship in San Francisco to finish up on 9-under 271, currently T7, which is where he began.
This was the 40-year-old's 18th PGA and fourth top 10, first since a solo 4th five tries ago in 2015 (Whistling Straits). Overall, it was his 64th major and 17th top 10, second in his last three attempts. The Englishman improves to 5-for-11 on the season, ending a streak of three missed cuts, and nets his third top 25 and second top 10, joining a T3 at the Charles Schwab five starts ago. For the week, he recorded rounds of 66-68-70-67 and totaled 20 birdies, currently T2 in that stat, versus nine bogeys and one double. In R4, Rose overcame one bogey and one double with six birdies on nine (of 14) fairways and 12 greens in regulation. He lost 1.490 strokes around-the-green, but gained 0.236 off-the-tee, 1.209 on approach, and 2.328 on-the-green.

World No. 69 Joel Dahmen walked off with birdie-3 en route to a 3-under-par 35-32=67 in the final round of the 102nd PGA Championship at TPC Harding Park to wrap on 8-under 272, up three spots to T10 with play still in progress.
This was the Clarkston, Washington, native's second PGA after a T71 last season at Bethpage. Overall, it was his fourth major and second cash, ending a streak of two missed cuts after last year's PGA. The University of Washington product improves to 17-for-20 on the season with 10 top 25s and if the top 10 holds, would be his fifth, first since a tied season-best T5 at Bay Hill prior to the shutdown. For the week, he carded rounds of 69-68-68-67 and tallied one eagle and 17 birdies against six bogeys, one double and one triple. On Sunday, the 32-year-old hit 10 (of 14) fairways and conjured nine greens in regulation, losing strokes on approach (-1.145) and around (-0.731), but gaining 1.561 off-the-tee and 2.640 on-the-green. He squared an opening bogey-5 at hole 1 before playing his final 17 in blemish-free 4-under, circling 6, 11, 12 and 18, three from between 10 and 43 feet.

This was the Californian's fourth PGA and second top 25, second straight after T16 last year. Overall, it's his eighth top 25 in 12 majors and if the top 10 holds, would be his sixth, third in his last five.
