Saturday was a tough day for Brooks Koepka, as the four-time major champion was forced to withdraw from the Tour Championship.
Koepka, already chosen for this month’s Ryder Cup, had to withdraw from the playoff finale due to a wrist injury. Koepka appeared to suffer the injury while striking a root during a shot on Saturday.
The superstar golfer didn’t seem overly concerned on Saturday. However, he wants to proceed cautiously with any injuries.
“Same wrist I had issues with in ’17 and ’18 so I’m just making sure it’s all good,” Koepka said.
Koepka missed The Masters in 2018 due to wrist issues. However, he was able to win the U.S. Open later that year. Hopefully he’ll be able to return in time for the Ryder Cup later this month.
If Koepka is able to make the Ryder Cup, he’ll have his fiancee, Jena Sims, supporting him during the tournament. Sims, a model, has often been spotted walking the course during Koepka’s big tournaments.
Earlier this week, Koepka’s fiancee shared a heartfelt message.
“Engaged a whole 6 months today,” she wrote on Friday. “You don’t need someone to complete you, only to accept you completely.”
Hopefully we’ll get to see Brooks (and Jena) at the Ryder Cup later this month.
