Brook Koepka will attend the exclusive major of the Augusta National Stadium this week in poor condition.
Last month, Koepka had surgery on his right knee due to a dislocation of his kneecap and a damaged ligament. Yesterday, he hit the field test, moving slowly, sometimes limping. “It’s okay to say roughly”, the American golfer shrugged and replied to the reporter Golf Channel.
However, the player who was born in 1990 confirmed that he was ready to play the first major male major of the year.
According to the Golf ChannelKoepka struggled to walk downhill. He claimed that his hitting posture would be awkward when the ball was lower than the foot. So much so, he even intended to use the number 3 wooden stick to distribute in hole 13, par5. This hole at the end of the corner of Amen has been a nightmare in the Masters from time to time. Although the strike distance is reduced, using that club will help Koepka avoid the ball position on the slope for the second shot. He is ranked 12th on the World Golf Ranking List (OWGR).
In the trial session on April 5, Koepka studied the way to put the ball with a difficult look. On hole 8 green, he bends his left knee while his right knee is straight, then leans down to read the terrain.
“I can’t bend the pillow because it puts pressure on my kneecap. When I lie on my stomach, I can bend the pillow about 90 degrees. People will find my posture funny in this tournament. I know, but I have. no other way, “Koepka said of the current state of the right knee.
And before going on the field, Koepka had to use adjunct therapies. It took him three hours to do this for the training session this Tuesday morning and received extra care past midnight.
Masters 2021 kicks off tomorrow, April 8. Last year, this major was held in November by Covid-19. Meanwhile, Koepka hit T7.
Koepka has entered professional golf since 2012, starting with the European Challenge Tour Second Division system. Two years later, he received a membership card for PGA Tour.
And over five years in the US arena, Koepka won four major in eight championships, accumulating 47 weeks at the top of the OWGR group. Before he damaged his right knee, Koepka injured his left knee, hip and wrist.
