Brooks Copeck, who has won two of the last three specials, held the lead of the first round leader with Bryson De Shambo, while triple champion Phil Mickelson had a shot on Thursday.
Koepka, who missed last year’s Masters because of a wrist injury, used incredible power and laser irons to place a score of six below 66 to put him in first place with Bryson From Chambo, a few inches from the fence.
The American Copecka, who did not finish in the top 10 in three starts with the masters, ran a bird with four holes in the 12th inning to get ahead, but had to accept some of the leadership after DeChambo closed with four consecutive birds.
De Shambo, who played in two groups in front of Koepka and almost equalized the score with the thirteenth game, entered the club with direct leadership, but his approach on the 18th crashed into a mast and moved away from a few centimeters per bird.
