With the premiere of the new Netflix documentary about the PGA Tour, “Full Swing,” many fans have been wondering the same thing about Brooks Koepka and his game.
The four-time major champion departed for the LIV Golf League the previous year after making some dubious remarks at the U.S. Open in June.
“I do not comprehend. Well, I’m trying to concentrate on the U.S. Open. I really don’t get it. The discussions have become old to me. I’m sick of it all,” he said. “As I said, you guys are casting a dark shadow on the U.S. Open. I believe that is terrible. It’s a terrible scenario, so for once I do feel awful for them. You’re talking about an incident that occurred last week, but we’re here to play.
Koepka’s record is uneven since joining the circuit supported by Saudi Arabia’s Public Investment Fund. He won the Jeddah stop of LIV, but in four of his other five races, he failed to place in the top 10.
Koepka most recently tied for 46th at the Saudi International and missed the cut by two strokes (74-78) in the International Series Oman, an Asian Tour competition.
Koepka highlighted his lack of confidence and ability to compete with the greatest players in the world on the second episode of “Full Swing.”
For the better part of the past year and a half, he said, “I’ve had all these questions.” Is he ever going to play golf the same? Will I ever be the same again? And I still have no idea where I am.
Later on, he said, “I’ll be honest with you. Every week, I can’t compete with these men.
It’s difficult to exclude the likelihood that he departed for LIV because of that precise notion since the league is full of veteran players and untested fresh potential.
Alan Shipnuck asserts that the former world No. 1 may be searching for a way to rejoin the Tour, however.
There are several rumours that Brooks Koepka is experiencing buyer’s remorse. In a Q&A earlier this week, Shipnuck wrote, “He accepted the money while his fragile body was still being repaired, and in private he has revealed to others he wasn’t sure whether he would ever be totally well again. But, Koepka is reportedly reconsidering his career decision and is feeling frisky at the moment.
If Koepka’s health has advanced to the point where he may be able to recapture the form he shown from 2017–19, his comeback might be fantastic for the Tour. Nonetheless, his departure could have been sufficient to sever ties with not just Jay Monahan but also the rest of the team.
Does Monahan want to create a precedent wherein disgruntled players could return with little to no resistance?
