Koepka locks up PGA Tour card for 2014-15 season


Brooks Koepka’s tie for fourth place on Sunday at the U.S. Open locked up the 24-year-old’s PGA Tour card for the 2014-15 season and provided a clearer picture of his summer schedule.

According to his manager, Blake Smith with Hambric Sports Management, Koepka plans to take the next two weeks off before picking up his European Tour schedule at the French Open and Scottish Open, with an eye toward qualifying for the Open Championship via the Race to Dubai points list or a victory.

Koepka will likely return to the United States for the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational – if he moves inside the top 50 in the Official World Golf Ranking (he is currently 70th) – PGA Championship and he may play the Wyndham Championship.

The only way he could qualify for the FedEx Cup playoffs is if he were to win a Tour event, otherwise he would likely return to Europe to play his minimum number of starts (13, he currently has five).
