They used to say the only thing that could stop Tiger Woods was his body.
That rang so true for so long and Woods, through the miracles of modern surgery, was able to resurrect himself from the ashes of a really, really bad back.
Which brings us to the current world’s No. 1 — Brooks Koepka.
There’s not been as much as a whisper from South Florida and Brooks’ status — the condition of his injured left knee.
That injury kept him off the Presidents Cup team and don’t look for him to show up at the Tournament of Champions out in Hawaii in a few weeks.
He’s been to see at least two doctors and the word “surgeon” was used when it was revealed that he was seeking second opinions on that knee.
So the saga of Wounded Knee continues.
No Koepka sightings, no practice sessions, no nothing.
For the record, the only Koepka playing right now is little brother Chase, who shot 72-71-68-67 at the Korn Ferry Q-School last week. That was only good enough to tie for 69th and earned him virtually no guaranteed starts on that tour for 2020.
Which makes the future of both Koepkas a bit cloudy for Christmas 2019 and the 2020 golf season.
