Koepka eyeing Open glory
Brooks Koepka is adamant he will get his name on the Open trophy at some point of his career.
World number two Koepka already has three majors to his name, having triumphed at the US Open the past two years before adding the 2018 US PGA Championship to his collection.
The 28-year-old American is one of the leading contenders to win the coveted Green Jacket at the Masters in April but his attention already seems to be on landing the famous Claret Jug.
Royal Portrush Golf Club will be hosting the Open in July this year and Koepka, who finished tied-ninth at the Abu Dhabi HSBC Championship on his last appearance, says he enjoys the British event.
"I feel very confident about the British Open," he was quoted as saying by The Scotsman. "I like links golf. I think it's fun. I see so many different shots. I see so many ways to be creative I'm very creative in my mind. I see a bunch of different things."
The Open will return St Andrews in 2021 for the first time since 2015 and Koepka believes that venue could represent his best chance of winning the tournament.
He added: "I remember coming over to Scotland when I was maybe 12 or 13, somewhere around that age, and playing Carnoustie, St Andrews, a bunch of different places and just kind of fell in love.
"Now that I get to come over a couple times a year and play links golf, it's something that the more and more I play it, the more and more I love it. I feel very confident around St Andrews. I feel like I'll definitely win one there."
