Brooks Koepka: ‘I live for the Majors’

Brooks Koepka has insisted he “lives” to compete in Major Championships.

The 33-year-old put up a stellar performance in the first Major of the year where he finished in share of second place at The Masters.

Following his strong performance, he remains one of the favourites at next week’s PGA Championship – an event he’s won twice in his career.

However, this week he tees it up at LIV Golf Tulsa, a tournament where lively crowds and raucous music supply a different element and vibe to the event.

When asked how he transitions from between the two styles of tournaments, Koepka said: “A major I’m so focused.

“Honestly the crazier things are, the more it slows down for me, the more focused I get, the more tunnel vision I have.

“I feel like a lot of great athletes have that same thing. The more chaotic everything is going on around, the slower everything is for me.

“That’s what I live for. I live for the majors, and that’s where I’m trying to perform.”

Major Preparation

The four-time Major Champion also revealed his game plan ahead of heading to Oak Hill next week.

“All I think the week before a major really is just hitting golf shots,” added the American.

“Trying to hit different shots, make sure you’ve got everything in the bag, I’m hitting in the right window, controlling the spin, controlling distances.”

LIV Golf Tulsa is set to take place 12-14 May, with Koepka aiming to win his third title on the Saudi-backed circuit.
