    It’s very possible we are past Koepkas peak. It doesn’t mean he won’t play well again, win again.
    This knee issue is very real. Brooks is just the athlete type whom doesn’t want to talk about it as an excuse.
    It’s easy to walk around with confidence and to get around from anywhere when a player like Brooks is healthy. Walking pains are affecting his game. It is understandable.
    The real question is how aggressive to get with fixing the knee issue? It seems it is time to get aggressive considering the long layoff and less invasive procedures down not help much.
    He can return to a very high level, it he needs to get fixed, and needs to give himself a lot of time to recover. The problem is Brooks has that tiger-athlete mentality of recklessly sucking it up. Even tiger kinda learned from that.

      Excellent summary of where Koepka finds himself…..depends on the extent of the surgery…..if its arthroscopic — that wouldn’t be a huge deal, if they have to cut, that’s an entirely different animal in the knee surgery world….
