Brooks Koepka found horse head in bed, couldn’t refuse LIV Golf offer

CROMWELL, Connecticut — Sometime in the past few days — ever since he told friends he was emphatic about the LIV Golf series — Brooks Koepka found a metaphorical horse head in his bed, an offer he couldn’t refuse from the Saudi mutilation enthusiasts behind the breakaway circuit . Since Koepka doesn’t like to let fools suffer and has been vocally contemptuous of LIV Golf’s leading figures – Greg Norman, Phil Mickelson and Golf Saudi CEO Majed Al Sorour – we have to assume the bid was high enough to put him to sleep.

For those who know Koepka well, a brief moment at last week’s US Open provided early and irrefutable evidence that he had determined his fate at LIV Golf. He walked over to Mickelson on the beach to fist him and exchange a few words. That won’t be the only time he does something that would have been unpalatable until recently. The Saudis expect loyalty among team members, be it golfers or assassination squads in distant consulates.

Besides now having to work at the beck and call of people he doesn’t like (with good reason, to be honest), the decision to join LIV Golf is a humiliation for Koepka, though he won’t be happy to admit it. . He’s always thought of himself as more of an athlete than a golfer, but this is an admission that he’s neither, that he’s just an entertainer doomed to play exhibitions against the washed-up veterans and nameless youths he long deemed unfit to to smell his jockstrap.
