Palm Beach Gardens (CBS12) — You can’t get much better than the number two golfer in the world, and you can’t get much better than the fact that he was born and raised in Palm Beach County.
Wellington native Brooks Koepka is happy to be back playing at the Honda Classic.
Koepka missed last year’s Honda Classic because of an injury, but he’s 100 percent healthy now. Incredibly, he’s won three majors since his last Honda Classic, including back-to-back US Opens, so he’s hoping the difficulty he’s had on the Champions Course over the years is behind him.
“Those are in the past,” said Koepka after his pro-am round. “I am long gone from those memories. It was frustrating being on the couch last year, and the year before just I wasn’t in any type of headspace to even play golf. I probably shouldn’t even have played. But you just come out and drive it out grind it out and see where you’re at and see where you’re at come Sunday.”
Koepka tees off on Thursday morning at 7:45 along with Gary Woodland and Jhonattan Vegas.
