Brooks Koepka will get another chance this week to lock up special temporary membership on the PGA Tour

The former Florida State star shared medalist honors at the Monday qualifier for this week’s Zurich Classic, shooting 8-under 64 at LaTour Golf Club. 

It’s an important week for Koepka, who is seven FedEx Cup points shy of earning special temporary membership, which would allow him to receive unlimited sponsor exemptions for the rest of the season. He has 271 points after making eight starts (and burning all seven of his sponsor exemptions).

To earn the necessary points, Koepka will need to finish T-50 or better this week at TPC Louisiana. He hasn’t played since a T-36 at the Valero Texas Open
