Brooks Koepka’s coach says the three-time major winner wants to become the undisputed best player in the world
Koepka currently sits third in the world rankings and has taken his game to a new level over the past two years, with three major wins after breaking his PGA Tour duck with victory in the 2015 Phoenix Open.
Back-to-back US Open titles in 2017 and 2018 followed plus this year’s US PGA Championship, and the 28-year-old is now firmly established among the sport’s elite.
His coach, Pete Cowen, has revealed that the big-hitting star is keen to break away from the chasing pack and emulate arguably the game’s greatest ever player.
“Brooks wants to put a massive gap between him and the rest of the field, like Tiger Woods did all those years ago,” he said.
“The desire is still there. You think after three majors that the desire might disappear, but not with people like that, for him it gets stronger.
“His sparring partner Dustin Johnson is now left behind. Dustin was the heavyweight champion of the world, winning his major back in 2016 and then going on to secure world number one.
“Now, Brooks has come along and won three majors and knocked Dustin off his perch.”
