Brooks Koepka has conceded his game at the moment is ‘clearly not very good’ as he plays in his final tournament ahead of his PGA Championship title defence.


Koepka played like a man possessed 12 months ago at Oak Hill Country Club, waltzing to his fifth major championship title by dominating the final 54 holes in New York.


Since then it has been a story familiar to Koepka and every other person on the planet who plays this game.


Brooks says nobody has a clue over golf future.

The American’s form has dipped considerably and throughout the 2024 LIV Golf season he is yet to crack a finish higher than solo seventh.


Koepka, largely seen as one of the best bets to contend in the majors, wasn’t even a factor as Scottie Scheffler slipped on his second green jacket at Augusta National.


His excursion at the 2024 Masters saw him finish on on nine-over par which represented his worst performance other than missing the cut at the 2022 Masters that saw him try and put his fist through a car window.

“Clearly not very good,” Koepka replied when asked by a reporter at LIV Golf Singapore how he would evaluate his game ahead of the second major of the year.


He said he viewed his prep for the 2024 Masters as ‘time wasted’.


“[But] I have to just keep grinding away, doing the work and hopefully, something will turn around,” he added.


Koepka’s struggles saw him switch out his Scotty Cameron Teryllium Tour Newport 2 putter for a Scotty Cameron Phanton Phantom X 5.5 mallet.


He put it in the bag two weeks before the Masters. 


So how is it going?


“I can’t find the hole at all, to be honest with you. Something we’ve just been putting some work into, so trying to find some answers,”


“I feel like I’m hitting good putts, they just keep burning lips. Eventually, it starts to wear on you after a while. All you can do is hit a good putt and see where it goes from there. Hopefully, they start falling soon.”


Koepka opened up LIV Golf Singapore with a five-under 66.


It left him tied for second with Thomas Pieters after 18 holes, one stroke behind Sebastian Munoz.
