Brooks Koepka returned to competition today with a 2-over-par 33-41=74 in his opening round of the Masters.
We last saw him at Bay Hill where he had to withdraw during his final round with discomfort stemming from a dislocated rib. It appeared early today that he was overcoming as Koepka covered a lone bogey at the par-3 fourth hole with four birdies going out. However, he opened the second nine in bogey-triple bogey-bogey, and then traded two birdies with two bogeys on the last six holes. In all, Koepka penciled in just six pars on his card, and then signed it sitting 10 strokes off the overnight lead. Apr 9 - 7:01 PM

In a brief update at GolfChannel.com, Rex Hoggard reported that Brooks Koepka is about a week into taking full swings again following a dislocated rib that led to a withdrawal during his final round of the Arnold Palmer Invitational on March 22.

Koepka wasn't available for comment, so Hoggard tracked down Koepka's coach, Claude Harmon III. "It kind of helped him not focus on the golf course," Harmon said. "You can focus so much on the golf course and almost get overwhelmed, but he’s been trying to focus on his swing so I think that could be a good thing." We'll see. The winner of the WM Phoenix Open is making his debut at the Masters. That alone is enough reason to ignore him, but the injury tips the balance against an investment.

Brooks Koepka has withdrawn from the Arnold Palmer Invitational during the final round due to pain associated with a rib injury he sustained on Thursday.

It was reported on Golf Channel on Sunday morning that Koepka dislocated his rib on Thursday. Rather than play it safe, he made the decision to try and gut it out. He commented that he did not want to be a quitter, but pulled out following his tee shot on the par-5 12th hole in Sunday's final round. After he walked off the course, Koepka told Golf Channel's Todd Lewis that the second shot on 11 and his tee shot on 12 were the most pain he had experienced on the golf course and that he was having trouble breathing without pain. The PGA TOUR winner was 3-over-par through 11 holes with one birdie, two bogeys and a double bogey on his card. He was 2-under and outside the top 55 on the leaderboard through 65 holes. It's his first in-tournament WD in 25 starts as a professional on the PGA TOUR. Koepka indicated that his goal was to be ready for the Masters.

Brooks Koepka fashioned a 6-under-par 31-35=66 in his second round of the Arnold Palmer Invitational to get to the midway point in 7-under 137.

Koepka is in his second appearance at Bay Hill, so even though he's a first-time PGA TOUR member, he can tap into some of the course knowledge that yielded a T26 here last year. Today, he landed 15 greens in regulation and poured in seven birdies to cover a lone bogey at the par-3 14th hole. His longest conventional conversion ran 21'11" at the par-4 first where he began the round, but Koepka also circled a five-yarder from just off the putting surface at the par-4 15th. Thanks to the nifty work today, he's just six strokes behind the 36-hole clubhouse lead.
Mar 20 - 5:47 PM

Brooks Koepka carded a 3-under-par 34-35=69 in his opening round of the World Golf Championships-Cadillac Championship.

He missed only four (of 14) fairways and four greens in regulation en route to four birdies. That set featured one of the shots of the day. It occurred at the par-4 14th where he found an island of rough inside a greenside bunker on approach. From there 39 yards away, Koepka buried the pitch for a 3. His only notable conventional conversion rolled 10'3" for par at the par-4 third. He signed his card sitting one stroke off the clubhouse lead. This marks Koepka's first appearance in a WGC.
Mar 5 - 4:17 PM

Brooks Koepka blistered PGA National's Champion Course for a 6-under-par 33-31=64 in his second round of The Honda Classic.

Playing partners Rory McIlroy and Dustin Johnson slammed their trunks today, but Koepka will play on at 2-over 142 thanks to today's 14-stroke improvement. He was outstanding, going 8-for-12 with eight birdies. Five of them traveled longer than 14 feet, including three from outside 21 feet. He even poured in a par save from 11'10" at the par-4 sixth. At last check, his strokes gained: putting measured 6.225 and he ranked second in the field through two rounds.
Feb 27 - 4:56 PM

Brooks Koepka signed for a 2-over-par 36-38=74 following his second round of the Farmers Insurance Open on the South Course at Torrey Pines.

He exchanged four birdies with four bogeys through 17 holes today, never sitting better than 1-under or worse than 1-over. Two of his par breakers disappeared from outside 11 feet. When he landed the green in two at the par-5 18th hole, he was poised to post another red number and lurk near the leaders entering the weekend. Instead, Koepka took five putts from 64 feet for a double bogey. After his birdie try from 67 inches missed, he fanned on a pair from 29 inches each before tapping in from 22 inches. At 4-under 140, last week's champion is suddenly six swings adrift of 36-hole leader Harris English at Torrey Pines.
Feb 6 - 7:00 PM

Brooks Koepka took advantage of his one round on the North Course of Torrey Pines and carded a 6-under-par 32-34=66 in his opening round of the Farmers Insurance Open.

