Brooks Koepka was able to shoot a 66 en route to winning the Waste Management Phoenix Open. It was his first tour victory.

Hideki Matsuyama had a chance to send the tourney to a playoff, but missed his left-to-right breaking putt. However, he did record a fairway eagle on the first.

Martin Laird was tied with Koepka after his birdie on the par 5 15th, but he stumbled into the clubhouse as he recorded a bogey on the drivable 17th and he doubled on the 18th after driving into the drink.

The shot of the tournament had to go to Francesco Molinari who recorded an ace on the signature 16th hole.
