Brooks Koepka plans to return from a long injury layoff, setting his eyes on next week's team event, the Zurich Classic of New Orleans.
Koepka was last seen at the Sentry Tournament of Champions, finishing last in the field. A torn tendon in his left wrist was the culprit that caused the decline in play and forced him to the sidelines. According to Doug Ferguson of the AP, he also underwent a treatment that injected some bone marrow from his hip into the wrist. Koepka was in a soft cast for two months of that 15-week layoff. Easing into action, the defending U.S. Open champ will make his first appearance at next week's team event, choosing Marc Turnesa as his playing partner. Koepka made this a family affair last year, finishing T5 while tag-teaming with his brother, Chase. Apr 20 - 2:52 PM

Still dealing with a nagging wrist injury, Brooks Koepka will not return before this year's Masters Tournament.

We worried about Koepka's availability when he was announced as a DNP this week and now Craig Dolch has shared the news regarding the Masters via USA Today. "They said I would be about 80 percent, but I can’t play 80 percent, I either have to go full bore or not at all. I don’t want to risk getting it re-injured and then be out a long time." On the bright side, Koepka should be 100 percent upon his return. Dolch also shared that Koepka started putting this week and will advance onto chipping next week. There is no update on his specific timetable for return.

Brooks Koepka has reached the early stage of his return timetable but still remains sidelined for this week's World Golf Championships-Dell Technologies Match Play.

Battling a wrist injury, Koepka announced an 8-to-12 week timetable to return to action (on Jan 19th). The 8-week mark would have come last Friday but he's not ready to return just yet. The obvious target return would come at the Masters in two weeks but it's less-than-ideal to return to a major championship without any competitive reps. Gamers should keep their eye on the Houston Open field next week to see if Koepka makes a prep start. If not, then we might not see him until after the Masters.

Brooks Koepka announced that he'll be on the sidelines for the next 8-to-12 weeks as he tries to recover from a torn tendon in his left wrist.

Koepka ended 2017 by finishing dead-last in the 18-man Hero World Challenge field and then Doug Ferguson broke the news on his wrist injury. The big hitter returned to action with a solo 34th (of 34) at the Sentry Tournament of Champions, but will now opt for rest. In a statement released by his management company, Koepka was quoted saying, "I am confident in my doctors and in the treatment they have prescribed, and I look forward to teeing it up at the Masters." This is a big blow for the short-term outlook of the defending U.S. Open champion but in the grand scheme of things, this could just be a minor blip on the radar when he looks back later in his career. At least, that is the hope.

Brooks Koepka fought through a wrist injury but settled for last place at the Sentry Tournament of Champions, putting a serious question mark on his 2018 schedule.

We knew Koepka had some wrist concerns that popped up ahead of the Hero World Challenge, but we didn't know the severity. He also finished last in that (unofficial) event. Ben Everill of PGATOUR.com weighed in on Koepka's wrist today with more insight. The most alarming quote from Koepka was, "It feels like someone is jabbing a knife in my hand." The fact that he gutted it out for the entire week tells us the pain is not unbearable but the results were clearly less than ideal. This sounds like a situation where gamers will want to steer clear until he shows signs of a remedy.

Brooks Koepka fought through some wrist issues in his latest start at the Hero World Challenge but is hopeful a little rest over the holidays will clear that right up.

Doug Ferguson of the AP reported that Koepka was dealing with wrist issues during the Hero World Challenge, where he went on to finish dead last with a four-day tally of 3-over 291. Given it was an exhibition, Koepka was able to take it easy for the week and collect a nice paycheck. The fact that he didn't back out of the event bodes well for the severity of this injury. The 27-year-old is coming off a career year that saw him collect his first major championship and produce a career high in earnings ($5,612,397). Gamers should keep their eye out for any more news concerning the wrist, but otherwise, Koepka should be in line for another stellar year come 2018.

