SAN FRANCISCO — Bogey, bogey, bogey. This was not what Brooks Koepka had in mind when he was thinking about three in a row at the PGA Championship.
Now, if he's going to become the first player to three-peat at the PGA since the 1920s, he'll have to win his first in come-from-behind fashion.
It's all because of those three straight 5s he made -- on the par-4 13th, 14th and 15th holes at chilly Harding Park.
One bad swing and a couple of bad breaks led to the bogeys that undermined what was an otherwise solid day. He bounced back with a pair of birdies down the stretch to shoot 1-under 69 and finish at 7 under.
He's two shots tied for fourth, two shots behind leader Dustin Johnson.
