A user shared a moment of the match and wrote, "Brooks Koepka hitting Michael Block with "I hear you're buying drinks" after winning the PGA Championship is great banter"

Another user wrote, "The circuit that does not receive OWGR points, puts on “exhibitions” littered with “washed up” players that “no one cares” about, and the one the “golf media” doesn’t talk about…

Yes THAT circuit, LIV, now has two out of the last three major winners. Congrats to Brooks Koepka," wrote another user.

"Brooks Koepka is an all-time great. What a unique career. Wasn't good enough to go to Florida. Cut his teeth on the Challenge Tour. Broke through late. Wins 4 majors in 3 years. Loses game, confidence. Injuries. Beefs. LIV. Blows the Masters. Now, BACK. As many majors as Seve," added another user.
