His name was never mentioned this past week at the Tournament Of Champions.
Brooks Kopeka was virtually anonymous. The U.S. Open champion shot 78-74-78-75 and finished dead last — 34th in a field of 34.
The Hero World Challenge was an equal disaster last month. Last place there as well.
“It’s not fun,” Koepka said after he finished on Sunday.
There’s a problem with his left wrist and right now it’s befuddling the doctors he’s visited.
“We’re still in the process of trying to figure out what it is. Nobody can come up with an answer right now. I just know it hurts,” Kopeka said.
He’s had numerous tests but still doesn’t know either the extent or the cause of the injury, which he said hurts throughout his swing.
“On Wednesday it hurt like hell. It felt like someone was jabbing a knife in my hand,” he said. “The problem is we don’t have any answers. When we get some answers we can address the issue and go from there.”
Koepka will fly home to try and get to the bottom of the issue.
Right now, he’s not scheduled to play until Phoenix (Feb. 1-4) and then the AT&T at Pebble Beach (Feb. 8-11).
Hopefully he’ll get some answers to the problem in the next few weeks.
