Brooks Koepka is just the seventh back-to-back winner of the U.S. Open in the history of golf

Brooks Koepka is developing a legendary reputation for being a major championship dynamo, but he isn’t dominant during other tournaments. Now we know why.

Speaking at the podium Tuesday ahead of the 2019 Open Championship, Koepka was asked what makes him so dominant at majors. That’s when he admitted he doesn’t even practice for normal tournaments: “If you see me on TV that’s when I play golf,” he said of the non-majors.

It’s a stunning, and quite honestly hilarious explanation by Koepka. It’s also completely on brand. One of the most laid-back golfers on tour today, he’s a rare bird who never seems to cave to major championship pressure.

The big question is: If Koepka did practice for those pesky “other” tournaments, how many of them would he win?
