As for Koepka, the 33-year-old golfer is currently on cloud nine, having won his 3rd Wanamaker Trophy. He defeated some of the biggest names in golf including Scottie Scheffler and Viktor Hovland. Dustin Johnson on the other hand didn’t have such a great major and ended up in T55 position. However, both of them had some great fun watching the Panthers vs Hurricanes game in Florida together.
