Brooks Koepka celebrates fifth major win at Florida Panthers, Miami Heat playoff games

Brooks Koepka is making his rounds following his PGA Championship win.

Days after winning his fifth major championship at the Oak Hill Country Club in New York, Koepka returned to his home state of Florida to take in some playoff hockey and basketball and cheer on his local teams.

Koepka was on hand at FLA Live Arena on Monday night to see the Florida Panthers take a commanding 3-0 series lead over the Carolina Hurricanes in the Eastern Conference final. He donned a Panthers jersey and received a loud applause from the crowd while hoisting the Wanamaker Trophy, which is awarded to the PGA Championship winner.

Koepka got the party going Tuesday in Miami, where he sat courtside at the Kaseya Center for Game 4 of the Eastern Conference finals between the Heat and Boston Celtics. Like the Panthers, the Heat have a 3-0 lead on their opponent.
