Brooks Koepka will become world number one for the first time on Monday after the American fended off a game Gary Woodland to earn a four-stroke victory at the PGA Tour's CJ Cup in South Korea on Sunday.

It's been one hell of a run for Koepka, who in the past year-plus has won two U.S. Opens and a PGA Championship that featured him staring down none other than Tiger Woods for the victory.

Dustin Johnson is now No. 1, Koepka is second and Thomas third. Ian Poulter, who shot 68 Saturday, was tied for second place with second-round leader Scott Piercy, who had a 72. "My caddie even said right before I hit the shot, you know, 'This is the one you need to hole, ' or 'You're going to make this.' He never really says that, but this time he was right, which was nice".

Woodland bounced back with two straight birdies at the 12th and 13th, but Koepka coolly matched the feat. Woodland started the day five strokes behind Koepka, who was only 1-under after nine, but Woodland pulled level after making six birdies in seven holes on the front nine. He added three more birdies at 14, 17 and 18 to close out a bogey-free round of 5-under and take the 4-stroke lead.

After skipping the first two stops of the new season, Koepka looked out of sorts on the southern island of Jeju with a first-round 71 on Thursday but was back to his best the following day with a 65.

"Everything I've done this year it's been working".

"Didn't have the greatest of lies and then hit that left and the chip was probably 25 yards", Koepka said of the chip.

Here's what's unusual about Koepka: He's won only five PGA Tour events, but three of those have been majors. "You're not going to see any emotion just because I'm so focused, but I'm enjoying it".

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.
