Brooks Koepka is one of the biggest names in golf, shooting to fame with a scintillating run at the Majors from 2017 to 2019. The American tuned pro in 2012, opting to begin his career in Europe until earning his PGA Tour card for the 2014/15 season. 

From there, he went from strength to strength, establishing himself as the game's dominant force, before injuries and a loss of form saw him struggle.

He made the move to LIV Golf, believing he couldn't match the PGA Tour stars due to his struggles, but he came roaring back when fit and confident in 2023.

It's often said a golfer's career is judged on how many Majors they win, so how many does Koepka have? 

How Many Majors Has Brooks Koepka Won?

Koepka has won five Majors, the first four all in a remarkable three-year run in which he established himself as the best player in the world. He captured his first Major at the 2017 US Open at Erin Hills. 

It was an unusually low-scoring affair at America's national championship, as a final-round 67 saw Koepka come from one behind to claim a four-shot victory over Brian Harman and Hideki Matsuyama. Incredibly, he would win his second Major at the 2018 US Open at Shinnecock Hills, becoming the first player to defend his title since Curtis Strange in 1989.

Koepka wouldn't have to wait long for his third Major, holding off a certain Tiger Woods less than two months later to win the PGA Championship at Bellerive Country Club.

His then survived a late scare in 2019 to successfully defend his PGA Championship at Bethpage Black and capture his fourth Major.

Then came injury, loss of confidence, a move to LIV Golf and insightful appearance on the Netflix 'Full Swing' docu-series before he finally found his way back.

He looked all out the winner at the 2023 Masters before he choked away the lead, in his own words, to Jon Rahm, but he insisted he had found out why and would use that the next time he was in contention.

And that next time came in the very next Major just a month later when he looked like the strutting, confident Koepka of old as he won the 2023 PGA Championship - lifting the Wanamaker Trophy for a third time.

Koepka started the final round at Oak Hill just a shot ahead of Viktor Hovland and Corey Conners but never flinched, carding a three-under 67 to beat Hovland and Scottie Scheffler by two.

He's now just the 20th player ever to win five Majors, joining the likes of the great Seve Ballesteros, Peter Thomson and Byron Nelson in the all-time list so will already go down as one of the best around - and he's not done yet.

"It's crazy. I try not to think of it right now," Koepka said after winning at Oak Hill. "I do care about it. It's just tough to really grasp the situation kind of while you're still in it, I think.

"When I'm retired and I can look back with Jena and my son and kind of reflect on all that stuff, that will be truly special, but right now I'm trying to collect as many of these things as I can. We'll see how it goes."

Brooks Koepka Major Record

Understandably, Koepka became known as something of a Major specialist during his assault to the top of the men's game, and after a down year with injuries he was right back to form. As well as his five victories, he has a number of top-10 finishes since his first appearance at the 2012 US Open. 

In fact, in 2019, he finished in the top-five at all four Majors, picking up one win. He is yet to win The Masters or The Open but has come close at both and will no doubt be keen to add them to his roll of honour and complete the career Grand Slam.

Here is his record in the four Majors:

The Masters
Appearances: 8
Best finish: T2 (2019, 2023)

The PGA Championship
Appearances: 11
Best finish: 1 (2018, 2019, 2023)

The US Open
Appearances: 9
Best finish: 1 (2017, 2018)

The Open
Appearances: 8
Best finish: T4 (2019)
