Watching Brooks Koepka plod his way around Bethpage Black with a commanding lead likely lulled you to sleep Saturday afternoon. So why should Sunday be any different?

Here are four reasons why Sunday's final round at the PGA Championship, the last day of major golf for close to a month, is still worth watching:

Witnessing greatness

Enjoy it. Koepka is putting on a brilliant display of golf that fans very rarely get to witness. Don't complain about how boring the tournament is. Rather, relish the opportunity to watch one of the game's best players put on a performance that will be revered for years to come.

Do you wish you could go back and watch Tiger Woods dominate the 2000 U.S. Open again? Ever want to relive one of Jack Nicklaus' 18 major wins? Koepka likely won't live up either player's legacy, but for now, he's the best golfer on the planet and is worth your attention Sunday afternoon.

In order to have a chance at winning the PGA Championship, all of Koepka's chasers will need to play extremely aggressively on Sunday. That starts with Dustin Johnson, who will be blasting drivers all over the property and flag hunting on every hole.

Johnson won't be the only player looking to shoot a 7-under round while hoping Koepka drops a few shots. Hideki Matsuyama, Xander Schauffele, Adam Scott, and Jordan Spieth are other superstars who have a chance to post a low number with some fireworks along the way.

An unfamiliar name

One glimpse at the leaderboard and you'll find yourself asking: "Who the hell is Jazz Janewattananond?"

While you can try to pronounce the 23-year-old's last name at your own risk, the 72nd-ranked player in the world is worth the watch. The Thai golfer spends the majority of his time on the Asian Tour, where he has three wins, and he's dabbled on the European circuit as well. His trip to Bethpage Black is only his second major championship appearance after he missed the cut at The Open last year.

Plus, his extremely powerful swing is mesmerizing:

Masters invites

The Wanamaker Trophy is likely out of reach for anyone not named Brooks Koepka, but there are invitations to the Masters on the line. Any player who finishes in the top four - including ties - and isn't already invited will receive a special letter offering a chance to play at Augusta National in 2020.

Luke List, Harold Varner III, and Janewattananond currently sit in a tie for second and do not have spots at the Masters locked up. They could also punch their tickets with a win on the PGA Tour or by climbing into the top 50 in the world golf rankings. But a top-four result at the PGA Championship is well within reach for all of them and is yet another storyline to follow Sunday.
