Brooks’ Brilliance Betters the Field

/, News/Brooks’ Brilliance Betters the Field
After another dazzling and dominant display last weekend from Koepka, Major title number 4 was added to his, already, stellar resume. Finishing off Day 2 with a commanding lead, there seemed to be no doubt in anyone’s mind that Koepka was going back to back as PGA Champion. It was only for a flurry of bogeys on the final back 9 that made the finish remotely interesting. It was, however, incredibly short-lived. A bogey for Johnson left Koepka walking up the 18th hole with a two shot lead. One which was never surrendered. Koepka became the first ever golfer to retain his title at the US Open and the PGA Championship in the same year. And adds his name to a prestigious list of golfers with 4 or more Majors before their 30th birthday.

 

The question now, just how good can Koepka possibly be?

In his first 8 major starts, he has won 4 of them. Going back to back, twice. Now World No.1 and showing only signs of improvement. Koepka, physically, is the embodiment of the modern day athlete. His gym workouts and how he prepares his body physically have become the talk of the tour. This has undoubtedly helped with his rise to the top, leaving him as one of the biggest hitters on tour. But there appears to be another attribute, one which can make Koepka truly rival the greats of the game. His Mentality. Constantly turning any slight negative or perceived negative into another chip on his shoulder. It allows Koepka to get to a place mentally, one which we haven’t seen since Tiger Woods. He seems to thrive off the hostile atmosphere, similar to Bethpage last weekend, along with doubters comments which brings his game to another level. Many golfers on tour have commented on his mentality and its one attribute that just cannot be thought. Koepka has made it known he wants to reach double figures in Majors and with the way he is playing, its hard to doubt him.
