Brooks Koepka shot a 4-under-par 66 on Sunday at Bellerive Country Club to win the PGA Championship, his second major championship victory this year and third ever.

Koepka also won the 2018 U.S. Open, joining Jack Nicklaus, Ben Hogan, Gene Sarazen and Tiger Woods as the only players to win the U.S. Open and PGA Championship in the same year.

[post_ads]The latter came close to preventing that feat, as Woods put together another fiery rally to challenge Koepka for the victory.

Woods shot a 6-under-par 64 to finish in second place, marking his second consecutive top-10 finish in a major after tying for sixth place in July's British Open. Woods' final-round 64 was his lowest score in the last round of a major in his career.

"What he did at Shinnecock -- just bombing it -- and he did the same thing here," Woods told reporters about Koepka's recent performances. "I played with him during a practice round and he was literally hitting it 340, 350 in the air. When a guy is doing that and hitting it straight, and as good of a putter as he is, it's tough to beat."

Australia's Adam Scott also challenged Koepka in the final round. Scott carded a 67 on Sunday and jockeyed with Koepka and Woods throughout the back nine. Scott finished in third at 13-under-par.

American Stewart Cink (-11) and Spain's Jon Rahm (-11) rounded out the top five in a tie for the fourth position.

Justin Thomas, who won the PGA Championship last year, carded a 10-under-par for a share of sixth place. Jordan Spieth's slow start and Rickie Fowler's disappointing finish led to a tie at 12th place, with both sitting at 8-under-par. Rory McIlroy (-2) ended in a tie for 50th.
