Coolest part of Chase Koepka getting into Travelers was who cheered him on at Monday qualifier
Qualifying for a PGA tour on Monday is more difficult than ever. It's impressive to do this in a playoff. It is a topic that will be talked about for a lifetime when your four-time brother, the main winner, cheers you on.
Chase Koepka scored this hat-trick on Monday when he shot five under par 67, emerged from a 5v2 playoff and celebrated with his older brother Brooks Koepka, who flew RBC's legacy to Connecticut after Sunday's seventh place in Connecticut .
Brooks Koepka photographed several outlets, including the Connecticut PGA, after Chase's round at the Ridge Country Club in Ellington, Connecticut. They were wearing a black hat, a t-shirt and red shorts.
Since Brooks is already registered with the Travelers, the 26-year-old Chase will play at his third event in the PGA Tour season. It is the first time that he qualified on Monday. This is even more daunting these days as the spots have been reduced from the normal four to just two. Chase entered the fields of the Shriners Open in autumn in Las Vegas and the CJ Cup in South Korea due to exemptions for sponsors, made the cut and finished 67th and 46th respectively.
After a college career with four victories at the University of South Florida, Chase became a professional in 2016 and mainly played overseas with little fanfare. He and Brooks teamed up to finish seventh at the Zurich Classic 2017 in New Orleans.
Brooks Koepka's goal last week, which included completing 65 in Harbor Town, was his best since the Tour Championship. He was 32nd at Colonial in the first week of the tour after the coronavirus break.
