Brooks Koepka walks all over Rory McIlroy's record with brutal comments

Yes, they both may have won three times on tour this year, and they each have four majors, but McIlroy hasn't won a major since 2014.

The 30-year-old beat the 29-year-old in the player-voted contest... but don't call it a rivalry.

Koepka is the world No 1 with McIlroy just one place below.

"I'm not looking at anybody behind me", Koepka said.

"There's really nothing I could do that wouldn't be a dip after 2015", Spieth told AFP in a frank interview at the CJ Cup in South Korea, where on Thursday he will tee up in Asia for the first time since 2016.


Hovland becomes the first player to reach that mark since 1983, the first year the stat was tracked.

World No. 1 Brooks Koepka took a big swipe at notions of a rivalry with Rory McIlroy yesterday, pointing out that the Northern Irishman had not won a Major since the American joined the PGA Tour. He won the event previous year by four strokes.

As well as the Tour Championship-FedEx Cup double, his season also included victories at The Players Championship and the RBC Canadian Open.

"It's mainly I turned around my putting and chipping from the year before", Spieth said. Designed by Ronald Fream and David Dale of Golf Plan, the pineland course, said to be designed to create a Scottish Highlands feel, is a composite of two distinct nines - the Creek Course (front-nine) and the Highland Course.

"I'm not looking at anybody behind me".


"Look I love Rory he's a great player and he's fun to watch, but it's just hard to believe there's a rivalry in golf. So I just don't view it as a rivalry".

You perceive if the followers function, then that is on them and it is probably going to be fun....

Koepka revealed earlier this month that he recently underwent stem-cell treatment to fix a partially torn patella tendon in his left knee.

Jazz, 23, is featuring in this week's elite 78-man field by virtue of being the current Asian Tour Order of Merit leader and the reigning Korean Open champion intends to use the next three PGA TOUR tournaments which he is exempted as well to test his game against the best golfers in the world. "It's the first time it's been feeling consistently good in a while".
