Exhibitions mobbed Koepka and the set of experiences making champion, Phil Mickelson, as they finished their fourth round at Kiawah Island.

I trust I’m actually playing at 50, however to have the option to come out and contend and really win, that is an entire other thing.”
However when pushed on his considerations as exhibitions attacked the fairway, Koepka didn’t keep down. He went through right knee medical procedure only weeks before the current year’s Lords, with his restoration from that a progressing cycle.
Koepka said: “It would have been cool in the event that I didn’t have a knee injury and got dinged a couple of times in the knee in that group on the grounds that nobody truly cared.

I don’t think anyone truly comprehends until you really you’re emerging from a medical procedure how… I mean, in any event, when I was doing recovery and there’s five individuals sort of remaining by your knee, you get a little skittish.”I wouldn’t fret pausing or being around there however getting my… I don’t have the foggiest idea, it seemed like someone attempted to, I don’t have a clue what the arrangement was, yet it’s what it is. I will place it in ice today. It seems like poo acceptable at this point.
“It got knock a couple of times. Someone stuck [Koepka’s caddie] Rickie [Elliott], Rickie halted inadvertently on the grounds that he got penetrated in the face, and afterward I got bored clinched in light of the fact that he got halted so rapidly. I don’t have the foggiest idea what somebody attempted to for sure, I don’t have a clue what the arrangement was. There were such countless individuals around.”
Mickelson was naturally requested his musings on a similar situation as he commended his 6th significant success and turning into the most seasoned player at any point to win one of golf’s excellent individual occasions. Mickelson seemed unconscious of Koepka’s slant.
