Three-time major victor Koepka can reach top spot in the rankings for the first time with victory. He is a 10/1 pick, and coming off arguably his best season as a professional. "We were fortunate to see that play itself out over the weekend previous year".
The world No 3 got back on track with birdies at 12 and 14, and he closed to within one of Piercy with a brilliant eagle at the last that boosted Koepka's hopes of the win he needs to take him to the top of the world rankings.
The tournament's $9.5 million purse trails only The Players Championship, the World Golf Championships and the majors on the PGA Tour schedule.

It would be the first time for him, the eighth time for an American and the 23rd time overall for a new No. 1 player in the world to be crowned. "We're definitely going to have a big following, and it won't be for Brooks or myself, that's for sure", Thomas said.
"Yeah the greens have a lot of slope on them", Thomas said. We've seen how wind can suspend play on British Open courses, as well-when the ball is being blown around on the greens. If you want to use some of the slopes to get close to the holes, or if you want use some to get into the spot where you want to putt from, but the hardest part is that you just have to play smart.
Leishman won the CIMB Classic in Malaysia last Sunday by five strokes, closing with a 7-under 65 to match Thomas' 2015 tournament record of 26-under 262.

"It was a different golf course than it was yesterday, you were able to take advantage of these par 5s", said Koepka, who opened in 71 on Day 1.
