Hamish Neal - From the sideline of sport

@hamishneal   Brooks was here… To use a well-worn phrase from the seminal 1994 movie Shawshank Redemption. Brooks (Koepka) was here and he conquered the PGA Championship at Bethpage Black. Koepka prevailed by two strokes after finishing at eight under two clear of good friend Dustin Johnson having lead by seven strokes at various stages […]

  Aside from arguments about whether or not Brooks Koepka is boring (pro tip: he’s not), the topic generating the most conversation at the PGA Championship at Bethpage Black last weekend was the decorum of metropolitan New York golf fans. From a player perspective, I heard relatively few complaints, although I supposed it depends on […]

Significant Achievement How about Kurt Kitayama making the cut at the 101st PGA Championship Tournament, played at Bethpage Black in Farmington New York, one of the toughest public golf courses in the country? Kitayama finished tied for 64th with a two-over par round on Sunday for a total of 11 over par. Kurt finished ahead of many notable players, such as Phil Mickelson, Daniel Berger and Kevin Tway. Many popular players didn’t even make the 36-hole cut, i.e.: Tiger Woods, Bubba Watson, Jim Furyk, Sergio Garcia and Jon Rahm, to name a few. Kitayama gained entry into the tournament because of his two wins recently on the European Tour. Seems just like yesterday that Kurt was the point guard and bringing the ball down the court for Chico High. Man, how time flies when you’re having fun.

Meet the new manager in golf. Not as the old boss. Brooks Koepka is now setting the new standard in a grip, and everyone preferred to continue as closely as possible or be left behind. The bar with which Koepka is being set with his power and length combined with precision and accuracy – not […]

FARMINGDALE, N.Y. — The coronation risked turning into a public humiliation. New York fans were chanting, “DJ! DJ! DJ!” in Brooks Koepka’s face as he made a mess of the 14th hole. Up ahead, the crowd roared as Dustin Johnson birdied the difficult 15th. Koepka’s unfathomable four-hole bogey streak was about to shrink the lead […]
