KOHLER, Wisconsin – Ahead of the Ryder Cup at Whistling Straits near Sheboygan, Wisconsin, US, golfer Brooks Koepka was on the cover of the September issue of Golf Digest.
In the exclusive interview with the magazine, Koepka spoke about golf and his behavior on the course.
“Golf isn’t really a chatter game, but I can chat with the best of them,” Koepka said. “I don’t mean to say that the art of the game is garbage talk, but that limits the limit. If I go with my friends, what I tell them is completely different. Every bad move, you will hear about it. On tour, it’s more the little things.
Koepka made headlines over the summer with his ongoing feud with Ryder Cup teammate Bryson DeChambeau.
The two appeared to have put aside their differences for the Ryder Cup vs Team Europe based on a video shared by Team USA, but Koepka says he wishes he could look a bit more like some safety from the Kansas City Chiefs during the touring competition.
“I might not always show it, but I’m so intense inside wanting to beat you shit alive whatever we do.” It eats away at me inside, ”Koepka said. “We could play ping-pong or cornhole or whatever. I just want to embarrass you. If golf weren’t a “gentleman’s” sport, I would be talking in the trash all along my course. I would love to be in the NFL and just watch you like Tyrann Mathieu does after a tackle.
Mathieu is known for his tenacity and intensity on the pitch.
After missing the first game of the season due to a coaching decision due to his removal from the COVID-19 list with little time to train, the Honey Badger collected two interceptions during the week 2 against the Baltimore Ravens, knocking them back for a touchdown.
Koepka also refers to a quote from the late great Kobe Bryant; “They don’t hate the good guys. They hate the big guys.
“When you’re at the top people are going to hate you because you’re so good at what you do. When you delve deep into these words, you understand that it comes from jealousy. I went there, ”Koepka said. “There are times when I got off the course, and I’m jealous because someone has won a few times, and I think I know I’m better than them. I am so jealous! You feel that burn and that competitiveness, and it just wants you to take it further. “
