Brooks Koepka claimed his first European Tour victory at the Turkish Airlines Open after carding five birdies and an eagle en route to a final-round 7-under-par 65.
Koepka played in AJGA events for three years, from 2005-07. He compiled six top-10 finishes including a victory at the 2005 Ashworth Junior at Highland Oaks. Following his victory, Koepka competed in AJGA Invitationals such as the AJGA Boys Championship, FJ Invitational, The PING Invitational and Polo Golf Junior Classic.
Koepka continued his career at Florida State University where he earned three victories and became a three-time All-American. He turned pro in 2012 and earned his PGA TOUR card in 2014 after posting two top-five finishes at the Frys.com Open and at the U.S. Open.
Christina Kim earned her first LPGA Tour victory since 2005 at the Lorena Ochoa Invitational presented by Banamex. Kim fired rounds of 65-69-68-71—273 to force a playoff against Shanshan Feng, which she won in two holes.
Kim competed twice at the Polo Golf Junior Classic (2001 and 2002), advancing to the second-round of match play each time. The highlight of her junior career came at the 2001 U.S. Girls’ Junior, where she advanced to the Round of 16.
John Hahn made waves in the golf world after posting a 58 in the fourth round of European Tour Q School. The former Kent State All-American started his round with five consecutive birdies on his way to his 12-under-par 58.
Hahn played in three AJGA events in 2007: the AJGA Boys Championship, the Rolex Tournament of Champions and the Wyndham Cup, where he represented the East.
