Well that’s too bad. BK is pretty unlikeable.

Who would have thunk in the last two years Brooks gets a major before Rory. I guess this is as strong a comeback as any. Still not likeable but my hats off to him. I think it harder to hold a lead to win than not.

I will never understand his LIV foray but he probably regrets it.

I dislike Brooks, he’s a phony. I think his entire “wannabe Michael Jordan competitive athlete” persona is just a cover for being as boring as shit on a stick. And the cheating thing from The Masters too. But he was clearly the best player in the field this week, so congrats.

I still think the LIV decision was based on injury and not knowing if he’d ever reach his peak level again.

 I believe his people created that persona. He is dull, not sure he cares either way, just went along with it. Couldn’t really back it up. But that’s ok. Not everyone is good in public eye.  There is no doubt he went to LiV because he thought he was done. Bad knees and hip not great for a golfer. Good win. He took down a solid field.

Why? He was paid a hundred million or so and still gets to compete in majors. He almost won the Masters and now has won the PGA. Except for Phoenix, he doesn't seem to care about any other regular PGA Tour events.

I get that he gets to have his cake and eat it too financially.

But in spite of him projecting that he doesn't give a shit about what people think of him he is thin skinned about his image. He wants to be liked and even loved, like Tiger and Rory. Obviously LIV put him on the wrong side of all that and there may be a tinge of regret. Not a huge one but ya know, a tiny one.

Unless there is context missing from the ESPN quote it’s statements like this that really befuddle me with Brooks:

Quote

Even after Koepka won, he was unwilling to share what he had learned at Augusta National.

"I can't give away all the secrets," he said.

Did he discover the secret to cold fusion or something. Gimme a break.

I'm confused. He hasn't won at AN. What am I missing?

Learned from his 2nd place vs. Rahm this year.

I love the crowd cheering hard for Block. Talk about pressure. Heck of an up and down to get into the top 15 for the exemption.

Apparently it was something to do with his mental approach to the game at Augusta on the final day.  He said he won't have the same mentality again though he accepted he may have a bad day.  I reckon it was about playing positively rather than playing negatively and defending his lead.

I gotta agree with you here. To my eye, LIV was perfect for Brooks. He really only likes the majors and he can still play them. Meanwhile he's getting tons of cash. Seems like a win/win for Brooks. 

My bag is an ever-changing combination of clubs. 

A mix I am forever tinkering with.

I wonder whether Brooks win will encourage other big stars to move from the PGA to LIV.  Provided they have qualified to play the next few majors and assuming they do well in those, they will get enough points to qualify and get the big money from LIV.  Would be interesting to see the repercussions of Koepka's win and also whether Koepka would automatically qualify for the team events like the Ryder and President's cups.  He has got quite a few points from a second in Augusta and win in the PGA.  In that case, do the PGA put their foot down and say he is ineligible despite his points because he is playing in LIV. 🤷‍♀️

If Hovland had played like Rahm, BK would have finished second again. Hovland had plenty of opportunities to pass BK and didn’t capitalize on his mistakes.

I think the shine is mostly off the LIV rose.

The PGA Tour has the designated event model now too.

I don't think Brooks worries about that. ... At least not while he's counting his money. 

It's always tough to distinguish a person's actual persona from his/her public persona, but Brooks gives off an air of "I don't care what you think".

    • Cycling to a golf course definitely adds an adventurous twist to the game. To make it feasible, consider paring down your gear and opting for lightweight equipment. Investing in a bike rack designed for golf clubs can also help ease the transportation process. Planning your route carefully and allowing for extra time can ensure a smooth ride to the course.When it comes to protecting your bike and gear, bicycle insurance is essential. Considering the investment in both your bike and golf equipment, it's wise to have coverage for unexpected events. You can explore bicycle insurance uk to find a policy that fits your needs.
    • Are these one putt percentages? Even if those three buckets between 12 and 30 feet are all 1 for 2, that's high. 3 for 6 from 12 to 30 feet is a serious outlier. The others could be: 15/16 6/11 7/12 5/13 1/2 1/2 1/2 1/9 67 putts total, which is probably 2 rounds? My rough shot at strokes gained for that lot would be: -0.6 + -2.8 + 0.0 + 0.5 + 0.5 + 0.8 + 0.9 + 0.0 = -0.7 (PGA Tour baseline). Over two rounds that's pretty good and extremely good for a 15 index baseline. I'd think a 15 index would be expected to be somewhere in the -6 over two rounds. And that's with 3-6ft killing you.
