MEMPHIS, Tenn. — Defending champion Brooks Koepka matched his career best with an 8-under 62 to take a two-stroke lead over Rickie Fowler and Brendon Todd at the FedEx St. Jude Invitational.
Koepka had nine birdies and a bogey on a windy day at TPC Southwind in the World Golf Championship event, a week after missing the cut in Minnesota in the 3M Open.
Koepka also will defend his PGA Championship title next week at TPC Harding Park in San Francisco.
His coaches helped Koepka realize how much he was favoring his injured left knee. He responded with his best round yet at TPC Southwind.
