The Brooks Koepka-needs-motivation parade has moved to Pebble Beach where the two-time defending champion was understandably annoyed by a Fox omission of his likeness in a U.S. Open promo. Still, calling for a firing seems a bit much.
From Steve DiMeglio’s Golfweek report after Koepka’s pre-tournament press conference:
“There’s been a couple of times where it’s just mind boggling. It’s like, really? Like, how do you forget that?” Koepka said Tuesday at Pebble Beach. “Just kind of shocked. They’ve had over a year to kind of put it out. So I don’t know. Somebody probably got fired over it or should.”
The promo-make joins a graphics coordinator and Brandel Chamblee on the list of snubbers who also deserve credit for helping fuel Koepka’s four-major run.
