Brooks Koepka weight loss: Why has Masters star lost weight and how has he done it? (Image: GETTY) Koepka, a three-time Major winner and former world No 1, arrived at the famed Augusta golf course some 20 pounds lighter than he was last year. Koepka currently holds the US Open and PGA Championship and could hold three of the four Majors by the end of Sunday. But he may struggle to handle all three after dropping the weight that has seen him lose 10 yards off the tee and his iron play go awry. Koepka has been criticised for the decision by golfing experts with Brandel Chamblee particularly scathing.

It’s a question that’s getting some talk during Masters week given that he won two majors last year: why did Brooks Koepka go on a diet? When first mentioned, it sounded like a health matter. On Tuesday Koepka revealed the recent end to a 1,800-calorie-a-day diet and mentioned blood tests and staying out of the gym as his energy levels have come back. “Just had a bunch of blood work and trying to figure out what was going on. The diet I was on was probably not the best,” Koepka said. “I was like 1,800 calories a day. I mean, you’re not going to be in the best physical shape at that point. You look at somebody like Michael Phelps or somebody like that eating 6,000 or 7,000 calories by lunch time. But I wanted to do it and try to lose some weight, and maybe went about it a little too aggressively for just a long period of time and the intensity of what I was doing.” One possible reason for Koepka’s intense effort to get lean.

ST. LOUIS (AP) — Just call him big-game Brooks. Not even Brooks Koepka can explain why he plays some of his best golf at the biggest events. The PGA Championship not only was his third major, he won two of the three majors he played this year and three of his last six. And it goes deeper than that. He has finished among the top 15 in 12 of the last majors he has played, dating to a tie for fourth in his U.S. Open debut at Pinehurst No. 2 in 2014.“More attention to detail, more mentally focused, more ... every shot really, really means something, ” he said about his major performances. “Everyone on my team says I act a little different, the way I approach it. It’s very down to a routine this week, and other weeks ... not saying I vary from the routine, but it’s much more disciplined.” One oddity about his record is the low number of other victories, though it’s not as skewed as it seems considering his background. On the PGA Tour, Koepka … [Read more...] about Big-game Brooks: Koepka has 4 wins on tour, 3 majors
Three-time major champion Brooks Koepka has publicly criticised Sergio Garcia for "acting like a child" after the Spaniard was disqualified for damaging greens at the European Tour's maiden event in Saudi Arabia. A day after being caught on camera hacking at the sand after a poor bunker shot, Garcia stabbed and scuffed at five greens at Royal Greens Golf & Country Club. After the 39-year-old completed his third round, he was then called in for a meeting with Tour officials, including chief executive Keith Pelley, who informed him of his disqualification. Speaking on the Playing Through podcast, Koepka said: “Everybody's got to play the same golf course. I didn't play very good, but you didn't really see anybody else doing that. You're 40 years old so you gotta grow up eventually.
