Brooks Koepka Warms Up to the Premier Golf League

Brooks Koepka considers PGL if all of the best players go there

Brooks Koepka is the next player to weigh in on where he stands with the Premier Golf League, after Rory McIlroy made a statement of rejection last week. Where McIlroy had a solid negative stance against the PGL, Koepka seems to be open to the idea if the best players in the league begin to make their way to the new league.

‘I just want to play against the best’

After the Honda Classic Pro-Am on Wednesday he explained his openness to the possibility. “I am going to play where the best players play,” Koepka said. “I want to play against the best. Whatever comes of it, comes of it.”

Last week when discussing the Premier Golf League, Rory McIlroy noted the reasoning some players are starting to sway in that direction because of the cash grab. However, Koepka explained that if more money was offered, that would not be a factor in his decision making process to join the Premier Golf League.

Money doesn’t equate happiness

“I just want to be happy. Money is not going to make me happy. I just want to play against the best, and at the same time I just want to play golf.”

In the interview Brooks Koepka reiterated the fact that he wouldn’t be in it just for money. “I know you’re going to write this the wrong way, but it doesn’t matter if somebody gave me $200 million tomorrow,” Koepka said. “It’s not going to change my life. What am I going to get out of it? I already have so much that I could retire now, but I don’t want to. I just want to play golf. It’s not going to change anything. Maybe the only thing I do is buy a plane. That would be it. I don’t see anything that would change my life.”

Even though he is considering this decision, he wants to make it known that the PGA TOUR has done a lot for his career.

“A lot of good things have come from it,” he said. The TOUR has been incredible to us, the way things have developed over the years. We have to see where things go. It’s all very new and it’s all very fast.”

It looks like Brooks Koepka is joining the likes of Phil Mickelson as far as consideration, but it will be interesting to see how it all unfolds.