Brooks Koepka wilted at the weekend in the WGC-HSBC Champions at Sheshan International GC; his final round 1-under-par 37-34=71 leading to a total of 12-under 276, good for T2 alongside Dustin Johnson and Henrik Stenson, but two back of winner Justin Rose. UPDATE: Koepka jumps four spots to a career-high 7th in OWGR.

The 27-year-old had opened 64-68 to eye a maiden WGC title, but he could only add 73-71 in the final two rounds as the wind buffeted the trees of the Shanghai course and threw his challenge in the process. On Sunday he made back-to-back bogeys at 3 and 4, but responded in some style, making birdie at 7, 10, 11 and 14. With the pre-round leader Johnson faltering badly Koepka was still in the race for the trophy, but he erred badly at 15, marking a double bogey-6 and couldn't make up any shots at the short par-4 16th. A final hole birdie was too little, too late for the win, but confirmed the share of second, a career-best WGC finish.

Brooks Koepka's catastrophic eighth hole cost him dearly in round three of the WGC-HSBC Champions at Sheshan International GC; he scraped a 1-over-par 36-37=73 to hit the 54-hole stage alone in second on 11-under 205, but six back of leader Dustin Johnson.

Saturday had started so well for the 27-year-old. He made birdie from 12'0" at the first which, with Johnson making bogey, represented an immediate two-shot swing. They both ticked No. 2 and then Koepka made it three in a row from just 7'0" to take the lead, but a swing hole of greater significance was to come. At the 603-yard par-5 eighth Johnson made an unlikely birdie from 25'0" and Koepka a disastrous triple bogey-8. The World No. 1 was free, the die cast. Koepka made two back nines birdies (at 14 and 16), but three dropped shots (at 10, 12 and 18) left him six shots adrift, even if he does head into the final lap alone in second, one clear of Henrik Stenson. He is on track to better his previous WGC best of T6 in the 2015 Bridgestone Invitational.

Brooks Koepka's neat second round of 4-under-par 34-34=68 sees him head into the final 36 holes of the WGC-HSBC Champions at Sheshan International GC on 12-under 132, just one swing back of the new leader Dustin Johnson.

Koepka had started Friday atop the leaderboard and would have remained there but for Johnson's stellar 63; Koepka is three swings clear of Justin Rose and Kiradech Aphibarnrat who are tied for third. The American began his second circuit of the Shanghai course in the same vein he left off Thursday, making birdie and 1 and 2. But he suddenly went becalmed and notched 13 straight pars. Another brace of par breakers (birdie 3-birdie2 at 16 and 17, his second such duo on those holes this week) got him back in touch with the leader as he seeks it improve on his T40 debut 12 months ago. "Missed some short putts," he admitted afterwards. "Hit them where I wanted, but think I misread them. I don't care what Dustin is doing, kind of focused on what I've got to do."

Brooks Koepka blitzed Sheshan International for an 8-under-par 31-33=64 in round one of the WGC-HSBC Champions in China, ending the opening day in a one-shot lead over Kiradech Aphibarnrat and Gavin Green.

It's a further shot back to Patrick Reed and Haydn Porteous while a five-man group on 5-under includes Justin Rose and Matt Kuchar. U.S. Open champion Koepka only broke 70 once on his course debut when T40 last year but today he roared to the summit thanks to a lap of the par 72 featuring seven birdies and an eagle. It was a quiet start for the Erin Hills hero as he opened with four pars from the 10th but a birdie at 14 sparked a big surge. After a par at 15, he ticked 16, drained a big curling putt for birdie at 17 and then buried a 21-foot eagle try at 18 to turn in 31. Another gain at 1 meant he'd played a six-hole stretch in 6-under and, after a lone bogey of the day at 3, he picked up further shots at 4, 7 and 8 to put himself clear at the top. Koepka hit 14 greens in regulation and took 25 putts in this his first strokeplay start since T6 at last month's TOUR Championship.

Making his first start since a team victory at the Presidents Cup, Brooks Koepka takes his talents to China for this week's World Golf Championships-HSBC Champions.

