Tiger Woods challenged eventual winner Brooks Koepka throughout Sunday's final round of the PGA Championship, but there were clearly no hard feelings in the immediate aftermath.

As PGA of America shared, Koepka and girlfriend Jena Sims hugged Woods following the thrilling round:

Koepka finished 16 under par and two strokes ahead of Woods, who ended up in second place after shooting a sparkling 64 Sunday. Koepka was the leader entering the final round and a model of consistency with four straight rounds under 70, but Woods' continued comeback from back surgeries and time off was the primary storyline in St. Louis.

The story ended with Koepka lifting the trophy and sharing a hug with the 14-time major winner.