Last week's winner didn't waste any time, either, circling a birdie at the par-4 10th hole where he kick-started his round. An eagle-3 at 14 ensued, as did four more birdies. His only blemish was a bogey at the par-4 second. Koepka is two strokes off the clubhouse lead. Up next is Torrey South on Friday where something has to give, but with the way he's performing, another dandy score would not be a surprise.
Feb 5 - 7:48 PM

Brooks Koepka roared late in the final round of the Waste Management Phoenix Open to post a bogey-free 5-under-par 33-33=66 and claim his first PGA TOUR victory.

Koepka's 15-under 269 total was one better than a trio of chasers. While each of his three birdies were from close range, the deciding factor in the tournament was an eagle on the par-5 15th from just off the green. He used the putter to pour in a 50'6" attempt from just short of the surface. He had near misses on the par-4 14th and 18th holes from long range, just burning the edge with pure putts. Koepka landed 16 greens in regulation on the day, allowing him to operate without much stress. He ends the week fourth in strokes gained: tee-to-green at 9.537. With his breakthrough title on TOUR, he qualifies for THE PLAYERS. He was already in the majors by virtue of his elite play on the European Tour.
Feb 1 - 5:59 PM

Brooks Koepka blitzed TPC Scottsdale for a bogey-free 7-under-par 34-30=64 in the third round of the Waste Management Phoenix Open, and he joins Hideki Matsuyama in the clubhouse lead at 10-under 203.

Koepka is an emerging star, already winning on the European Tour and earning his 2014-15 full PGA TOUR status by virtue of his performance on sponsor exemptions last season. He was quiet early in his round, dropping a 16-footer for birdie on the par-4 fifth to go with eight pars on his outward nine. He went nuts on the back, starting with a 28'11" birdie on the par-4 10th and a 16'1" birdie on the par-4 11th. He added four more birdies on 13, 15, 16 and 17 to complete his masterpiece. He will try and check off one more box tomorrow, attempting to win on the PGA TOUR for the first time.

Brooks Koepka gears up for this week's Waste Management Phoenix Open ranked 49th in the FedExCup standings.

His positioning inside the top 50 is more impressive when you consider he has teed it up just twice this season. While the PGA TOUR schedule may have been light, he wasn't sitting at home eating potato chips. Instead, he opted to play overseas, collecting a win at the Turkish Airlines Open on the European Tour. With eight top 20s in his last 11 starts internationally, gamers should have Koepka firmly on their radar this week.

Brooks Koepka's 2014 calendar year was highlighted by a win in the Turkish Airlines Open on the European Tour and he ends the year 34th in the Official World Golf Ranking.

It's widely known that Koepka played his way to full status on the PGA TOUR for 2014-15 after beginning the 2013-14 season without any status. Before the win in Turkey and a trio of less notable finishes across the globe, he logged just two starts on the PGA TOUR in 2014-15, tying for eighth in the Frys.com Open and sharing fourth in the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open. His last missed cut on any tour came at the Aberdeen Asset Management Scottish Open in July, the week before The Open Championship. That is a streak of 12 consecutive paydays. For obvious reasons, big things are expected for Koepka on the PGA TOUR this season.

With a bogey-free, 7-under-par 31-34=65 in his final round of the Turkish Airlines Open at The Montgomerie Maxx Royal in Antalya, Brooks Koepka emerged with a one-stroke victory over Ian Poulter, his first on the European Tour.

Koepka started the day two shots off the 54-hole lead of Australia's Wade Ormsby. The American then poured in five birdies by the 10th hole before adding an eight-foot eagle conversion at the par-5 13th. He had to climb over Poulter, who began the day one swing back. The Brit carded a bogey-free, 5-under 31-36=67, but just got beat. Ormsby closed with 71 to finish in a four-way T4 four strokes off Koepka's pace. "It's a special week obviously, these four events and The Race to Dubai are ones you prepare for all year, and to win one of them is very special," said the champ, who posted 17-under 271. "I feel like I've been playing really well. I've been knocking on the door, and these last maybe two, three months, I've been very close over here and in the States. ... And I've learned something every time, and used that today. I was very relaxed, very calm today, and it showed I guess." He's now exempt into the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational.

Brooks Koepka rallied to post a 3-under-par 34-34=68 in the final round of the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open and secures a top-five finish at 15-under 269.

Koepka was largely an afterthought, trading a 14-foot birdie on the par-4 second hole for a bogey on the par-3 14th. His last four holes featured three birdies and a par for the ultimate backdoor finish. Coming on the heels of a T8 at the Frys.com Open last week, his form remains among the best on the PGA TOUR and he is a threat every week he tees it up.

Brooks Koepka crafted a 7-under-par 30-34=64 in the third round of the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open.

It isn't often a guy can record two eagles in the same round, but that is exactly what happened for Koepka at TPC Summerlin on Saturday. His first came from 35 inches on the par-5 ninth hole, while his second occurred after driving the green on the par-4 15th and converting a 14'11" eagle putt. Of his five birdies, only his 20'1" effort on the par-4 seventh was of note. The Florida State product's round wasn't perfect, as he surrendered a pair of bogeys. He enters the final round at 12-under 201 and is in search of his first PGA TOUR win.
