Among dynamic players on a visit just Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson have won a larger number of majors than US PGA champion Streams Koepka.
Sunday’s fourth significant triumph from his last eight begins implies the American heads to the US Open knowing another effective title barrier would put him close by Mickelson for triumphs in the competitions that issue most.
We should likewise see Koepka as the destined to make noteworthy advances into Woods’ present count of 15 majors.
He is currently an undisputed hitting the fairway hotshot, having drawn dimension with Rory McIlroy’s group of four of crowns. What’s more, he has all the force the Northern Irishman at present needs.
Who might wager against Koepka at Rock Shoreline one month from now?
The 29-year-old Floridian has won the last two US Opens and now progressive PGA Titles with his two-shot triumph at Bethpage on Sunday.
Koepka is an ideal present day hitting the fairway machine. He has the athletic quality and parity that is fundamental for the present power amusement.
Dispatch it long to leave the most limited course to the green – that is the ethos that commands current golf, where standard fours stretch past 500 yards, standard fives are prolonged considerably further and important doglegs are practically wiped out.
Nobody is better prepared for such requests. Through the initial three days at the PGA, when Koepka manufactured a seven-stroke advantage, he completely ruled from tee to green.
In the event that his drives found the fairways, at that point fine and dandy, however on the off chance that his ball stopped in the harsh he had the solidarity to gouge it out and keep on gaining generally unhampered ground.
This is the reason as much preliminary work is done in the rec center as on the range by the present hitting the fairway stars. It is a power amusement where speed and quality are the basic items.
Course set-ups request this. From the minute Woods landed on the scene two decades prior – overwhelming Augusta, St Andrews, and Stone Shoreline – the specialists begin attempting to “Tiger-verification” courses.
They put in new tees to protract yardages and developed unpleasant to limit fairways. Bethpage was the prototype heritage course from the time when Woods changed the diversion.
The incongruity is that the progressions have played under the control of the greatest hitters.
Outfitted with current hardware – pardoning pot headed drivers with liberal sweet spots and balls that fly perpetually – preeminent competitors presently rule the playing golf world.
