A Koepka-Harman Duel
Koepka revealed he received a motivational phone call from the world No. 1, Dustin Johnson, the night before he became a first-time major winner.
“Dustin called me on Saturday night and told me to take one shot at a time, just to stay patient,” Koepka said. “It was a case of ‘just keep doing what you’re doing, you’re going to win the thing. Just don’t get ahead of yourself’.
“Because we played a Tuesday practice round together, he watched me play. I thought I played pretty solid on Tuesday. He said he was pulling for me and just hang in there. I felt like that has been the thing lately with me, why I haven’t really played that well - I’ve been trying to win so badly. I felt like I underachieved. And the more patient that I can become the more times I’ll put myself in this situation,” added Koepka.