Making his course debut last year, Koepka signed some colorful scorecards en route to a T40 by week's end. His week included a pair of double bogeys but also included an eagle (par-4 16th hole in R3, the same hole he doubled the round before). It was the big numbers and a cold putter that held him back. The Florida State product hit 49 GIRs last year but took 30 or more swipes with the putter in all four rounds. That presents a nice buy-low opportunity for fantasy gamers as Koepka gets a second look at these green surfaces.

In the final match (of four) of Saturday afternoon four-ball action at the Presidents Cup, Brooks Koepka and Dustin Johnson brushed aside Marc Leishman and Branden Grace 3-and-2, stoking the Americans to 14.5 points to just 2.5 points for the International Team.

Team USA never trailed in the match with Koepka providing all of the fireworks. He won all six holes that the Americans won, four of those with birdies and adding an eagle-3 at nine. He circled the first and second to race out to a 2-UP lead, before Leishman squared the match with back-to-back birdies at 6 (from 37'1") and 7. Koepka won the eighth with a par-saver from 10'8" and claimed the ninth with eagle-3 from 19'11". Grace made his only contribution with birdie-3 at 12 (from 33 inches) to reduce the deficit to 1 DOWN, but Koepka won 13 and 15, the former from 18'8", to build the American's lead back to 3 UP.

Brooks Koepka and Dustin Johnson breezed through Liberty National en route to a 3-and-2 victory over Jhonattan Vegas and Adam Scott during the Friday four-ball segment of the 2017 Presidents Cup, moving the scoreboard to read 7 points to 2 points, in favor of the Americans.

Koepka and Johnson got down early in their match but fought back to win by day's end. The duo circled just two birdies on the outward nine, both on par 5s. Their opponents didn't apply the pressure as they still found themselves All Square at the turn. From there, the Americans circled birdies on two of the next three holes, later adding birdies at the 15th and 16th, as well. Koepka and Johnson went 0-1-0 at the 2016 Ryder Cup so this puts them at 1-1-0 in their career as a pairing. Given their extreme power off the tee, fans will continue to beg for this pairing as the week goes on, as well as future team competitions.

World No. 11 Brooks Koepka patched together a 1-under-par 35-34=69 in the final round of the TOUR Championship to conclude his second appearance (T18/2015) on 8-under 272, down two spots to solo 6th, four back of champion Xander Schauffele, and drops one place to a career-best 10th in the FedExCup standings.

After kicking off in 66-69-68, the U.S. Open winner began T4 on 7-under, five shy of 54-hole leader Paul Casey. Playing out of the penultimate twosome with Schauffele (68), he conjured five (of 14) fairways and nine greens in regulation, losing 1.036 strokes off-the-tee and 0.987 approaching-the-green. The FSU product squared three bogey-5s at holes 4, 7 and 10, slightly outpaced by four circles at 6 (from 10'5"), 8, 13 and 18. He posted 1.556 putts per GIR and 2.940 SG: Putting with 26 total putts. This was the Floridian's first top 10 in 11 Playoffs events, previously T12 last week (BMW), and his seventh top 10 of the season in 24 starts.

World No. 11 Brooks Koepka bogeyed three of his final four holes but still shot 2-under-par 33-35=68 on Day 3 of the TOUR Championship, climbing four spots to T4 on 7-under 203, five back of 54-hole leader Paul Casey.

After kicking off in 66-69, the 27-year-old began T8 on 5-under, two shy of a trio of overnight co-leaders. He found seven (of 14) fairways and 10 greens in regulation, losing 0.845 strokes around-the-green and 1.163 tee-to-green. The FSU product was 5-under thru 14 holes, silencing bogey-5 at No. 4 with six circles at 1, 3, 6, 11, 12 and 14, stalling out with bogeys at 15, 17 and 18, all failed scrambles. He posted 1.500 putts per GIR and 2.763 SG: Putting, taking 26 total putts. Koepka's split included three conversions from between 11 and 26 feet with a long of 25'6" at the par-4 first.
