My strong views will continue - Koepka
Brooks Koepka says he will not be toning down his views on issues surrounding golf after becoming very outspoken in recent weeks.
World number four Koepka has become a leading figure in the world of golf and recently started to give strong opinions on certain incidents that have cropped up since the turn of the year.
The three-time major champion called out Sergio Aguero for being childish after the Spaniard was disqualified from the Saudi International, whilst Bryson DeChambeau's slow play has also been at the forefront of the 28-year-old's mind.
Asked about why he has only started to reveal his views now, Koepka said being an established player and enjoying success on tour makes it much easier to give his opinion.
"You're actually, probably, getting the real me now," he said after playing the Honda Classic pro-am Wednesday. "I think, before, I was just trying to be politically correct, not stir any bubbles and just kind of go on with things and be unnoticed.
"I feel like now, where I've put myself in the game, I've kind of established myself. I feel like I actually do have a voice, and it will be heard. I can do that now, where when you've won once on the PGA Tour, you can't really say the thing you want to say.
"There are a lot of things I've got opinions on. I'm going to say it now. I'm not going to hold anything back."
