In only his third start of the 2015 PGA Tour season, the 2014 European Tour Rookie of the Year award winner, Brooks Koepka entered this final round three behind the 54-hole lead. Koepka stayed within earshot of the lead all day until a holed 50-foot eagle putt on the 15th hole pushed him into a tie for the lead for the first time all week. While his playing competitors faltered, Koepka remained resolute, parring the final three hole to win by one.
This is Koepka's first PGA Tour victory, making him the early frontrunner for 2015 Rookie of the Year honors.
Koepka relied on a full range of FJ gear including FJ Performance Apparel, DryJoys Tour golf shoes and the Pure Touch Limited golf glove.

Former Oklahoma State standout and US Amateur Champion, Peter Uihlein shot a final round of 68 to capture his first professional career victory at the Madeira Islands Open in Santo Da Serra, Portugal. Beginning the day one stroke behind leader Mark Tullo, Ulhlein opened with a bogey falling further behind. However, Uihlein fought back to even par for the front nine and continued to make four birdies in his final eight holes to reach 15 under par. The total gave him a two stroke victory over fellow FJ Staffers, Morten Orum Madsen and Mark Tullo.
Uihlein was ready for any conditions the seaside golf course could conjure in full line FJ Performance Apparel, DryJoys Tour golf shoes and the StaSof golf glove.
Uihlein stated post round, "To do it playing well on the back nine coming down the stretch is sweet. ... I just knuckled down, I guess. It was all putting that did it today; I was just trying to free up and they started to roll in, so it was nice."
Peter also spoke of his decision to join the European Tour instead of testing his game on the American circuit, "You grow up quick out here and that was the main reason I came over...It's been a good process so far and hopefully I can keep going."
This is Peter's third top ten in seven European Tour starts this season. The win also gives Uihlein European Tour Status through the 2014 season.
