Masters 2021: Brooks Koepka responds perfectly to rumors about his devastating injury


Sam Greenwood

Yes, Brooks Koepka is one of the best golfers of his generation—having already amassed four majors. But Koepka deserves credit for being one of the best smack talkers and having a phenomenal social-media game—and we're thankful for the constant content he delivers to golf fans.

His latest gem came Sunday after the 30-year-old was spotted practicing at Augusta National, putting the notion that he would miss this week's Masters to rest.

Koepka had shared a photo on social media on March 23rd confirming he had surgery on his right knee, which seemed to put doubt in his ability to play this week. Brad Faxon went so far to say on his SiriusXM show that the scuttlebutt on the range at the Honda Classic was that Koepka could be out 6-8 months.

Now that his return from the injury is official, Koepka put that report in an absolute body bag.

As the above tweet proves, Koepka remains undefeated in the social media world. Poor Brad Faxon—we'll see if this turns into a Brandel Chamblee v. Koepka level relationship. For content purposes, selfishly, we can only hope.
