This article is part of our Weekly Recap series.The knocks on Brooks Koepka have been that he doesn't look like he cares and that he shows up only for the majors. As far as knocks go, you could do a lot worse.
Koepka may have looked expressionless for most of the week in South Korea, but he emerged with a win – in a non-major – and also a little something extra. When he captured the CJ Cup @ Nine Bridges by four strokes over red-hot Gary Woodland on Sunday, he ascended to the top of the world rankings for the first time.
Koepka thus becomes the fourth golfer to be ranked No. 1 this year, overtaking good buddy Dustin Johnson. Justin Rose and Justin Thomas, who could've regained the top spot but finished far back in a tie for 36th, were the others to be ranked first this year.
