Just consider Brooks Koepka’s last 12 months. © Provided by Golf Channel A year ago this week Koepka was the No. 1 player in the world, hadn’t finished outside the top five in five consecutive major starts and was the game’s most intimidating figure coming down the 18th fairway with a lead. He tied for 34th that week in Abu Dhabi and wouldn’t crack the top 10 for six months. There are countless ways to quantify how badly things went for Koepka in 2020, but the famously no-nonsense player only pays attention to a single statistic. “I just care about wins,...

And especially when that finish was well behind Dustin Johnson, the player he was once close with but threw a jab at before the final round of the PGA Championship. “Yeah, I’m not really excited right now. Whoo, seventh,” Koepka said after finishing T-7. “I don’t know what else to say to that. I’m not too happy. Yeah, I mean, it’s disappointing.” While his former confidante...

    The new generation of rising golf stars features more friends than foes. It’s not uncommon to see Jordan Spieth and his buddies Justin Thomas, Rickie Fowler and Smylie Kaufman all over each other’s Instagram stories. But there’s one rivalry in the up-and-coming generation, and that’s between Brooks Koepka and Bryson DeChambeau. Maybe it’s more of a feud — call it whatever you’d like. But two of the PGA Tour’s best players have had a few attention-drawing spats. They enter the 2020 Masters with DeChambeau ranked sixth in the world and Koepka ranked 12th, and before the week is over at Augusta National, they may be asked about each other once or twice more (or in a made-for-television godsend, maybe they’ll wind up in the same group on the weekend). Here’s a look back at the notable moments in Koepka and DeChambeau’s relationship (so far). MORE: A history of Tiger...

Koepka, who during the break had a second stem-cell treatment on his injured left knee and a cortisone injection in his hip, tied for 28th at Shadow Creek, and it was looking like another slow start last week at the Vivint Houston Open after he opened with rounds of 72-70. © Provided by Golf Channel What followed, though, was more Brooks-like. Koepka closed with back-to-back rounds of 65 to tie for fifth, his best finish on the PGA Tour since July 2019 in Memphis. But...

    For a feud that began over slow play, the Bryson DeChambeau-Brooks Koepka rivalry sure has a long shelf life. Since it seemingly began in January of 2019, when Koepka lamented DeChambeau’s meticulous pace on the golf course, the two American golfers have traded barbs back and forth. While DeChambeau mostly finds Koepka’s digs at him to be funny, he admitted there is a line but has held off from confronting Koepka about it. “There are times where it’s like, ‘O.K., dude, it’s too far,’” DeChambeau told Sports Illustrated. “I’ve gone up to him a couple of times and tried to talk to him. And there have been times where, you know, I was gonna go talk to him when he said something, and I’m just like, ‘You know, it’s not even worth it. It’s not even worth my time to try and create something.’ ” DeChambeau has often let...

    LAS VEGAS (AP) — Brooks Koepka is ready to get back to golf, announcing Wednesday he will play next week in the CJ Cup at Shadow Creek in Las Vegas. Koepka has not played since he missed the cut in the Wyndham Championship on Aug. 14.

On Thursday, Sims posted a photo of herself modeling a summer look on Instagram, captioning the post, “Georgia peaches are the sweetest ????❤️.” Sims’ swimsuit snap unsurprisingly caught the internet’s attention, including Koepka, who dropped the remark, “Peach rating szn,” in the comments.  Sims, who was raised in Georgia and has been linked to Koepka since 2017, responded with a kissy face emoji. Koepka withdrew from The Northern Trust Open this week with lingering knee issues and will miss the season-ending PGA Tour playoffs.

    BOSTON (CBS) — The best golfers in the world will be in Norton this week, competing in The Northern Trust at TPC Boston. Brooks Koepka, though, will not be among them. The 30-year-old on Wednesday withdrew from this week’s tournament — the first of three FedEx Cup Playoff events — due to “a lingering hip and knee injury” that have been bothering him for some time. The withdrawal ends his Tour season but does give him the opportunity to try to regain his health in time for the the U.S. Open at Winged Foot in mid-September and the Masters in mid-November.

