Golf World Reacts To Brooks Koepka's Comments Tuesday
Brooks Koepka of the United States raises his hand to the crowd after hitting a bird in the first hole in the first round of the 2019 U.S. Open Pebble Beach Golf Links June 13, 2019 at Pebble Beach, California.
On Tuesday, the four-time winning champion punished the media for diverting attention from the U.S. Open this week.
"I don't understand," Koepka said, to Rex Hoggard of the Golf Channel. "I'm trying to focus on the U.S. Open man. Officially I don't.
Scores of golf fans applauded Koepka's comments, as they chose to focus on the upcoming event at The Country Club rather than on the new golf league.
However, some have turned a blind eye to Koepka criticizing journalists for doing their job and asking questions about major developments.
Koepka has the motive of not speaking ill of anyone who has chosen to take money from an organization backed by Saudi Arabia. His younger brother, Chase Koepka, finished in 33rd place
While Koepka wins the US Open in 2017 and 2018, he is struggling this year. The 32-year-old missed out on relegation from The Players Championship and The Masters
