Brooks Koepka wins CJ Cup, moves to No

Brooks Koepka locked down the No. 1 spot in the men's world golf rankings with his first PGA Tour win of the season in South Korea on Sunday, aided by a thrilling chip-in birdie down the stretch. "I've hit a lot of greens over the last two days, which has been nice and I just need to continue that". "I made some long putts coming down the stretch".

"I just kind of hang in there, wait for my holes, I know I'm going to have some good looks and when I do, you've got to capitalise on them". "Brooks obviously just made some clutch shots down the stretch".

Koepka, who has never looked back since earning a step up to the European Tour after winning the Scottish Challenge in Aviemore in 2013, will topple Dustin Johnson as the highest-ranked player in the men's game when the standings are updated this morning. I felt I rolled the ball really well today and I kept hitting lip after lip. It's something I'm so excited [about] right now, you have no idea.

The US Open and PGA Championship champion also shrugged off the suggestion that the pressure might get to him, with six others, led by Spain's Rafa Cabrera Bello, tied for fourth place on eight under, and in hot pursuit.

Piercy, looking for his first individual win on the PGA Tour since the Barbasol Championship in July 2015, started with a birdie, but needed to make birdies on his last two holes to ensure he finished on even-par.

The last time that happened was in 1997, when Ernie Els, Tom Lehman and Tiger Woods each rose to the top position.

The $9.5 million tournament is the second in the PGA Tour's three-week Asian swing culminating in the WGC-HSBC Champions next week in Shanghai. Trying to become the oldest victor in tour history, the 64-year-old Haas birdied the par-5 16th and 18th holes to get to 11-under 133 on The Country Club of Virginia's James River Course. The 54-year-old Austin finished with an 11-under total for three rounds at The Country Club of Virginia's James River Course.

Langer, the defending tournament champion and season-points leader, birdied the final hole for a 70.

The American closed out his day with consecutive birdies at the 17th and the 18th.