To see somebody’s life to go and then you watch it multiple, multiple times, it’s tough. I get chills right now just even thinking about it. What happened is uncalled for.” Video of Floyd’s arrest quickly went viral...
    Brooks Koepka is one of the biggest names in the field at this week’s 3M Open, just as he was a year ago. The bomber is currently ranked sixth in the world and will look to defend his PGA Championship in two weeks. He has the credentials of one the game’s current greats, but doesn’t look like one, at the moment. Koepka has played in four tournaments since the PGA Tour resumed play, and he has finished in the top 30 just once. He is still on the outside looking in at the FedEx Cup playoffs, and needs to find points in a hurry to qualify for the postseason, which starts in late August. “I just need to play good. I’ve played so bad lately,” Koepka said. “Just trying to find things. Every week I feel like the results aren’t there, but it’s getting better and better. My good shots...

In a pre-tournament news conference at the 3M Open, Koepka said his troublesome left knee felt as good as it has “in a really long” time Sunday at Muirfield Village, when he shot a final-round 80 and tied for 62nd at the Memorial. Koepka said he can walk uphill without any discomfort but that “downhill is a pain. It’s where the patellar (tendon) extends, and just trying to adjust going down hills. Sunday was the best it’s felt. I don’t see it being an issue.” At No. 154 in the FedExCup standings, Koepka needs to...

Brooks Koepka on recurring left knee issue: Walking downhills a pain The knee simply isn’t progressing, Brooks Koepka is the first to admit, at least from a clinical standpoint. An MRI last week, before the start of play at the Memorial, revealed this unfortunate diagnosis on his left knee, and it’s something the Jupiter, Florida, resident has known for weeks. © Provided by Golfweek But Kopeka insisted on Tuesday, ahead of this week’s PGA Tour stop at TPC Twin Cities for the 3M Open, that it feels a bit better. And the four-time major winner also wants something else spelled out perfectly clear — he will not consider the knee an excuse for his recent string of poor...

Sports Brooks Koepka, months after re-tearing his patella tendon, said his knee hasn’t improved at all after a brutal showing at the Memorial Tournament. (Andy Lyons/Getty Images) Koepka fired an 8-over 80 in the final round of the Memorial Tournament at Muirfield Village in Ohio, bringing him to 12-over on the week and near the bottom of the leaderboard among players who made the cut.  To make things worse, Koepka’s knee is apparently still a major problem, too. He underwent an MRI on Monday, and said his knee is no better than it was in October. “Just wanted to...

Last fall that knee required a stem-cell treatment for a partially torn patella tendon. After slipping at the CJ Cup in October, Koepka shut it down and didn’t play again for three months. The world No. 6’s results this season haven’t been up to his lofty standards, with only one top-10 in eight starts.

However, he will not be grouped with Bryson DeChambeau, the winner in Detroit two weeks ago who has unintentionally become somewhat of a rival to Koepka. Instead, Koepka draws the No. 1-ranked player in the world, Rory McIlroy, and five-time Memorial champion Tiger Woods, who will play on Tour for the first time since the Genesis Invitational in February.

That’s when he posted a meme widely interpreted as a steroids-themed needling of Bryson DeChambeau, whose bulked-up physique and huge drives have drawn more gasps and raised eyebrows than a streaker in church. Koepka’s tweet did not mention DeChambeau, but it didn’t have to. Readers decided who it was aimed at. There were those who relished the prospect...

The world No. 6 and four-time major winner birdied five of his last seven holes in the second round – and came within an inch of jarring his approach from 92 yards on the 14th for another birdie – to move to 1-under 143 after rounds of 74-69. But when the storm-delayed second round concluded under bright skies Saturday morning, the cut fell at 2 under. “I never give up, never...

He was 4 over and had just missed a short birdie try at Muirfield Village’s par-5 11th hole. But Koepka suddenly flipped the switch, rattling off five birdies over his final seven holes Friday, his final one coming from long range at the par-4 18th to give himself a fighting chance of sticking around for two more rounds at Jack’s Place. “Yeah, I mean, that's what you've got to do,” Koepka said. “I never...

    Bryson DeChambeau’s divisive rise in the golf world has now been acknowledged by his biggest rival. The 26-year-old DeChambeau has taken the sport by storm since the PGA Tour’s return from the coronavirus shutdown, capped by a three-shot victory at last week’s Rocket Mortgage Classic in Detroit. It’s not so much the success that has garnered DeChambeau all this attention, though, as much as it is the 40-pound weight gain and booming drives that have accompanied it. That has led some to speculate there is more than just protein shakes behind DeChambeau’s bulked-up figure. DeChambeau did not help matters when he snapped at a CBS cameraman on Saturday for filming his angry reaction to a poor bunker shot. Enter Brooks Koepka, who took both these storylines and seemingly found the perfect Kenny Powers GIF for which to subtweet DeChambeau.
